Yesterday was a milestone. Dax turned three years old and getting prettier and prettier each day. She was so happy days before her birthday because of primarily her cake which she was a part of when we ordered it. Secondly, it was her first real birthday party since her last two birthdays were spent when she has no inkling what's happening all around her. And while we did not invite a single person for her birthday, I decided to splurge a little more this time just for the heck of it. And so she the house was transformed into a party house. We decorated it with balloons and a Dora inspired banner with her name on it. Although she cant read, she knows her name when she sees one. Oh well, she can recognize two letter words as of late. Since she has no friends from our neighbors and no classmates to invite because she doesnt go to school yet, Ate Bob invited her classmate which happens to live three houses away from us. Talk about convenience. And so Dax has a visitor (oh well visitors because her classmate Claire brought along her mom, her tita and her sister). Which is a good thing because there were a lot of food. One and only visitor. Oh well not one because I invited my brother and her family anyway. And since she has one visitor, she got a gift too. Good thing we were able to buy another gift to her at the insistence of Ate Bob a day before the reason why she got two. Which by the way ended up with Ate Bob and her friend playing with the gift after they opened it.
Here's a snapshot of Baby Dax with her birthday cake.
All in all, she enjoyed it. After we call it a night, I asked Baby Dax if she enjoyed her party and the answer was a resounding yes. She even said it was her best party ever. Hahaha. Not bad for a 3 year old eh.
So what was the food, here's the picture minus the tacos and vanilla ice cream because it wasnt done yet when I took the picture.
And here's the picture of Baby Dax visitors. Ate Bob, Claire, Frances and Baby Dax.

Happy kids make happy parents. To Baby Dax, Papa and Mama love you now and beyond. You make us smile and you give us comfort all the time. It never fails. If I could only bring you along in my work I will do it just to know that you are safe all the time.
Til your next birthday.
