Our Lauren Jane turned 2!
and invited her best friend "Giraffe" . . . and a few of her other close friends (and family) to join us for a day filled with birthday fun!
~ meet Lauren's best-friend, "Giraffe" ~
~ and close friends "Froggie" and "Monkey" ~
~ buttermilk pancakes with mini chocolate chips ~
topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with confetti
Our youngest little lady is just that . . . little . . . and petite.
She's our doll baby . . . a daddy's girl.
Lauren Jane spends the majority of her days keeping up with her 3 year old brother and 5 year old sister! And she does a great job at it too!
She started asking "Why?" a few weeks ago . . . and I shake my head & giggle every time she asks me! Can she really be entering the "why" phase already!?
We adore her sweet smile . . . big, long, warm hugs . . . and playfulness.
And her 2nd birthday was also celebrated with beautiful, bright colors!
Take a close look at the cupcake centerpiece!
It's a piece of art! Thanks, Emily!
I dressed up the cupcake centerpiece with pink paper medallions and white hydrangeas.
So bright and happy!

Lauren's birthday cake was inspired by a Polka Dot Cake I saw on Pinterest,

Our night ended with lots of gifts, fun, and laughter!
Happy Birthday, my sweet baby girl!
