Brooklyn is 3 !

Brooklyn turned 3 years old yesterday! It was a very fun day for her and she was such a good girl all day long. For those of you who know Brooklyn very well, this is quite a big deal for her to be good. It has been a long year of the terrible two's and I am just crossing my fingers that #3 will be somewhat better.
She chose Orange chicken and Rice with Broccoli for her birthday dinner.
I gave her my old wooden dollhouse that my Grandpa Reynolds made for me when I was just her age.

The ironing board and iron is also vintage Jennie.


The pretty princess with her totally awesome Mrs. Black cake. (modeled after a stuffed cat named Mrs. Black who used to be a real cat when her uncle Nicky was little. a long story.) But that is the cake she requested.
We had a good day yesterday and I am so thankful for my mostly sweet little girl. I love her so very much and love almsot everyday that I spend with her! We had some big milestones take place this last year which included potty training, moving to a twinsized bed, now sharing a room with her brother, and getting rid of her Binkey!!
Happy Birthday Brooklyn I love you!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BROOKIE! So fun, Jennie! I can't believe she's 3!!! I love the cake...Did you make that one as well? So crafty! And I love that you gave her things you used to use at her age...How totally adorable. I don't think I have anything vintage to give to Claire! How depressing.

She is adorable as is her dress. I love that you gave her heirloom toys. So cool.
