A special day

Wednesday was my daughter's actual birthday. Unfortunately, on Wednesdays, Daddy has a grad class he takes where he has to lock himself in the den for 3 hours while he "attends" class on the computer via webcast. However, we made the best of it and had a pretty good evening together, beginning with some pictures:

Love this picture of her. She insisted on wearing green pants after getting up from her nap, and
insisted on the blue bow, as well. Not Mommy' ideal birthday picture outfit,
 but it's all her and I love that.

Took a lot of pictures to get this one real smile.

Went through a lot of these kinds of moments before and after that last shot.
 Her favorite meal is pancakes. So, I made her pancakes with sprinkles in them, in the shape of Mickey Mouse. She was super excited about this :)
"Spwinkles pancakes!"
 And a dance party to end the day...

This is what I will remember about Mallory's second birthday.


  1. Oh, she's so, so darling. I have granddaughters almost 4 and 18 months. I understand exactly about the clothes & the drama. Just enjoy every moment. Love the dancing too! Happy birthday to Mallory!

  2. She is precious. Love the shows a distinct look at style...and the dance at the end!!! Loved this. She is a beautiful little girl and looks like she had a fun birthday. Now she can show her dad these pictures so that he can enjoy it too. Jackie

  3. Lovely words punctuated with darling pictures.

  4. She is a doll! Your pictures capture her personality. It sounds like she had a nearly perfect birthday.

  5. What a cutie pie! I love the dance party to end the evening and her personality imprinted in the outfit she chose. She's a lucky girl to get Mickey Mouse sprinkle pancakes!

  6. What a lucky little girl to have such a special birthday. And how blessed you are!
