It seems like this day has been over our shoulder for the last two months. We've been telling people she's almost two for several months, and in so many ways Cadance is such a two-year-old.
I wanted to make sure we had a fun day and for her to sense that this is a special day. I have no idea if it worked, but she seemed to be happy about most of what we did.
We started out the morning with some pancakes. Cadance loves pancakes. She was most of the way through her third when we finally stopped eating. She was so stuffed.
For a good majority of the morning we played with balloons. I was going to tape a few balloons on the back of her chair in the kitchen, but that didn't happen, and then Cadance found the bag of balloons in the living and got really excited, and it was all down hill from there. These two balloons were just the beginning. Our living room was filled.
We went to story time at the library, which is one of Cadance's favorite things to do. Then, we went and got noodles for lunch, which is one of her favorite things to eat. She's even getting pretty good at a fork :)
After Steve came home they had some fun coloring.
Then, it was on to the presents. I don't remember Cadance being so good at this. She opened them like an old pro.
Her favorite gift we got her were sunglasses. She had them on most of the evening. It was funny because she kept pushing them up so she could see and then couldn't get them back on her face so she would ask me to put them on, etc. It would have been annoying if she didn't look so stinking cute in them.
We ended the night with cake and ice cream. I don't know where this tradition came from, but thank you. It's a good one. Watch the video and you can that Cadance also likes this tradition.
