Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday!
Wide eyes, bewildered eyes, innocent eyes filled with joy. The little girl was awoken early as her parents hid behind the door with the video camera on record. As she blinked several times she made a ‘wwwwoooooaaa!’ sound while looking around her room; a room filled with balloons and presents that sparkled in the morning light. In particular she noted the purple balloon sat in a blue bucket ready for the beach and smiled. “Mama, Dada” she mumbled as she crawled out of bed in a sleepy haze. They sniggered and then burst in with hoots of delight to join in with a ripping frenzy and to delight in all the lovely cards and gifts received.

Hand-knitted jumpers sent from afar, a baking set with her very own rolling pin, a bucket and spade for sandy beach days and pretty cards with the number 2 written in big glittery letters surrounded her. A lazy morning ensued watching musicals and eating big chunks of messy chocolate cake by the handful before the family packed themselves into their wagon to head to Deauville on the most perfect of blue days. 3 hours were spent making sandcastles, flying a kite, chasing Milla and counting shells. More cake was eaten and smiles flowed like the water that drifted in and out and glittered in the sun’s rays. A perfect Birthday for a perfect girl.

Happy Birthday!
Sorry for no posts. We went on a very important trip to spend quality time with one of my dearest friends and her newborn and when we returned I was immediately consumed with preparations for Isabella’s Birthday! And of course - thank you all for the wonderful Birthday cards and presents, which really made her day.

Happy Birthday!
