(somebody did like blowing out candles, did NOT like having Happy Birthday sung to her- gotta say I’m with her on both counts.)


Welcome to Becca’s 2and birthday. Mickey Mouse and Dora share equal billing, as they are her 2 favorite characters/tv shows/toys. Mickey had plates & napkins, and also cute cupcake stickers atop (yum) Barefoot Contessa coconut cupcakes. Dora stood atop the cake & graced the cupcake wrappers. I don’t think Rebecca could have been happier about it.


She did poke her fingers into the frosting (on cake) this morning and I had to fix it up. It’s ok – I knew she was going to try and “eat eat my Doooo-aaaah cake” at some point.


yellow cake AND chocolate cake – because her majesty, when asked to choose which one said “yes” repeatedly and mommy is a sucker for baking challenges.


She saw this at a friend’s house and went nuts a few weeks back and I suggested to Nana & Papa they might want to look into it. She’s so happy to have her own little vanity & stool.


Big sister got her a set of tiny Mickey books. They are obsessed with tiny books – and already these are a huge hit too. She also got a little bag & bear (hand sewn by great aunt and great grandma), a few more books, and presents from mom & dad yet to be opened. We’re taking our time.


So that’s a glimpse of Miss Rebecca’s 2and birthday. It was nice to have a lunch party with just grandparents & very low-key. Of course I hung streamers and made it “so beuuuu-fuuuul” for her, and now we will spend the rest of the day recovering – much like the day she was born.

  5. Thank you for the peek at Lil’ Miss Rebcca’s very Happy 2nd Birthday party~everything is picture perfect… what a great Mom you are, May!

  6. Happy Birthday to Rebecca! I have a little 3 yr old great niece Dakota who’d love that vanity. She’s into Dora too although now that she’s turned 3 she’s starting to edge toward the Disney Princesses. My other 3 1/2 yr old great niece informed me yesterday that she has a Princess backpack. Aren’t little girls awesome!!
