Birthday #2

When Humphrey discovered that the Toddler Room at our school did not do a Birthday Celebration like the Early Childhood classes, she decided to have one at home for Magoo.  It kinda makes me laugh, she spent 2 years in the Toddler Class and only after experiencing her own Birthday Celebration did she realize that was her first one at school. 

When I walked into the living room the other day Humphrey and Magoo were each in a chair along with 2 naked baby dolls talking about Magoo's life. 
I mentioned that I have a copy of  On the Day You Were Born and Humphrey immediately requested we read it to Magoo.

A little while later Magoo helped make her birthday cupcakes, she loved pouring the ingredients and mixing them together.

The big day finally arrived and we began the day with balloons and cinnamon rolls for breakfast.  Our first of many renditions of Happy Birthday occurred at this time.

 After a morning at school, a long nap, and Papa's softball game in the evening we made it to unwrapping the present.  She unwraps just like her older sister...all bits of paper off the box before opening the box.

She got a tiny wiffle ball bat (lightweight) a regular mitt & ball so she can play with Humphrey, and a bike helmet. 

Overall a successful day.

  1. Super fun birthday week for her. Adorable big sister for doing a birthday circle. Do they sing, "The earth goes around the sun" in her class? I'm not sure what part of the world you are in. I think it would be fun to make a collection of all the different Montessori birthday songs. In Western WA I've been in several classrooms that sing the same song or a similar variation. From what little I've seen online though classrooms in different states sing different songs. Very belated birthday to your youngest.
