Ok, enough of the sappy stuff - here's the good stuff.
We set off Saturday morning to head to the Brevard Zoo which has been a tradition for Natalie. We first started going on her 2nd birthday and have gone every year since.
This year, Christian, Anilyse and Grammy came with us!
Here's some photos of the day:
|My diva - looking fierce|
|We love feeding this deer every time we go. She's so sweet!|
|Of course we HAD to feed the giraffes!|
|They had Christmas crafts set up around the park.|
Natalie got another stuffed giraffe from the zoo (which is also a tradition). So, to date we have Daddy Giraffe (2nd birthday), Mommy Giraffe (3rd birthday), Baby Giraffe (gift from Aunt Jodi) and now Grammy Giraffe (4th birthday). My girl loves giraffes!
After the zoo, we drove home and put Nati down for a nap. We kicked it into high gear and decorated for her birthday party! This is the first year she was aware of parties and she was so excited!
|This is the cutest little hat! She was grumpy when I took the picture - made it even cuter!|
|She loved this giraffe snuggle blankie and insisted in taking it immediately to her room to put on her bed!|
|Adding to her collection.|
|Yes, I'm a bad Mom, I got my Christmas baby a Christmas birthday cake. I'm told, that as she gets older, she will HATE any reference to Christmas associated with her birthday. Oh well. This year she LOVED it!|
All in all, a great birthday! I'd say she had a great time! I'm slowly recovering from loosing my baby and am fulling embracing having a little girl! Can't wait for many more birthdays to come!
