This little goober woober turned 4 yesterday. She has always, always been a ray of sunshine. Sometime sunshine is a little hot and a little annoying and down right overwhelming, but it's also cozy warm and lots of fun. And delightful.
A snuggle bum from the very beginning, each night these days Waverley asks the tucker-inner, whether it's Brian or me, "Sweep wiff me for a widdow bit?"
(Pardon me while I get a box of kleenex. MAN, the emotions! The sweet memories. I... *sniff*...*sigh*)
Remember from two or so posts ago -Waverley and her "hands in the air" thing? Ah-HA! I found the first image we have of her starting her signature photo move!
Waverley woke up, opened presents and she and I headed out for an adventure to pick out her birthday cupcakes. Galaxy Bakery in Georgetown is fabulous -and perfectly quiet at 8:45am.
She chose chocolate (it's in her genes) -she only eats the icing, anyway, and those chocolate cupcakes (bottom row) had an awesome tower of sugary, frosting-filled heaven.
Next, we headed home, somehow managed to get everyone in the car to begin the day's adventures.......aaaaaaaaannnnnnd:
I unwittingly drained the car battery.
Miffed husband. Impatient kids. Silly me.
Hey, I only had my phone charging. And a DVD playing for the kids. And my seat warmed maxed out. And the air going. For 20 minutes or so...
Well, thanks to a man with skillz, we were off to the new Austin Aquarium -our first destination. Uncle Bear got us a family pass and -I admit- we were ALL excited to check it out.
(The kids have been planning their return visit and inform us every 2 hours that it's time to go back there.)
We then headed to MiMa and Boppa's for a birthday bash. There are 15 people on Brian's side (okay, okay -not 15, but it seems like the majority) who have January birthdays, so it's a full on celebration! Both MiMa and Boppa celebrate their birthdays this month. We're also expecting a new girl cousin in a few days!
We had SO much fun (those capitals aren't big enough) getting to be with our family as we celebrated Waverley. I am extremely thankful for the love we are surrounded by -both near and far- and the love that our children will grow up experiencing. That is the best gift. Ever.
And, by the way, we now have cables in the car permanently. Thankyouverymuch.
