Lila is Two

Happy Birthday Beautiful!

Yesterday was my darling Lila's 2nd birthday. Even though she doesn't fully understand birthdays, we wanted to make sure she felt special, especially with everything going on. I had an all day work meeting so I didn't get to do as much, but Micah did an excellent job taking care of her.

Micah first took her to breakfast at Kneader's. They shared some french toast. Then he took her to the big wooden park in PG. Lila was in heaven! She LOVES being outside and playing at the park, especially when other kids are around. She's super friendly and outgoing and so loves to see other children. After getting exhausted at the park, he took her to lunch at McDonald's where she got her first ever happy meal! I'm sure she doesn't know what that means, but I remember wanting those as a kid. ;)

Later, after her nap and I was home from work, we sang "Happy Birthday" to her and ate cupcakes from The Sweet Tooth Fairy. She loved having us sing to her. Then, we just spent lots of time together as a family... minus me leaving for trips to the hospital.

It was such a great day and I hope Lila felt special. We are going to have a birthday party for her when things settle down... when Brighton gets home, we're done moving, no work meetings, etc. I'm SO excited for it! It's going to be Curious George themed and I have it all planned out. I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. Happy birthday Lila! Breakfast at Kneader's sounds like the perfect way to start a celebration!
    haha I had to laugh at your McDonald's comment because I was that same way too! I always wanted to get a happy meal, but we rarely went out :)
    So happy to hear that Brighton is home now. Emily texted me today and we're coming up together for your shower. Can't wait to see ya!

    1. Sorry... Brighton isn't home yet. I just meant when he gets home. :)

  2. Happy Birthday Princess Lila. Daddy was super cool taking you to all those wonderful places during the day. Big love, kisses and hugs to you all. Love Donna, Sandy, Cherish and Ella xxxxx
