To make the day special, Rich took off work and Aunt Lulu and Pop-Pop drove down to celebrate! We all went to see Horton Hears a Who -- Mae's first movie theater experience. At first, we weren't sure she was ready for the movies or for watching them in public but in the weeks leading up to her birthday, Mae had been getting very excited at the Horton trailers so we thought we'd give it a try. We are pleased to report that she LOVED the movie and we all survived the movie. Luckily, there were only 6 other people there when we saw it.
PS -- Mae loves all of her presents -- but there were so many, that we are slowly getting to "know" each one to keep from being overwhelmed! Many, many thanks for all the great and thoughtful gifts and cards! She especially loved the personalized wrapping paper from Alex and his mommy, Natasha!

By "accident," Omi used a trick candle -- one that kept relighting! Poor Rich kept blowing out the candle, and blowing out the candle, and blowing out the candle... We finally doused it with water.

We also went out to the beach and played in the sand. The water was still a little too cold to get in, but Mae and Kirsten still wanted to test the water (notice how Kirsten and baby are really starting to show!).

I am trying to take comfort in the notion that this is normal and happens to everyone. Or I am just lousy at bedtime routines. Come to think of it, she kind of fusses when I put her down for a nap, too. Oh, well. Enjoy it now, Kid, because some day you'll be craving those naps!
