Mila is 3!

Our baby girl turned 3 two weeks ago! We are so very proud of the little lady that she is becoming. We celebrated her big day by sending cupcakes and princess party decor to her school the day before and by having a small gathering at our house on her birthday.

Along with being proud of my daughter I must toot my horn and admit that I am quite pleased with myself as well. I took on the exciting task of baking her cupcakes for school and her cake for her birthday gathering. This was my first time baking cakes and making icing from scratch. Both creations turned out pretty well. Give me a few years; I’ll be that gorgeous, successful mom that bakes wonderfully. Now off for a run I go 2 cupcakes and 1 slice of cake later.

I think that Mila really enjoyed her parties! She’s asked me, on at least 4 different occasions, will she have another one tomorrow. She has even gone as far as to request a Doc Mcstuffins’ themed party. My daughter is already growing up too quickly, 1 party a year is all that I can stand.

  1. Just wanted to add our congratulations to the birthday girl! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MILA! Enjoy being a loving big sister to those brothers of yours! And most important…love Jesus with all of your heart 🙂 (PS. The photo of Benjamin being held is priceless! Well done, Aisha, starting your career of baking themed birthday cakes for your kiddos. They will remember these special touches forever.) Let us know when you plan to come our way again. Blessings. Esther Ruth and Cam
