Today is Maimie Beth's birthday. Because there was not a note left with her at the Social Welfare Institute, Maimie was given an estimated birthday of October 11. Doesn't she look like a pumpkin pie in her little fall outfit?

Although we are having a larger party for her on Saturday, we couldn't let today pass without any celebration. We had a little pink cake and ice cream. I had set a couple of things aside for Maimie before we even had her referral information, so I wrapped them up for her to unwrap tonight. It was too precious watching her tear off one little piece of wrapping paper at a time. After each piece, she motioned for us to wait where we were--she'd be right back. Then she went to the kitchen garbage can to throw each piece away before ripping into the next.
Look out, Rachael Ray!
Here is a video of Maimie's birthday wish. It's a little long, but she's persistent!
