We celebrated with a Fisher Price doctor's kit (lovingly chosen by Andrew), a cozy quilt and Peter Rabbit book (from Mommy & Daddy), a gorgeous afternoon at the park with a few friends and a monkey cake, and lots of hugs and kisses.
Elsbeth has 5 teeth, is pulling up on everything and starting to cruise a bit, adores her big brother, chatters constantly and will say Mama and Dada if she feels like it, and will begin going to the church nursery on Sunday mornings (instead of sitting in the lobby with Mommy and Daddy, as has been our tradition).
Happy birthday, my darling girl! You have brightened our lives and brought us unimaginable joy. We love you more than words can say.
