My baby turned 9 today. Can’t believe she’ll be TEN next year. Really – that just can’t be right!
We started off today with the traditional opening of presents in bed. Do you like my wrapping? Material bags and pillowslips for the big boxes. I asked her if she missed unwrapping presents (in paper) but she said no – which is good.
Her main present from us was some Lego City that she had requested.
Amy bought her some Tinkerbell jewellery.
Since her behaviour has not been the best the last few months she missed out on having a party. Instead she had her best friend (from school) over for brunch with the family and a sleepover.
It was a beautiful day so we were able to eat outside. On the menu – pancakes and crossaints with fresh fruit.
Followed by the birthday cake – or cupcakes as the case may be. Amy made and decorated these – didn’t she do a fantastic job?
I’m not sure what I was doing with photo taking today – I really didn’t take many – and I totally forgot to get one of everyone at brunch :-(. Luckily I did think to get one of me and Christy.
And one with her new doll that she got from Nan. You’ll be pleased to know the doll does “real” wees and poos….
