This year my cutsie Ellie's birthday was on Thanksgiving. My girl turned FOUR YEARS OLD! Eeeek a whole 48 months! teehee
Makes me feel so old. A 4 year old and an almost 2 month old. What the?! When did this happen? Me? All growed up.
I blew up tons of balloons and put them in her room while she was sleeping. I bought like 3 bags of balloons thinking I could totally blow them all up and really fill up her room. Ah geeze. Seriously? What was I thinking? I think I blew up MAYBE 20 out of the 150 balloons and called it a night with a massive headache. Ellie of course snuck into my bed in the middle of the night. The next morning when we went in her room to get her dressed for the day she said, "Mom why did you put all these balloons in my room?"
I told her, "Well your the birthday girl so I thought you would love all the balloons to wake up to."
"Well they scared me."
When I asked Ellie what she wanted for her birthday she said she wanted a make over. Oh my goodness what 4 year old asks for a make over? She said she wanted to get her hair done and put on make up and then go get her nails painted.
So I let her pick out her outfit and did her hair all fancy. No make up though. She's really killing me with that. We still need to get our nails did. All day Ellie referred to herself as 'the birthday girl'.
Then we had our Thanksgiving with another wife whose husband is deployed and her little boy.
That night I asked her if she had a good birthday and she said she loved it because we played together as a family. Such a stinkin cutie.
