Eden and Lydia had a great birthday. Nate and I took them to Chick-fil-A for lunch and opened some presents there. I made them Anna and Elsa dresses and we gave them a couple DVDs. They also requested to go mini golfing. They had never been before but had seen it on a show and kept asking to go. So we invited our cousins and hit the green. Let's just say the coordination left much to be desired, but they had so much fun! Afterwards we had cake and ice cream. They were very specific about what kind of cakes they wanted so I had to make two separate ones for the first time. Eden requested a "purple chocolate cake with purple finkles (sprinkles)" and Lydia wanted a "strawberry pink cake."

Lydia is such a sweet little girl. She loves to help me with Adeline and be a little mother. Even though Eden is more of the "leader" Lydia is more of the "mother." Every morning she gets herself dressed and then picks some matching clothes for Eden to wear and lays them out on the floor for her. She enjoys learning and is constantly repeating the nursery rhymes and songs she knows. I think she'll have a beautiful singing voice like her Aunt Kaley. She's more timid when it comes to things outside her comfort zone. For instance, if we go to a new park and there is a tricky ladder, she prefers to watch Eden go first before trying it herself. But once she convinces herself to try something, she's just as adventurous as her sister. She loves playing with her baby and setting up pretend picnics.
