This weekend, our sweetest Eloise Ruby turned three! As with every birthday, we are equal parts happy & sad, celebrating their little milestones while peeking back at photos from when they were born is always a recipe for tears.
Eloise loves her baby dolls more than anything, so when we asked her what kind of birthday party she wanted, it was no surprise that she said babies & pancakes. So I put together a little baby doll brunch, with pancakes on demand (thanks to chef daddy & grandpa who manned the kitchen all morning!) and each of her little friends bringing their baby dolls over. She loves blueberries (and anything blue really) so we did some blueberry yogurt parfaits (and blue cupcakes that we saved for later), made her a cake out of waffles & had her favorite cereal for snacking. I borrowed a few baby doll high chairs so each of the girls had a spot to put their babies to feed them as well, it was the cutest little set up, complete with OH BABY balloons that she loved!!
She wanted to make sure that we also wished her babies happy birthday, because of course they all had to share the big day with her, and she was over the moon excited about all of the new baby clothes (and even matching pajamas for her!) that she got to dress them all up. This is such a fun age and their excitement is contagious, we loved celebrating our Ellie girl!!
Eloise, you bring so much love & laughter to our family. We love listening to you tell stories & use your beautiful imagination, your smile has lit up the room since the day you were born. We love you more than words can say, happy birthday sweet baby girl.
