In The Kitchen With Liv


Guess what she did this week? Baked her own 3rd birthday cake.

It was yellow, upon special request. The end result was not exact picture worthy but it was yellow and it was sweet. And, ultimately newly turned three year olds don't seem to care about perfection when it comes to birthday cakes. They only want yellow and sticky and sweet. The cake, she had been asking for cake for weeks. No presents, no fanfare, just cake.

And it was yellow, sticky and sweet. Trust me.

She scored a semi new wooden kitchen sized perfectly for someone 39" tall. (thanks for the recycle opportunity, Miss Rachel) It has provided hours of fun already.

As I got her ready for bed at the end of the big day, I told her that she was officially not allowed to grow one inch more or age one more day. That was an order, an order to which she laughed. Then I kissed her soft round outy belly button knowing we are at the tail end soft round outy belly button kisses. Truth be told I wouldn't mind having my 10 month old Livi back. She's just that sweet of a baby, I mean toddler, I mean three year old.

Pass the tissues. My baby is 3.

She made her own cake!?
I'm impressed.

Happy 3rd birthday, sweet girl! Glad it was everything you'd hoped it would be!

It's hard to believe our girls are turning 3! Muriels got the I'm 3 - showing the three fingers down already and she has a month and a half to wait.

Go Liv on the baking! Yum!

Happy Birthday Olivia!

39" tall?! Wow! China must have received your memo mentioning family height. They didn't get the message that we're a tall family; our sweetie is still just a smidge under 36".

I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Thanks for the email.

Happy Birthday!! Yes, they grow up so fast! We have had AA for nine weeks, she is 26 months old and I want her to stay a "baby". She is so cuddly now!
Have fun with cake and kisses!
