Diva is two years old! Where does the time go? We had a fun day, although it started out a little not-so-fun (for mommy at least.) This morning I had to start off Diva's day with a time-out after she slapped her 4 week old sister in the face (purposefully!!) Then, being the sweet, caring, generous mommy that I am I decided to take her to Jamba Juice. Although this is strictly a daddy-daughter outing on daddy's days off. She even said, "Daddy...Jamba!!!" How dare I infringe on her dates with daddy!! She didn't protest too much so away we went. I ordered her a Strawberry's Whirl and we walked outside to the amphitheater to hang out on the steps. She then decided to trip and fall off the top step directly into a pile of mud sending her Strawberry's whirl onto the hard concrete. Let me tell you it is pretty difficult trying to console a [VERY MUDDY] 2 year- old whilst carrying a newborn in a sling along with your diaper bag and your 2 year-old's baby doll. I carried her to Starbucks, cleaned her up in the bathroom, ditched any last efforts of trying to be a "fun" mommy and left. Nap time soon followed.
We managed to salvage the rest of her day by throwing her a fun little party at my parent's house. (thanks mom and dad!) Nee Nee and Papa joined us and Diva was SPOILED ROTTEN by the MANY MANY presents she received. Book, puzzles, clothes, sunglasses, TWO lawn mowers, lip-gloss were among the list of gifts. However the present she was most excited about was this;
Nee Nee and Papa gave her a bike just her size! She LOVES IT!!!
She DID love her books as well....
But this dang bike stole all my gift-giving thunder (kidding Nee Nee!)
And of course had to throw in pics of the newest little one.
Diva reveled in the spotlight (what else is new??)
And proudly showing off her sweeeeeet new sunglasses Gamma gave her.
All in all it was a fun night and I'm grateful to have family so close by to share these moments with us. Diva is surrounded by a lot of love and attention so I don't feel too guilty leaving her for 10 minutes to watch Blue's Clues while I feed my other daughter. :)
