Happy Birthday Laila !

Our lovely little Laila turned four on Monday so we celebrate her special day on Sunday.  As always the person celebrating the birthday got to pick the meals for the day so for breakfast we dined on sausages, pancakes and fruit.  For lunch Laila asked to go to MacDonald's with her daddy.

We had originally planned a little party for her on Sunday afternoon and the two friends she invited both ended up getting sick (our preschool has had a nasty virus going around) and were not able to come.  Laila was sad of course but we forged forward and celebrated her birthday.

Meatballs and pasta were on the menu for supper then we ate cake !  Sophie has been watching Yo Gabba Gabba so Laila watches by default.  When it came to what she wanted for her cake it was Yo Gabba Gabba's Foofa character.  I created Foofa out of gum paste/fondant and Hayden helped me decorate the actual cake.  I think we did a pretty good job and she was thrilled !

Grammie and Grampie skyped with us to sing Happy Birthday.

Then we opened presents.  She was thrilled to get the Tangled barbie, a few more sets for her dollhouse and her first LEGO set.

All in all it was a really nice day and I think she was really pleased.  On Monday her class threw a little birthday party and again she was so happy to be singled out.

Laila has had an incredible year of growth on a number of fronts.  This time last year she was barely speaking but now she is very fluent and her vocabulary continues to grow every day.  Her preschool has been a perfect fit for her and we are excited for what will happen for her in the new year.

Happy Birthday sweet Laila !  We know you will rock out this coming year with style and grace !!
