Goodness, a week of birthday celebrations had wiped me out. We decided this year we were not going to do a big party in an attempt to keep it simple. Three small celebrations later (our weekly playgroup, grandma’s and grandpa’s) and I have already put out the word: next year everyone shows up at one place at one time, or they miss out. I have a post half hashed out for Ella today, but Becky is sleeping in 15 minute increments (and has been the last few nights) so enjoy Ella’s birthday interview, in which she is distracted by Polly Pocket, and Alice practically hands me a book on sibling rivalry and says “You’ll want to brush up on this, this is only the beginning.”
Also, at 3:30, you get to see Ella picking up toys with her toes. My genes are alive and well, thank you.
