As you know, I'm sure, yesterday was Mady's Birthday! She likes to call it her Happy Happy!! She was too funny because all day long I asked her who's birthday it was and she said "NANA's!" No you silly girl, its yours!
The night previous to her birthday was her first night in her big girl bed. Although it was difficult, took about an hour, to get her to go to sleep, she slept through the night with no problems. I think she was more scared of the dark then the bed.
She was up bright and early like usual. We let Daddy sleep since he just got home from work and we headed out into the living room. I had decorated a little bit for her with balloons and a happy birthday sign. When she saw it she said, "Happy Party!" Love that girl!
The day turned out pretty low key because Mady came down the a stomach bug. She hardly ate anything. I didn't realize it until after we got her favorite Chick-fil-a nuggets for lunch and she hardly touched them then proceeded to have a really, super nasty diaper and basically continued throughout the day.
She opened her presents from Matt and I after lunch and played a little bit before her nap. We got her a Cinderella doll and the princess busy book which she loved!
She did get some special time with Daddy who took her to Target to get a night light for her room and then to the park. She was one happy girl!
When she got back, she had a present waiting her from my parents. Oh my goodness she loved what they sent her! Jack and Gus Gus stuffed animals and a puzzle. Her face was priceless when she opened them.
We had plans of going to Friendly's after dinner for ice cream and we were meeting our friends there but since she was not eating and having stomach issues I just made some cupcakes and our friends came here. It was such a nice night and Mady absolutely loves Franki so she was happy she was here. Poor girl ended up having an apple sauce and crackers for dinner. What a birthday dinner!
They were so sweet to bring Mady a present which was the Cinderella baby doll. Oh she was so excited yet again. She slept with her last night.
She finally went to bed at 8 pm and woke up a few times last night I'm guessing now since she was not feeling well.
This morning she has thrown up once and is currently asleep on the floor. If you know my child you know how rare that is. Poor girl.
We are celebrating with family in NJ next weekend and I know she is going to have a blast!
It was not exactly how I pictured her birthday going but hey that's life! No worries, once she is feeling better, you better believe we are making a trip to Friendly's for some belated birthday ice cream!
