Scary I know.
Lani, Eli and Lilly wanted to surprise Sabi with her own “on her actual birthday” cake, even though her party will be at the end of November with Eli’s. I let them do the whole thing themselves, right down to finding the ingredients at the supermarket. It was so funny watching them try and find butter, they found the yogurts and cheeses but the butter was in an extra cold isle that wasn’t around the outside, Lilly desperately wanted to find it and stood staring at the cheese declaring with annoyance that “All this stuff comes out of a cow and butter does too so it should be here, why would you not put cow stuff with the other cow stuff.” Oh to be six and know everything again.
The cake is a T.A.R.D.I.S by the way and Sabi being the little Who fan, geek girl that she is was suitably impressed.
Sabi totally enjoyed the whole traditional birthday cake performance and has not stopped singing “happy birthcake to you” since.
When her Grandparents gave her the first present I told the other kids to stay back and let her open them herself to which she replied “No, Help me!” I think she likes being the baby.
She was a little confused when she started to open the present I made for her.
But she was overcome with bouncing excitement when she realized it was her very own Doctor Who.
Then finally some more dolls house furniture, she’s a huge fan of very small tables and chairs.
There was a moment of sadness when she realized her presents didn’t work brilliantly together but that was short lived when I promised to make a Doctor size chair. Cheeky little thing added “and de Doctor ahhh-dis too” that’s “Can you please make a Tardis too mummy” for those who don’t speak Sabi.
We couldn’t stop laughing at how excited she was by her Doctor Who doll, she shook all over and couldn’t stop bouncing hence the blur. She talked to him, sang to him…..
…she made him a bed….
…and took him shopping….
…and found him a pet tiger she named Amy (I think I know what to make for Christmas).
But you really should have seen the ultimate excitement when Lani found a Doctor sized chair. I think it will be pretty hard to top this birthday, any more happiness and this kid would have exploded.
