Birthday Girl

Saturday was Brigid's birthday, but because we'd celebrated the occasion with her party last weekend, nobody really remembered what day it was when I finally got her out of bed that morning and brought her downstairs at my in-laws' house, where everyone was gathered.

So after I'd casually mentioned to her that nobody had even wished her a happy birthday, yet, everyone tried to remedy that all at once, and B was greeted with a slightly-louder-than-intended birthday shout from all corners of the room, which scared the living daylights out of her and led to five minutes of crying.

And now my kid is scarred for life.

The end.

(Ok, we didn't really scar her for life. She got over it pretty quickly, actually. But the next morning, my brother-in-law jokingly wished her a happy birthday, and she looked like she was about to start crying all over again. So...maybe we did?)

(I totally snagged these pictures from my BiL's facebook page. He takes much better pictures than I do.)


  1. She is so darn precious...Love the last shot of her and her daddy!

  2. Awww happy late birthday to B! Only don't tell her I said that because I don't want to make her cry. =) She is utter cuteness. I don't know if that's an expression or not. But she is. =)

  3. The last birthday party I went to, the two year old boy cried all through Happy Birthday because it was too much all at once.
