Vivian Turns Two

Friday was Vivian’s birthday!

(She has, by all accounts, been in “terrible twos” mode for months now. I’m excited that we finally have a new digit to show for it.)

Behold the photo recap of the festivities.

Vivian got to continue our crazy tradition of ice cream for birthday breakfast. It went over much better on birthday #2 than it did on #1.

Vivi’s babysitter helped her decorate cupcakes.

Beautiful!

eating soup

In honor of her Japanese birth, dinner was at our favorite sushi place. Viv enjoyed “noo-noo soup” (udon noodles and plain broth) and edamame.

Mommy and Daddy surprised her with her very own kitchen.

We had to open, play with, read, put on, etc, every gift as it was opened!

Viv got a new doll... and the doll got a bunch of stuff, too.

Brand new princess castle!

New princess castle and new kitty shirt.

Favorite words of the moment are “hot,” “cold,” and “warm” — so the new mittens and hat are perfect conversation starters.

We also went to a bounce-house-park on Saturday.

Vivian had a little bit of fun…

…and we got a few good pictures…

…but actually she found the whole thing loud and intimidating, and she mostly played with the non-inflatable toys with this look on her face!

Five

And then we watched Finding Nemo.

I hope you enjoyed this peek into Vivi’s birthday celebration, and thank you to all the grandparents, aunts, and uncles (the “great-” ones, and the just-regular-old good ones!) for all the excellent gifts you all sent! Er, sorry if yours were not pictured; we still appreciate them!
