We held the party on the thirteenth, and had games, food, butterfly decorations, crafts, presents, and LOTS of fun. The birthday girl hardly stopped smiling.

Laina couldn't quite figure out how to do three fingers...

Thank you, Nona, for the birthday dress!
Let the party begin!
throwing butterfly beanbags into the center of the flower (beanbags: my mom. flower: Micah. How does anyone throw a party without family?)
two kinds of butterfly crafts
The Nelsons, the Burtons, Nan, Nona, Haylee, and the Whatleys came to celebrate.
Cupcake time! Laina requested purple cupcakes (with very specific wrappers), and sprinkles. LOVE that face!
Kelly: Laina, how old are you today?
Laina: Um...let me check. Mama, how old is me?
Me: You're three.
Laina, turning to Kelly: I'm three!
The next day, Sunday, made it official. She's three. Love that girl so much.
