We’re a little late, but Avery turned 2 June 1st! She LOVED her Birthday. We had a joint party for her and my sister. Avery’s Birthday is the 1st and my sister’s is the 2nd. We had the party May 31st. Go figure. We actually did it so that my Dad could be there.
We had a cake with 12 candles on one side and 2 on the other. Avery liked blowing out the candles so much, we had to light a candle and let her blow it out about 8 more times. She actually blew out all her candles, too. I was pretty proud of her. We managed to distract her from blowing out candles by giving her a piece of cake. My mom made a jello cake and she got pretty excited about the cool whip on top.
Then we opened presents. She was hilarious. She would get one open and immediately say “a o one?” (other one). At one point she unwrapped a ball and actually threw it over the side of her high chair in her hurry to get the next present.
Sometime in the middle of the unwrapping frenzy my brother started cheering her on. Nathan started yelling “tear! rip! bite!” as she opened the presents and sure enough, this is what she did:
It was pretty hilarious. She had a blast, and now anytime anyone mentions a Birthday her eyes light up. Luckily she gets almost as much of a kick out of other people’s Birthdays as her own. She had a pretty good time at Aunt Clair’s party and Uncle Nathan’s Birthday celebration was yesterday and she was so excited she even wanted to get out of the pool!
