Peanut has been 2 years old for 2 weeks. Weirdly enough, we haven’t finished her birthday celebration, but we certainly started. Her birthday fell on a Sunday this year and we already visit family for lunch and dinner on Sundays, so we just continued as normal with some extra birthday pizzazz.
Peanut woke up early and made Daddy cuddle with her on the couch while she watched Super Why.
Mama made Peanut birthday breakfast scones. Mmm...
Peanut opened her gift and handed Every. Single. Little. Piece. Of. Paper. to daddy as she did so.
Peanut was pretty thoroughly happy about her tea set. It sings "I'm a little teapot" when you tip up the teapot!
Then of course she had to have some tea.
And Daddy needs tea too!
Then we went over to Oma and Opa's house for lunch.
Oma and Opa got her a bike!!! (along with some books and coloring books)
Uncle Jason and Aunt Sabrina gave Peanut some cute clothes. I told her to hold them up to her like she was wearing them. She didn't understand. 😛
Peanut got a whole cupcake to herself!

Then we went over to Boompa's, Great-Grandpa's, and Great-Grandma's house. She got LOTS of books!

Then we went to dinner at Mema's and Pop Pop's.
Peanut got letter, number, and color cards and another book!
Peanut got a happy birthday brownie cake!
And she blew out the candle almost all by herself!
As I discussed in this post, we’re trying to minimalise around our house. In light of this fact, we asked everyone to limit their birthday gifts and to put money into her college saving fund more than anything. Big thanks to everyone for adding to her account! At this rate, she’ll have plenty for college!
We still haven’t done our family celebration. We decided not to do a big party with friends this year. Figured time could be better spent out doing something fun as a family. I’ll do another post later on our trip to (hopefully if the weather agrees with us) the zoo. Seems like a great place to go because she loved going there for her birthday last year!
