While her birthday was actually 10 days ago, here is a picture that shows the new sparkles in her ears. She is still missing those two front teeth that she pulled out in December! No signs that the replacements are going to arrive any time soon! She still spends lots of time admiring her pierced ears in any mirror she can find.
Here's a picture of her birthday cake. She requested a butterfly cake this year, so of course I obliged. I always make her cake at home. I've done Elmo, a princess castle, a pony, hearts, and now the butterfly. I think this one is my favorite so far. Gloria was thrilled with it, which makes this momma feel good. :)
