Vala's 4th Birthday

Last Friday saw my little girl turn 4 years old and the lucky girl got to celebrate all week long.

First off we had her Paw Patrol themed birthday party the weekend before with all her family on her dads side. Her nanna did all of the planning for us which was a huge weight off our shoulders. She had a blast organising it too. She said she hadn't planned a themed party in years and had so much fun creating pup themed fun. We had 'Pupcorn', 'Rocky Road', 'Cheese Ruffs', and hot dogs to eat. Played Paw Patrol themed games and did plenty of dancing and laughing. Vala had the best time and never stopped smiling and laughing the whole time. Her aunt made her bithday cake and not only was it amazing to look at but it tasted incredible. I couldn't resist a slice despite my gestational diabetes. The whole day was a huge success and it meant so much to Jordan and I to see Vala have a day that was all about her before the arrival of her brother.

Her actual birthday felt a lot more normal. Like it was almost just an ordinary day. She still attended nursery so most of the day was routine as usual. With the exception of a skype call with my parents back home in Australia and several present opening sittings. Jordan had to leave for work at 6.30am so was gone before Vala woke. I didnt want her to wait all day to open her presents so I split them. She opened some before nursery and the rest once Jordan came home. After that we paid Jordan's parents a visit where Vala got to open even more presents! We had dinner, she was spoiled and of course, there was more cake! It was nice but not as amazing as the cake from her party.

All in all she had a great week, full of wonderful memories. I can't put into words how much it meant to me to see her so happy. Everything has been so hectic and stressful as we prepare for Flynn's arrival that I'm really glad she got to be the center of attention for a while.

Until next time,
