Well, almost. Her birthday is right around the corner, but we decided to celebrate a little early when Grandma and Grandpa were visiting over the weekend. We also decided to keep it simple and just do a family celebration this year.
A couple weeks ago, I asked her what kind of cake she wanted, and she said, "Purple! With purple frosting! And strawberries!" I checked in with her a couple times in the days leading up to the celebration, and she gave the same answer every time. So, a purple cake with purple frosting and strawberries on top it was! Fortunately from all of my experiments in making a rainbow cake with natural food dyes, I knew exactly how to make a purple cake: blackberries.
It's hard to believe she's (almost) three already. She's definitely not a baby anymore, which is a bit bittersweet. On the one hand, you kind of wish they could stay little forever, but on the other, watching your children grow up is such an amazing thing, and growing up she certainly is! Seriously, look at this big girl!! Next thing I know she'll be asking to borrow the car. Sigh.
