Niamh had two birthday parties this year. Her birthday was on October 20th. She picked out a little strawberry shortcake and we had a little family party. Then the following Sunday we had a big party with all the cousins and other family. Niamh wanted a Tangled/Rapunzel cake. I had high hopes doing a fondant cake, but after a nightmare and a mess, I ended up just frosting it with chocolate cream cheese frosting. It turned out fine. Niamh had a great 3rd birthday. I can't believe my baby girl is now 3 years old. She is so smart and beautiful. She knows her mind and isn't afraid to speak it. The other day I asked her when she was going to start using the potty and her reply was, "let's not talk about that right now." There you have it. She will do it when she is ready, so I guess I must be patient. She is the sweetest girl and can melt your heart with one look. We love our Niamhy and are so happy she is part of our family.
