Emery Turned 2 (a month ago...)

Happy second BIRTHDAY sweet girl (on November 21)!!

 She loves her new Dora bed. We said we would never buy such commercial things such as this but after having to borrow an identical bed when family was in town, E fell in love with it. So behold, the bed.

This is the Rollie Pollie Ollie cake I made for E. It took a total of 5 hours to make, with the baking, cooling, assembling, frosting etc. She wanted nothing to do with it. I don't know if it was the candle flame, the out of tune Happy Birthday song, having the lights off, or just a combination of it all, but she bawled her face off. So then I went up stairs and cried as well. A lot of work for nothing.
Next year she is getting a donut. No candle.

We love Emery so much. She is an incredible addition to our small family. She has also become a very great helper to our newest addition. Rivers has been her little doll, chair, distraction for her to get into trouble, and best friend. They love each other so much and  I have really enjoyed watching them truly bond. Happy Birthday Emery (all the details of what she has been up to and her stats etc have been written down BY HAND in a journal. You know, the kind with paper in it).
