what do you get a two-year-old for her birthday?
Apparently, this (the first four items were specific requests):
an Elmo backpack ("Eh-mo ba-pa") [similar but not identical to L's]
a purple car ("purpo caca") [harder to find than you might think - we went with Hot Wheels]
a Thomas train
a train cake, made by yours truly (thanks for the yellow cake recipe, Smitten Kitchen - I went with a buttercream frosting that I dyed blue)
two of her favorite books from the library
a dinosaur shirt
A few other gifts from relatives (like her cool new trike and a great farm set), but otherwise that was it. If you didn't already know, Lorelei is a girl, but we don't always dress her up like a little fairy princess. And, really, trains and cars and dinosaurs are pretty cool.
Lorelei's dress is from Tea Collection and her snazzy button is from Target. And that's all the unpaid advertising I have for today! :)
