celebrating Aria

UncategorizedOlivia Stewart1 Comment

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Aria who turned 2 in May. Two months later her mom finally got around to blogging about it. In her defense she started the post much sooner but couldn't get all the pictures to be centered. Frustrated she saved the draft and decided to try again later. Two months passed and I, I mean she, still couldn't fix the pictures but decided it didn't really matter.  She published the post as-is so she could get back to living happily ever after.  The end.

On May 20th my sweet Aria turned two.  I can barely believe how quickly time flies.  To celebrate we invited a small group of friends and family over to play.

Both of my sisters and their kids were able to come.  It was nice to have a little cousin time before all of the other guests arrived.

Of course Baba was a huge hit with her grandkids!

Joel and I got Aria this play kitchen for her birthday.  I felt like we reached a major milestone as parents when we stayed up late putting it together.  I think it took Joel 4 hours!  I absolutely adore it and so does Aria.  Thanks again love!

It was so sweet getting to see Aria and her friends playing with the kitchen during the party.

The kids were able to decorate their own sugar cookies

and play grocery store downstairs.

I loved watching them all shop and then wait in line at the register. It was obvious that they have had practice waiting patiently in line at the grocery store with their parents before.

Then they would go and put all of the food back and start over again.

Aria you make everyday an adventure.  It is such a blessing to be the one who gets to help you learn and grow.  You are the sweetest presence in my life. You bring joy to so many people.  I can't even begin to tell you how much I love you.  I am so glad you were born.  Happy Birthday little one!
