Happy 2nd Birthday, Little Miss Magic
Photo-A-Day #1646

Today our little girl turned 2 years old. I am in awe of how much she has grown and changed since her birth two short years ago. She is such a funny little kid, she has amazing comic timing. She is a gentle soul and so sensitive. I sometimes cannot imagine how I can love someone so much more every single day

This morning we celebrated by relaxing and sleeping to a decent hour. It has been so long since I’ve slept past 5:30am. Allison and I gave Eva her birthday gifts. We decided to give her a VTech laptop. Sure it is for 3-6 year olds but since she wants to be more like momma and dada she loved it. She picked it up and started “working on computer”.

She was even able to tear herself away from the amazing pair of dolls that Bonnie and Howard got her. Those dolls bring interactive to a whole new level. The big winner of all the toys however was a $10 giant set of plastic replicas of foods for Eva’s little kitchen. Her imagination is developing so quickly as well. She is constantly bringing me food and drinks that she cooks in her little kitchen. I look forward to the meals that she’ll be bringing me from now on.

We were going to take Eva to the Children’s Museum in Providence but decided to tone it down so we went to the Emerald Square Mall so we could take her on the carousel. We always joke that there is no need to bring her to Disney or any other place like that because we could take her to the mall and have just as much fun. We proved that today. Grandpa Dano got her tickets to ride and he took her around once and then I took her a few times. Then our friend Michele and her kids Audrey and Nate arrived. They went around with us twice so Eva had herself four rides on the carousel and loved every one of them.

We went over to the Moose Cabin for a birthday lunch. It was Allison, Eva, Grandpa Dano and Mimi and Me. We shared (and attacked) a giant plate of nachos and when I say giant I mean that after eating that we had no need of anything else, it was that big. The Moose Cabin has a very special place in my heart because that was where Allison and I had our rehearsal dinner, it was where I went with my parents on the day that Eva was born. It doesn’t hurt that the place also has some delicious food.

In all it was a fantastic day. Now Eva is off with Mimi and Grandpa Dano visiting Allison’s brother and sister-in-law and their daughter. So Eva gets to play with her baby cousin for a couple of days and Allison and I get some time alone. But not before we took this photo.

      Rob,
      Thank you, Eva loved her little birthday, she kept saying that she was going to a party. It was very fun. Glad you liked the pictures too.

    Wow, you got yourself one smart and adorable little lady there. I happen to know an eligible 3-year old boy who is equally precious even though his Mom is a pain in the butt ;-)

    Count the blessings!
