Maylie is 3!

My baby is suddenly a little girl! Ahh! I just hate it and love it all at the same time. We had a fun birthday. She pretty much eat and sleeps My Little Pony and Strawberry Shortcake so she had a pony birthday. We decided instead of throwing a huge party like last year we would put the funds to use for balloons and streamers. We took pictures but seriously did not do it justice. So you will just have to take my word that the house was awesomely decorated and May loved it.
In the morning she opened her presents most of it My Little Pony stuff. In this picture she is sporting a new dress that Zach's mom sent her. She had a hard time blowing out her candles in the morning but the practice did her good because she got them later that night.
In the afternoon we picked Zach up at work and went to lunch and Nicklemannia. Her and Zach just love that place. I seriously just don't get it.
Anyway we had a little party Including Pin the cutie mark on the pony (it came with our decor).
I attempted to make a pull string pinata. It was a bust. The kids still had fun though and I think I figured out what I did wrong so next time I can make it work. The hands in the picture are Uncle Nates. He stepped in when the wire that was supposed to hold it up broke...I guess he was just lucky it was a pull string and not a hit with a bat pinata.After games we did presents. May was SO tired I felt kind of bad she didn't show much enthusiasm for what she was opening. Funny story though. Her Aunt Katherine (it was from the whole family but come on now we all knew who was the brains behind the operation) gave her a Strawberry Shortcake movie. I was trying to explain to Maylie who it was from and I think she thought I was saying she needed to give it to her. She was so worried. She started inching behind our TV stand and she hid it and just kept pushing it back farther and farther so it was hidden. And then after cake was over my mom said she had gotten out and kept saying, "Is this mine?" "Can I keep this?" So funny. She also got an easel from my mom and dad which she loves. I think trees everywhere are legging out a sigh of relief since we don't go through a ton of paper everyday for all her drawings. Now she has a white board she can draw then erase.

My favorite part was the cake. Which if it weren't for the super talented Caytee Wankier's help would have been a muddled up mess with a pony on top. It was such a good learning experience. I loved it and Maylie was so excited.
She LOVES singing happy birthday. She has some play cakes that she will always set up for a party and then sing happy birthday to whoever she decides to sing to. So I think when everyone was singing it to her she was ecstatic. She was even singing along. Overall I think she had a fun birthday but hated the party. She is definitely a kiddo that likes the calm and small groups. Next year we may have to find some other fun way to celebrate.
She had her check up she has jumped from the 10th percentile in weight to the 40th. She is getting cut off from her whole milk though both in quantity and in fat so it'll be interesting to see if she stays in the 40th. She screamed the entire time at the doctor's it was so sad.

Anyway I'm so lucky to have her and I am thankful for everyday I get to spend with her. She is such a sweetheart (with a side of stubbornness and she wouldn't be her father's daughter if it weren't so). She is so smart and hilarious I get such a kick out of her. Love you May May!
