Mariah is Three!

Wait, wasn't it just like not that long ago that I was typing "Mariah is Two!" ??

Mariah was VERY excited about her birthday. She was telling everyone everywhere for the past few months, "Hi my name's Riah. I am 2 and a half and on Otober for-eff (fourth) it is my bert-day and I will be FREE (three) and den my daddy will BA-TIZE ME!!" then we have to remind her every time that she will get baptized when she's 8....she's still working out some of the details.
(if I had more time right now I'd go through and actually edit these pics...maybe later...)

So, leading up to her birthday, Mariah had a very specific vision for her birthday party. She started talking about it more and more as the big date approached. She wanted to eat oatmeal with her friends (most important thing) and put things in it (also important) and then have birthday cake (peripheral to the oatmeal, but still necessary) and party hats (obviously). Oatmeal with friends, we can do this. So we invited all her buddies over for a birthday breakfast on Saturday morning. We had a huge pot of oatmeal, with little bowls of berries, walnuts, shredded coconut, dried cranberries, spiced pumpkin seeds, and brown sugar and maple syrup to mix in. I also made mini veggie egg muffins, strawberries with honey yogurt, we had a big bowl of bagels from our favorite bagel shop. I was hoping this is what she had been envisioning.  We also made a big carrot cake (I've made it for her birthday for the past years also) and she made her very own smaller cake all by herself too and put whatever she wanted in it and we baked it. It was weird but she ate it so whatever.

Mariah's personal special blend cake. You almost can't tell it includes yogurt, oats, strawberries, pineapple, green peas, coconut oil, cinnamon, egg, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, maple syrup, blueberries, carrots, and almond milk.


 Still working on getting the three fingers up!

Eden takes 3 naps a day so she was in and out for the party fun, but she liked wearing the hat!


  1. It sounds like the perfectly planned Mariah party!! She is full of life and ideas of her own. I love the pics of her licking the frosting and trying to make 3 on her fingers. So glad adorable Eden made an appearance at the party too. Before you know it she will be one!!

  2. Just looking through all these again!! Can't believe how big she is now.
