Happy (early) Birthday Maggie.

Our big family birthday celebration for Maggie was Saturday and she was a little overwhelmed and still sick from a nasty cold.  Her face says it all in this picture.  She had no clue why we were all looking at her and singing.  We blew out her candes for her and tried to get her to get messy with her cupcake.  Maggie ate a little of her sprinkles, but no icing.  She even gagged a little when I put some in her mouth.  Oh well.  Maybe she'll get the hang of it all by her third birthday.
Her big present from us was a kitchen play set.  Honestly, I was not sure how she would react to it.  (Maggie is still delayed in some of her pretend play skills).  But, to my suprise, she knew exactly what to do !  She opens the cabinets,stirs the pots, and is so busy with her kitchen.

  She loves it !!! 
She also got a shopping cart from her grandma and grandpa.  She pushed that cart around the house for hours !  Maggie is such a little busy girl cooking and shopping.
( I had a hard time getting some good pictures of her cute smile on her birthday, she's just so busy and fast.  Most of the pictures I took are of her back because she would just take off running in the other direction)

She also got her first dress up clothes, a Magna-Doodle, clothes, coloring books, markers and crayons, blocks and this cute little desk.  Finally, a place of her own to sit and color during school time. She is quite the little student in her new desk.
This was Maggie last night.  W o r n O u t. 

Happy Birthday Maggie ! It is hard to believe you are already two years old. You are the sweetest little girl.  Our hearts melt when we look at you and you are such a blessing to our family.  We can't imagine life without you. It breaks our heart that you had no one to celebrate your first birthday with.  But, what Joy it is now !  You had all your cousins,aunts and uncles,Grandma and Grandpa,Ninny and Pappa, your brothers and YOUR mommy and daddy - quite a lot of people to celebrate YOU !  Hang on, we will celebrate again at home on October 29th, the day you were born in Gaozhou City,China.
  We love you Maggie Caroline,
Mommy and Daddy
