Opening the purple butterfly boots sent by a set of grandparents. Her majesty is pleased!
Then one of the boots fell on Daddy’s foot, and that was even better!
Daddy helps put the new boots on.
These boots are made for stomping!
Once the party wound down, Sydney took her dress off (she’s getting better, but she’s still not a huge fan of the whole clothing thing) — but she kept the purple butterfly boots on.
Checking out the boots!
Now, not all the grown-ups who wanted to be there could attend Sydney’s birthday party, so the next day we had another birthday party for Sydney. With more presents to open. Some people really live the good life, don’t they?
The presents includied a horse head, seen above. (It also comes with hoofs, which make clip-clopping sounds when Sydney walks in them.). And a Backyardigans pirate ship, which Sydney wanted to play with immediately, not understanding that the grown-ups around her just wanted her to open more presents.
This year was a real milestone, by the way, in that this is the first present-opening occasion in which Sydney has been more interested in the presents than in the opportunity to rip wrapping paper off parcels.
