Today I took off work so Stella and I could have a Mommy-Daughter day. I wanted to do something special with her for her birthday, but also because soon I won't have the one-on-one time with her anymore. It's hard to write that out because it really breaks my heart. I know that I will love Vivian just as much as I love Stella, but Stella and I are so close and I can't fathom our relationship changing. But we had such a great day together. We went to breakfast with Daddy this morning, then we went to the library. Then we headed out to Build a Bear. That was a lot of fun, she picked out a pink Disney princesses bear. Then she picked out a Cinderella dress and glass slippers. She decided to name it Cinderella.
From there we went to The Cheesecake Factory for lunch. That was a good time, the food was very good. We just hung out and had a good time. She got a little ice cream sundae with a candle and they sang her happy birthday. I got a little emotional about the day when she was eating her sundae, then The Best Day by Taylor Swift came on in the restaurant. It has double meaning because it was a song I used in a video I made for Aunt LuAnn/Erin. And it really symbolized their relationship to me. But also, it's about a daughter and a mom having the best day together...That's about all I have to say about that.
Tonight after dinner she wanted to play with her "Do-si-do"/Playdoh. Which she got a 24 pack of for her birthday. The box has different pictures on it of things you can make. She was really into it, telling me which colors she needed to make certain things. First she wanted to make the watermelon, then she wanted to do the caterpillar. But she was just really meticulous about which she needed and kept referencing the photos to make sure it was right. She did a great job. I love her SO!
