Macie is 2!
She's the apple of my eye, and has the glasses to boot.
And before I get into the post, I really want to remember that I actually made this cake. Poor Penny had to be in her swing for just a few hours (which she was asleep most of the time for) so I could make this cake. It took me longer than anticipated. There was no party theme (it was just a family party this year, Dh's family and my family, done.) but Macie is so into Mic.key Mouse clubhouse that I thought a Mickey cake would go over well, and it did.
My favorite part of the party was that this is the first time Macie figured out what presents were and that she can open them by herself. Although then the hard part was her opening something, only to have it taken away so she can open something else! She only had about 7 presents to open, I'm imagining if we'd invited everyone like last year! That may have been overwhelming to open so many presents. It was just so much fun to have her enjoying herself.
And of course, being a big sister is kind of a big deal. Macie and Penelope are doing well. So far I haven't noticed any jealousy by Macie, just normal two year old stuff. I just love these girls so much! I'm so grateful to have them.
This is what we've been up to. Things are getting better (my last post was long!) and I'm feeling like we're getting a bit of a routine. One thing that is hard to do is look at pictures, so I haven't printed any pictures out in a while. I need to get on that. How often do you all actually go and print out the pictures? Or are you like me and they sit on your computer forever?!
