Happy Birthday Pineapple! You're THREE!!
Pineapple had a very Happy Birthday celebration!

She is so proud of putting up her three fingers when you ask how old she is.

Her big brother Ender made her a special birthday crown, which she loved of course.

We had strawberry and chocolate cake with ice cream. We had a number 3 candle, but she REALLY wanted to use the Mcdonalds candle she found.

Then she opened her presents. They were bigger than her!

The first gift was from her Grandma (a pretend granny purse- it was perfect for her!)

The second gift was from Margaret.

She sent this bear to Pineapple a year ago, but I have been saving it for the day I felt she was old enough to really appreciate it. It is the kind where you can stuff the bear yourself and insert a little star wish inside, then you can dress the bear up in princess clothes and a hat and wand and everything! She LOVED it!! It was perfect to ride on her pretend horse.

Thank you again Margaret!

The last gift was this. We had purchased this as a Christmas gift, but felt she had too many things, so we saved it for her birthday.

Nothing like being able to ride a bike when it is snowing outside- and it is!

She was so excited/wound up with all of her gifts last night (We celebrated a day early) that she would not go to sleep.
We had to put her to bed 5 times!

Happy Birthday Pineapple!

I can't believe it's only been a year since she's been home with you... so much has happened in that year it makes it seem longer. And she looks so much bigger and so so happy! I wish you all the best!

Happy Birthday, Princess Piney! And I won't be showing this post to my daughter because the combination of the crown, purse, princess bear, AND pony...well, that would probably cause her head to explode.

Every picture captures what an amazing personality Pineapple has. I just can't get over how spunky she really reminds me of CQ!

Happy Birthday Pineapple.
CQ would LOVE that are sooo lucky!

Happy Birthday, that kid is too too cute!

is her name really pineapple or is that just a nickname u gave to her?

Blogger Maggie said...
Oh, for heaven's sakes, "adoptive parents." Of course it's a blog nickname. Many people use nicknames for their kids on blogs as a privacy/safety thing.
