Happy Birthday
Lily is 3!
Okay so I have a story to tell. When I was pregnant with my first, before I knew what sex the baby was, I saw a little girl in a tutu at the store. I broke down and cried. I was SO scared to have a little girl that was girly and needed to wear a dress to the grocery store. Pink, and dresses, and little bling outfits were petrifying to me.
And here comes Lily. She is the best little sparkly pink princess EVER. She has converted me to the world of being a mom of a true girl. When she was barley a year old she would wake up from her nap and point to her closet demanding to wear a dress. Everyday at bedtime or just to go to the library she frequently has a dress on over her clothes. I LOVE and ADORE my princess Lily. She is so very special and I'll go pink for her any day.

Anyway so when it came time for her birthday there was no question. We had a princess dress up tea party.

She had a couple of her little friends over to be princesses.

Angelina and Marti LOVED decorating the castle cake with hearts and sprinkles all over the pink frosting.

We painted their nails.

We put make-up on.

They completed their outfit with earrings and tiaras. We sat down to milk and cookies.

And talked about how COOL it is to be a princess.

Lily loved her little princess party.

Watch out Danica, a wise man told me one time that it was important for his son to never marry a girl whose dad called her princess. Tough expectations.

Yah, my favorite part of this party was you at that tiny table talking to them about being a princess. Just a little bit of a uhm mismatch....but the party was so cute.
