Mia's Birthday

October 9th fell on a Tuesday this year. The day my baby turned into a 2 year old.

Even though we had a bigger birthday party scheduled later in the month, I decided to take half the day off work to celebrate just the two of us. 

After we had some professional photos taken (for our Christmas cards) we headed to the park so Mia could enjoy her birthday present.
She hasn't quite gotten the hang of pedaling which is where the mommy handlebar comes in.
But she loved it!
Then we grabbed dinner at Applebee's and Mia was serenaded by the wait staff.
Afterwards we headed home for a happy birthday cupcake. She was a bit impatient waiting for it.
Mommy sang to her again and she blew out her candle.
And opened a present mailed from her Grandpa and Grandma in Wyoming.
She got a carrying case for her Tag reader.
And some new books.
It was a good day.

I love the photo waiting for the cupcake! I have a photo of my granddaughter with almost the same expression, face in hands and all, at her 2nd birthday party. Too funny! Looks like a special day for both Mia and Mommy.

Happy belated birthday!!! What a nice way to spend the day. Love the trike! We'll be celebrating our second bday on Friday. My daughter is getting a tricycle too. Can't wait to try it out. We'll have to practise in the playroom until the spring though...too much snow!!!
