Cake For Breakfast

When I came home from my business trip in the wee hours of this morning I tiptoed upstairs to wish my sleeping baby a Happy Birthday. Lola did not wake up when I softly whispered "I love you" in her ear. When she sleeps she is still my baby. But when she's awake, not anymore. She's three. A big girl.

This morning at 7:00 AM, I was awakened by my now three year old, proudly proclaiming "It's MY birthday." Still half asleep, I stumbled out of bed to decorate the kitchen and her chair, and do some last minute gift wrapping. And then we had cake. For breakfast!

Three years ago today I met this creature for the first time, after nurturing her in my womb for nine months. It's hard to imagine how tiny she was, how helpless. Today Lola stands three feet something tall, and grows more independent by the minute. She is definitely not a baby anymore.

She's a biker chick...

Happy Birthday, Lola! I love you. A little bit more every day.

Many happy returns to your girl!
I adore sleeping children--I still sneak up to stare at my own sometimes while they're in dreamland.

Happy birthday, she's very cute. Time flies when you're having fun. I didn't realise that it's already been so long since your move.
Your blog is really great.

Just stopping by from SITS. Happy Birthday to your daughter - she is just so pretty. Doesn't the time just go by so fast? My daughter turned 3 in February and I keep wondering where did my baby go and how did she get replaced with this amazing little girl without my even noticing?

Have a wonderful day celebrating with her
