Maisy turns TWO!

Maisy turned TWO today with family and friends.  It was a beautifully warm day and we had a fun party at our house with yummy burrito lunch from Los Cantaros and a DELICIOUS cake from Hopkins Street Bakery in Berkeley (thanks again Emily!).  It was a perfect garden birthday party.

Maisy loved being serenaded by all of her friends and family.  She even joined in the singing herself!

Maisy got a very cute Snow White costume from Auntie, Uncle Rigo and Elijah.  She also got some very squeaky sandals from Mike and Janet.  The squeakers were fun to watch her figure out, but not so fun on the ears!  Somehow the squeakers got removed after she went to bed….

Nana and Papa got Maisy a dollhouse for her birthday and it’s just adorable.

Everything went wonderfully!  It was a great day.  Maisy is very lucky to have such fantastic family and friends.

Here is a picture of me and my sister due just two weeks apart.  I’m 27 weeks and Kim is 25 weeks.

We finished Maisy’s big girl room and are so happy with it and so is Maisy!  We have moved the bedtime routine into that room and we are doing lots of playing in there, but for now she’s still sleeping in her crib.  When we get back from vacation, we’ll move her into her big girl bed.  She’s been asking to sleep in there, so I hope the enthusiasm sticks!

Todd is off to Baltimore for a conference early tomorrow and next week Maisy and I will head off to NY for Grandma’s 100th birthday!  Todd will meet us there later in the week.  Luckily Uncle Steven is going to fly out to NY with Maisy and me- whew!

More later-

Much love, Todd, Becky, Maisy and baby girl
