Welcome to Two

The big day. It dawned misty and magical, so after packing Daddy off to work and Finn off to school, Niamh and Mummy walked down to the reserve to get some Birthday Girl photos.

But. Hmmm. There was a lot of this:
Birthday-Grump
(She’s about to yell!)

And this:
No-Wotos
“No Wotos Mummy”

So Mummy took a photo of Niamh’s beautiful Soulemama-birthday-crown on a magical and mystical log, instead.
Birthday-Crown
(Note – I made this yesterday. So much fun – It took me about an hour (and only that long because I was messing around with elastic casings). Niamh does like to wear it about, honestly. At her convenience, not mine!)

Then Niamh had to try out the very wet playground (of course she did):
Birthday-Playground
(At least we got to show off the new shorter ‘do’)

Then we found out Mummy forgot to pack a playground snack. (Ouch). Whereupon we went home, and Niamh had a nice long kip:
Sleepy-Doll

And Mummy got the kitchen ready for this afternoon’s cupcake fest:
Kitchen-Doll

Finally… proof that there was both smiling and crown-wearing yesterday:
Birthday-Crown-Tryout
Happy Birthday beautiful girl!

  9. And I missed Niamh’s birthday, too? Wow, life really has gone on without me. 😆 She’s beautiful and I’m glad that she had a good day, even if you had trouble snapping photos of her to that effect.
