A Princess Birthday

I was a very girly girl who grew up, married her prince, and had two very boyish boys. Now don't get me wrong; I'm happy that my boys are into cars, sports, and all things boy. But when the ultrasound technician reported to me that my third baby would be a girl, my mind filled visions of dresses, pink, and dolls. Shortly after that it struck me, that my daughter would have two brothers; and I realized that I my sweet one might end up as quite the tomboy. To my delight (no offense to tomboys), besides the fact that my girlie can produce a pretty decent gun shot sound, I have one seriously girly little lady on my hands. And as her third birthday approached, Adriana had very set ideas on what it would look like. She wanted a princess birthday, more specifically a Cinderella birthday. So a princess birthday we gave her. She counted down the day for months, and I asked her wishes for many details of the day:
What color decorations? Pink.
What color cake? Pink.
What flavor of ice cream? Pink.
What flavor of cake? Chocolate. (That's my girl!)

We ended the day by playing "Pretty, Pretty Princess" with Momma, Aunt Nanny, and Grammy:
And now my princess is three.
