Happy Birthday Princess!

We celebrated Maya's birthday opening presents in the morning, and having cake in the evening.

During the days, with the 2 bigger kids at school, the little ones are having a chance to bond. They are so cute together- they definitely fight and take things constantly from each other, but they also giggle and play silly games and somehow communicate. Now granted they also like to have tantrums at the same time, but the other day for a half an hour I had respite from the stereo tantrums while the 2 of them played cars together. Ricky kept telling Maya long soliloquies in Sidaminya and Maya just kept saying patiently "I don't know what you mean. I don't understand you."

Ricky really likes pasta! Watching him enjoy pasta is better than eating it myself!

Maya helped me make her chocolate cake, and got to lick the spoon. A sweet end to a happy birthday.
