Nora turned three this week! She LOVED having a birthday this year and talked about it for months leading up to it. Literally, months. She was always very concerned about when I was going to make her cake and the couple days leading up to her birthday were killer because she wanted me working on it at times when I was not ready which was hard for her to understand.
Nora got some fun new clothes, shoes and toys.
I had baked the cake that morning and once we got home from shopping and after I put Nora down for a nap, I decorated her cake. She picked the design. I had taken her to a bakery a month before and asked her to point out her favorite cake. It looked like the one below but with more gender neutral colors. I snapped a picture of that cake with my iphone and then recreated it at home. I think it turned out very cute, and so did Nora.
