Fae’s second birthday was as magical as I could make it. I sung “the birthday song” to her throughout the day, we played and read stories, and I just tried to focus all of my attention on her.
My husband and I had prepared a little celebration for our daughter in the evening. She wore her new birthday crown that I made her, we lit the candles in her birthday ring, and she opened her carefully chosen gifts while the sun began to set.
She was very interested in her birthday ring, and especially liked the candles and crystals.
We got her some beautiful wooden toys: an Ostheimer fawn, a set of trees, a set of mushrooms, a rainbow stacker, and a wave stacker. And we also got her an Elsa Beskow book, and a picture book on animal families.
I made her a doll sling and ordered her a custom-made Waldorf doll. She said “doll” before she opened the package. We figure she must either be bright, knowing that a doll would go with the sling, or she’s a little psychic. I think she’s both bright and psychic.
She was so happy to see her new Waldorf doll. It was a lovely day to turn two.
