Kacey's 3!!!

Kacey's spent the last 3 days celebrating her 3rd birthday, which is officially today!
Thursday, she was treated like a princess at Preschool. I brought cupcakes in and she shared with all her friends. They sang to her and she got pretty bracelets!

Then, day 2 she got Uncle Bryan, Aunt Rosie and Uncle Aaron for her birthday- she's been saying that all week! And we partied at Claim Jumper, in my previous post. Super fun!


Today, her actual birthday... we went to Cici's with my parents. Happy group!

Pretty Girl.

Kadyn LOVED the balloons!

Kacey got a ton of presents, too many to name... but thank you to everyone who remembered her. She loved everything.

I searched high and low and found "Goofy's Son" (1 and 2) on dvd. She loves it, but a while back Daddy erased it from the dvr. She was heartbroken, oh my gosh.. traumatic! So she was so excited to get it... and now she can watch it anywhere in the house!

Uncle Bryan and Aunt Rose got her way cute stuff, but this bag is adorable! It's a castle with doors, that open. Kylie and Kacey play with it constantly.

I started feeling really badly for Kylie. It's not her special day, she knew that. I could see in her little eyes that she'd remind herself it was Kacey's birthday... not her toys to play with. Kinda sad. BUT Uncle Bryan and Rosie got her some special princess school supplies, even though it was Kacey's birthday :) So that was really nice.

I can't believe my little Kacey is three.... my baby who didn't sleep through the night until she was 18 months. My baby who cried for the first year of her entire life (no lie), who never slept but for a few moments in the swing, who never, ever, ever took a bottle... My baby who could understand everything I said, even at a super early age. The doctor was amazed by her comprehension at 12 months and her ability to follow directions. My baby who would melt into my chest, crawl into my body if she could just to be held closer and tighter. My baby who crawls in our bed every morning just to get her cuddles and share my pillow. My sensitive, fragile little baby.... she's a big girl now, she's in preschool for crying outloud. When did this happen!! Kacey, we love you more than words can say. You're a very, very special little girl.

Happy late birthday Kasey. Man, I want to have parties like hers! I heart the Claim Jumper. We don't have one here. I'll be in Vegas in October and may have to make a stop in for a giant piece of chocolate cake!:)
