I have to agree with Heather and LT, being an aunt is the best gig there is. MP is three today! I just spoke with her to wish her a happy birthday and see how her day was going. This is the first year she really knows that it's her birthday. Here is a little bit of our conversation:
Me: Happy Birthday, MP. Are you having a good birthday?
Me: chuckle, chuckle, why not?
MP: I didn't get any cake...only muffins.
cracks me up! Don't worry, the Princess Party is scheduled for Saturday, and I am sure she will get her fill of cake. She is just like her aunt. It's not a celebration without dessert!
Here are her Christmas pics from this year and the past two. She looks so grown up!
