Happy Birthday Princess!

Today is also my sweet baby girl’s birthday and even though I’m sick, I just have to share some of her sweetness with you! We started our morning with a Princess Spa Bath (she loves a bubble bath). You’d never know she also has a bad cold. That girl is so full of joy, she made us all smile in between our coughing and sneezing.

Today is a playschool day (which worked out great for her sick momma). I’ve been saving this outfit for a day with somewhere special to go. Before we left, our whole family delighted in her cuteness for breakfast! And then she went to Ms. Becky’s house where they are having a little party for her during lunch. Since I’m too sick to join the fun, I left my camera there so I”ll be sure to post her party pictures later.
