3 Years Old and Waffles to Boot!

We celebrated Vivian's third birthday last weekend at Petite Abeille, one of our favorite brunch spots in the city. It seemed fitting, as the birthday girl is a huge fan of waffles and theirs are some of the best around. But before I get to that -- and make myself hungry at the same time -- a few words on Miss Vivian Ella.

Like every other parent who waxes nostalgic on their child's birthday, I have to fall in line... I really don't know how Vivian is three years old! Maybe it's because she's my baby (okay, that's exactly why), but I have to admit I'm struggling a bit here. And now that Vivian is in preschool four days a week, she seems to be growing daily before my eyes. Some of it is quite wonderful (the curiosity! the giggles! the kisses!) and some, well, not so much (three really is the new two, you know). Either way, we treasure the little nut. Here's to my gal who would rather make funny faces with her mother than brush her teeth at night... we love you more than words can say!

Now, on to the birthday celebration. We go out to eat on Fridays as a family, but heading to Petite Abeille last weekend made me realize how much I miss BRUNCH. Though we still eat our fair share of eggs benedict, it's not a weekend event like it used to be before we had kids. And I must admit, I miss it. Petite Abeille was bustling and crowded, and for good reason. The food is delish (don't miss the pumpkin waffles this fall). I felt like clinking my mimosa flute with the person next to me, I was so happy to be there. And the birthday girl with her waffle topped with a candle, homemade whipped cream and strawberry sauce? She stuffed herself silly.

Here's to birthdays and many more brunches with this babe. Afterwards, we watched Millie & Viv run off their meals on the terraced grassy space at Lincoln Center while we soaked in the last bit of warm-ish weather of the season. A pretty great day, my friends.
