Today is Ella's 2nd birthday! Her day started off with Lauren, Grant and I waking her up by singing Happy Birthday! At breakfast I found her balancing a blueberry on top of her sippy cup (I'm assuming it was supposed to represent a candle on a cake) and singing, "birthday you you, birthday you you." When Lauren asked Ella how old she is, Ella's response was,"almost two." I guess now that she's actually two we'll have to retrain her.
As for the rest, it has yet to happen. And although Ella hasn't opened up any gifts yet, she has received one of the best gifts from Lauren and Grant. They have been treating their little sister like a queen, telling Ella what a special day it is, and including her in all their play (not usually the case). What a treat for me too.
