May is my birthday month, so of course it's always been my favorite month. But then four years ago, my first baby was born in May, too, and suddenly the month got even more fun! Iris is loving all this birthday attention. We already had her party last week and she just had another one at daycare yesterday, but that won't stop us from celebrating her official birthday all weekend long.
I'm going to start using this fun birthday tradition of having Iris jump through some streamers into her new year. We're also hoping to squeeze in a picnic and, assuming the forecast is right about all the rain, we'll probably hit up the Children's Museum. I've thrifted her a few new plastic animals for her immense collection, plus she's going to get a kid-proof digital camera! I hope she likes it—I'm excited to see what she photographs.
This kiddo is truly a delight. I'm so proud of who she is and honored to be a part of her life. Lately when she gets mad at me, she says stuff like, "Mama, if you don't listen to me I'm never going to snuggle with you again! Never—not for two, four, THREE days!" Oh, my sweet, you know just how to get to me.
In honor of my little big girl's big day, I'm having a sale in the shop! From now through the end of May, save 10% off any order of two or more items with the code TWOCUTE.
