We had a small celebration for Kendall's birthday on Saturday. We wanted to keep it low key so Kendall wouldn't be subjected to any germs or illness! Hopefully we accomplished that.
Her birthday isn't until the 27th, but our April is very busy so this weekend worked best.
We were very sad Kendall's Nonny was out of town. And very sad her Nonna is still feeling too miserable to leave the house. And very sad her BFF Caleigh was running a fever and had an unexpected visit to the ER. So it wasn't the same without them.
Growing up, my mom always made our birthday cakes. So, Justin and I decided to give it a whirl this year (probably not the best idea when your dish washer is broken) But I think it turned out OK. Not sure if we will continue the tradition, it's way easier to just go buy one!
We had a very nice day with the rest of our family and friends. The big kids actually went swimming (they did the same thing last year...) And that water was crazy cold. They painted birdhouses and played their hearts out.
Kendall chilled out inside with the adults and took everything in! She was a perfect angel the whole afternoon. No crying at all! She was playing the "arching" game when Uncle John was holding her, but other than that she was great.
We are blessed to have so many people who love and look after Kendall.
I can't believe she's almost 2.
