Two birthdays were celebrated this week. Our very first double digit dill daughter, Divine, turned 10!
She asked to skip the breakfast-in-bed tradition…she didn't want to be late for school. Divine likes routine and punctuality.
And her birthday cake request was chocolate chocolate chip mint cookies. No cake this round.She asked for a pogo stick for her gift. Ever since Divine was little, she hasn't cared too much for toys. We thought buying toys was just a waste of money until we had more kids who actually played with them. Divine prefers to do and make. Hmm. Like someone else I know.
She was thrilled. And yes, those giant calendar pages come in handy for over-sized gift wrapping ;)
Olive put in her breakfast request the night before, and we got to school on time.Her only birthday dinner requests were artichokes, Ferrero Rochet Chocolates and then crème brûlée for dessert. My little gourmand.
I found this sweet little necklace for her here. She's our little baker.One of Olive's endearing qualities is that she gets absolutely ecstatic about anything given to her. Pearl made her a fabric snake and Divine gave her a clay turtle she made at school. Loved them both.
We named Olive with the symbolism of the Olive tree, or peace. She truly is a happy soul which brings peace to our family.
We are blessed to have her part of this Dill stew chaos.
By the end of the second birthday celebration I thought this baby was going to come. I was tired, the baby was low, and I was having lots of abdominal cramping. But then I awoke the next morning…still pregnant. Again. And again. Of course having a September baby after all these August birthdays wouldn't be such a bad thing. In a few years.
