To our dearest Katie... It is impossible to imagine that it was only 4 short years ago that you came into our lives. You are the most loving and gentle natured little girl. You are also the epitome of the most princessey and girlie girl I know. You love dressing up, always asking for your "skirt connected to the shirt", preferring dresses over pants (much to the chagrin of jeans loving daddy) You are outspoken on your own opinions, yet have the maturity beyond your years of saying the right things at the right time. You still need the security of your 'Barney bu bu' to fall asleep, but can independently pack your camping over night bag without our assistance. You are meticulous and exact in what you want. You will also not budge once you've set your mind onto something. We are often amazed by how conscientious you can be, packing up your toys after playing with them and even compartmentalizing the smaller items into their own boxes).
We love you our littlest girl... :) mummy & daddy
Lucky girl had 2 birthday parties! The 1st one, coinciding with the Childrens' day celebrations, was with all her friends in school. Here's the happy little girl, who kept telling everybody - no, i'm not 4 yet! my birthday is on Sunday.... she was so super thrilled with the princess cake, which she has specified a loooong time ago, and which i spent the day before stressfully constructing out of 2 readymade round cakes (6" + 8") and lots of buttercream frosting! :) The look on K's face when she first saw it made it all worthwhile!!
We all went to celebrate her bday with her in school as usual.
Blowing out her candles all by her self..
The princess cake :)
Check out the gleeful expressions on their faces! Soooo cute!
The weekend started with another birthday party for her, this time, for the family and close friends.
Princess goodie bags.
K wanted all the girlie girlie things, so we had manicures, pedicures and glitter tattoos
Happy girl with the glitter tattoo
The 2nd cake we had for her birthday was totally outsourced (read: mummy can't take another stressful night of baking!!) Cupcakes were from Artisan Sweets, and I bought the princess cupcake stand.... (which came with all the cupcake toppers)Checking out the cupcake and making dibs on the ones they wanted to eat first!
Blowing out the candles with help from jie jie.
Of course, the best part of the party - opening up the pressies!!! :) She loved all the pressies (which she smartly chose beforehand by getting mummy to put up a birthday registry on FB - see how organise she is!) A big huge thank you for all the little friends, cousins, aunties, uncles and grandparents who turned up and made it such a special day for her!! :)
