Last week Caprice, aka Cappi, turned 6 years old! She had been counting down the days for at least half a year! “How many days to my birthday??” then five minutes later “Can we count the days to my birthday?”.
So cute!! But a lot of pressure to get it right and make the day as amazing as she has dreamt of.
She had asked for a Pancake cake, so Micke and Margaux made her this one with whipped cream and bananas (her favourites) and a banana smoothie.
Then came all the gifts. In the Bag-all gift bags of course!We have a bunch of bags that we give back and forth to each other whenever it is someones birthday, mother’s day or Christmas. In my last blogpost I wrote about Ingela P Arrhenius exhibit here in New York. Ingela has made these lovely patterns for Bag-all’s Children’s Collection. Honestly these are my favourite bags of att the gift bags.
Cappi is such a character and ever since she was a little baby people just go nuts over her! Micke often says that it is as if she connects invisible strings between herself and other people. She is alway herself completely. Doing her own thing and not worrying about what anyone else might think.
There was a period when she wore this hat to school every day – and slept in it.
The she had a period when she wore these black round glasses – E V E R Y day!
She even slept in them!
She has a thing for putting things on her head!
She loves to play cat with her sisters!
She often wears her favourite rain coat although there is no rain.
She likes to watch Netflix standing on her head.
Her older sister Margaux love to “style” them both in same outfits
Or doing the same thing as mom!
She loves sweeping our rooftop!
She loves Coney Island more than anything!
She is also a very good cook!
And when she is in the water her smile goes from ear to ear!
Getting muddy is fun! Getting it off, not so much…
Museum trips is another favourite!
She loves our cat Ping!
She adores her dad!!
She loves hotdogs!
Picnics in the park!
Getting a hug from Celeste!
We are so blessed to have this special little person in our lives and we love her more than anything!
