Rose #3 is 2!

On Saturday Rose #3 turned 2! Every time we told her "happy birthday" she did her weird leaping around dance, where she waves her arms and hops around in a little circle. Perhaps she is one part bird.

We had birthday lunch with Ahma and Ahgong at a buffet restaurant they like. The wait staff there knows Rose #3 from her frequent visits there when Ahma and Ahgong take the girls out for lunch. Here she is posing with the special birthday cake that the staff made for her:

It looks like sushi but trust me, it is small Asian pastries with a lot of chocolate sauce drizzled over the top. She loved eating her special birthday cake. In case if you are wondering if the container at the bottom of the picture is ketchup, it is. The buffet also serves mac and cheese and french fries!

On Saturday evening we had our neighbors over for dinner for a birthday party. Rose #3 just loves them, and we had a great time eating burgers off the grill. We all sang happy birthday to Rose #3, and she opened her gifts from us - Ladybug Girl and a Lemon Drop Dora. Lemon Drop Dora smells just like a bottle of furniture polish. Yum.

When I first found out I was pregnant with Rose #3 it was, to put it mildly, a bit of a shock. But now I can't imagine life without her. She looks like a miniature version of Rose #1 but she has a personality and a mind all her own. She is very stubborn and independent and she always wants to be included. That must be the personality of the youngest child! Now that she can talk I love chatting with her, and tonight we were reading the book Click Clack Moo, Cows That Type. Rose #3 can say: "Click Clack MOOOOOO!" I love you so much little bunny. Happy birthday!!
