we started the day with eliza waking us up and asking for a snack. so i got the idea to make pink pancakes for delia's birthday. pancakes are a birthday specialty around here, so it was only fitting.
i told her what today was, and asked if she could say happy birthday to delia.
she refused at first. had other things to talk about, but then turned away from us and said "happy birthday delia!"
i brought out the birthday ring, and the birthday table cloth we've used for both of eliza's birthdays.
eliza wanted to blow the candle out all through breakfast.
daddy left for work and then nana and papa came with balloons. 7, because she is their 7th grandchild.
eliza got so excited for her "2,3,4,5 birthday bloons!" i had to remind her they were delia's.
we walked out to delia's tree.
took some pics, and said happy birthday delia!
as they went higher and higher eliza surprised us all by saying "they going to delia's house!" while looking up.
we've never used that term. we just say she's in heaven, but she just knows.
walking back to the house holding her two balloons she decided she wanted them to blow away too.
i asked her if she was sure because she couldn't get them back, or play with them, and she said yes.
let go of them with a wave and a "bye, bye bloons!"
it was a perfect way to celebrate our little newbean and her beautiful life.
