We celebrated Lilah's birthday (as a family) today. We went out for a delicious breakfast together, came home and she tore into all the cards and presents! She was thrilled, absolutely thrilled with all her presents. I am always in awe with everyone's generosity to Lilah, she is blessed to have so many wonderful family and friends in her life. Afterwards we took her to her most favourite place in the world - the swimming pool. She and I go swimming every Wednesday, so she was eager to show her Baba the new tricks she'd learned! And finally, we ended the day with cake. The exact cake she asked for: "A yellow cake with an elephant on top!" What can I say, the girl has good taste, I was very surprised it wasn't a Dora the Explorer cake though, because she talked about that for a while after her third birthday. Oh well, she's a girl, who is well known to change her mind and have us all scratching our heads! And that's one of the things we absolutely adore about her, her spontaneity. Lilah chose the (schleich) elephant at Mrs. Tiggy Winkles and the bunting on the cake was an idea that I came across on Etsy. It was a wonderful day.
