It was a great day and I think Sophie enjoyed every minute of it. I wanted to do something special with Sophie during the day so I thought it would be fun to take her to Build A Bear. I think she had a great time. She chose to make a kitty and dressed it as The Little Mermaid and named it 'Ariel.' It has become her pal since we left the store.
Sophie thought it was a bit scary when her kitty was getting her stuffing. It was kind of loud and she thought it better to stand back and cover her ears. Too cute and silly!
Sophie loved giving her kitty a bath. She made sure she was all clean and got a good brushing.
There is Sophie J with her treasured 'Ariel' kitty!
After we visited Build A Bear, we went home and waited for the party to start. Sophie chose to have a Tinkerbelle party this year. It was fun, because it was the first time that she has requested some sort of theme for her big day. Grandmas and Grandpas came over, we ate pizza, and opened presents. Sophie was totally into opening her gifts this year. She barely noticed what was inside each one before she was on to the next.
Great Grandma Moss gave Sophie some musical instruments. They were a hit. We had to play them and sing "Happy Birthday" a million times.
Sophie got lots of Princess Dolls and My Little Pony's. Two of her most favorite things right now! What a lucky girl.
Here is Sophie with her Tinkerbelle cake that she picked out herself. She had been looking forward to it for weeks.
Blowing out the candles after making a wish. It took her a couple of tries, but she did it!
Sophie also got lots of art supplies and coloring books. She spent most of the night sitting at the kitchen table coloring.
It was a great day and I know that Sophie is so grateful for all of the gifts and the time that everyone took to come celebrate this special day with her. Love you Sophie!
