Happy 3rd birthday, Solace!

4 Jan

Goodness gracious. I have a three-year old. A 3-year-old!! All week-long Sol has been telling people “my birthday’s comin’ up!” Adorable. Then when asked how old she’s going to be, she holds up 3 fingers and says “January 1st!” Haha.

At 3 years old, Solace is a sassy, sweet, dramatic, loving, talkative, artsy gal. Her favorite things: singing, having her hair in braids, dancing, reading, hoarding things, listening to music, playing pretend, Frozen, and playing with her friends. She would wear a dress every day. She still loves her paci (therefore she loves sleeping so I think I am winning) and is in a size 4t. She does not have a favorite food unless z-bars from Costco count. She loves black coffee. Not kidding!

On her day, we went to breakfast at Shakabrah. Our waitress, Laura, (who is so sweet and loves our kids) put a candle on Sol’s pancake!

The rest of the day was pretty chill. We were going to go to zoo lights that evening but I twisted my ankle and couldn’t walk for very long. Plus, it was so cold outside. The girls danced and read all day.


For Sol’s birthday we (Nick and I and both grandparents plus a few aunts and uncles) got her a canvas teepee from Land of Nod. I was so so excited to give it to her! She wasn’t too keen on it at first. In fact, she refused to go inside for over an hour! But now, she loves it.


We had a birthday party for her on Saturday. We invited all the little girl friends she talks about all the time. We had cake, cocoa, and popcorn! They all pretty much ran rampant the whole hour and a half. Sol was so jacked up on sugar, I think she was hallucinating. That will not be happening again for a long, long time (if ever!). Isn’t the cake from Corina Bakery just darling?

Do you like how we can’t spell? ^ Come on, this was done in a rush 10 min before people walked in the door! Haha.

Everyone singing Happy Birthday to Solace! She just loves this part.

Happy birthday, Sol-baby! We love you the most!

    OH I wish I could have been there. The pictures were so cute and Solace looked like she had a ball. I love the little sassy-pants<3
