A Happy Birthday Play Date

Well, I'll start off by saying I'm so far behind, it's not even funny. The past couple of months have been nothing but challenging, as Sarah has continued to advance and grow up into toddler world. We transitioned out of the crib, into her toddler bed, and got rid of the bottle all at once. Yeah, we were slow at getting rid of the bottle...I was afraid that she would stop taking naps without it. Although the naps were a fight all of their own with that transition, she's still taking them, they're just not as long as they used to be. I know, I know, MOM...I should feel blessed that she's still sleeping at all and I stopped taking naps long before I was Sarah's age. I do miss all that time she gave me in the afternoons though. Either way, what we've been through-It's a horror I don't wish on anyone and I am more than grateful that all of us survived and are on the "other side" of it now.
At our October play date with our Chinese children, we met 2 new friends and celebrated birthdays for 3 of them! Sarah was 3 on the 27th, Lia turned 2 on the 30th and a new friend, Lily turned 2 on the 30th, as well!
Hope you enjoy our little party. The weather was not good, so we had to move to a McDonald's play area. It still worked. The kids had fun, and so did we.
Lia was opening the card that Sarah gave her.

Sarah was slightly excited to open up her present!
Awww...look Mama! Another pink doggie to add to my collection! That makes 3 now that I just MUST sleep with! Mama, you may want to find me a twin bed now, so I can fit with all my animals!

Lia loved her little purple puppy purse!

Lia has the cutest smile! Don't bother trying to get more than one girl to look at the camera at the same time...I have given up on that one!
Yes, Sarah is smiling here...I know-she looks like she's in pain!
Sarah and Lia getting ready to blow out their candles. Sunny decided to give them a hand!

Blowing out candles!

Introducing Lily! Our new friend and she also shares the exact same birthday as Lia!

We are loving our cake!
