The fun began with a visit from my brother DJ last weekend and his friend Shelby.
Since DJ and Isabelle both have birthdays on the 11th of July, I asked Izzy if she wanted to share her birthday with Uncle DJ.
She thought for a moment and said “…..mmmm…..nope“
Then considered…..and offered to negotiate. “Well….only if we have 2 birthday cakes?“
She said she’d share, but made it abundantly clear that her cake would be pink.
…and his would not!
On her birthday morning, she went on very special daddy-daughter date. Blueberry pancakes with whipped cream…..yummy!
At breakfast, Daddy gave her her first strand of pearls. She thinks she’s a princess!
Her daddy does too!
Her new friend “Kit” came along who has strawberry blonde hair and freckles just like Izzy!
We’ve since been gearing up for her “Cupcake-Themed Fancy Nancy Birthday Party”.
While helping me with the decorations this week, I held up a pink pom-pom that would hang from the ceiling over her tea table at the party.
“What do you think Izzy” I asked.
She gasped theatrically, “Oh Mommy, its so beautiful I could just cry!”
Quite the little drama queen!
Party pictures soon to follow!!
