Yep, it's my birthday. I'm 33, and not ashamed to admit it. We celebrated today with a playdate, and our wonderful friends brought over flowers, food, and cupcakes! I put up some leftover streamers which Ingrid thought was pretty cool. We cleared the floor for maximum play space, and then we all sat over in the corner anyway...Why is that? I swear it happens all the time, we end up standing in the kitchen or sitting all scrunched up together by the table.
Here is Ingrid with Olivia. This just made me want a baby SO BAD!! Ingrid was really cute with her, although I think she just wanted Olivia's toy giraffe...
The kids had fun running around, eating food, playing with the play dough we made yesterday. Thank you very much MaryAnne for the tip of putting the coloring into the water! When my mom would make it we'd knead the coloring in and end up with stained hands. So much easier putting it in the water!
So now the party is done, Ingrid's in bed, and I'm on my way. Thank you so much to my ladies for coming and celebrating with me!
And, to all you Gabba fans, I just got this email from the PR person for the show. NEW EPISODES are coming!! I'm so glad, I am SO SO SO sick of the ones they show now. Ingrid loves the show and will watch the same one 200 times. I need new episodes dearly! Here's the rundown of the new shows:
