I’ve been hearing a lot of things recently about two year olds. Some good, some bad, some hilarious. An aquaintance told me that her son “woke up cheeky” on his second birthday and is still going strong. Tomorrow is Munchkin’s second (gasp!) birthday. He entered cheeky mode a while back, but this has also been accompanied by many other lovely changes.
This time last year I was fretting over which cake to bake for him. What with all the busy days of late, I don’t feel as prepared as last year for his birthday. However, his indifferent attitude towards cake (say, what?) has me feeling a bit more relaxed this time round. That’s not to say we are cakeless. No, I knocked up a digger-yellow sponge cake earlier.
I’m looking forward to all the next year has to throw at us and to another year of digger appreciation, soup-spilling, bubble kisses and giggles.
After what feels like an incredibly long blogging snooze (filled with painting, streamering, marrying, friends, celebrating, resting, packing, unpacking, packing again….) I am back. Exhausted, but back.
We had a wonderful day with our wonderful friends and family, here are a few pics.
More blogging to follow soon. Plus a bedroom make over update! x
It’s been a crazy few days, with lots of family and friends around to help celebrate the Munchkin’s first birthday. The night before, I set to work on his cake, making a simple vanilla sponge. The following morning, after all the pressies were opened and my mom and dad were taking him for a walk, I finally got down to the fun stuff…. decorating!
I think Noah was a wee bit dazed from all the goings on, but he had fun toddling around from room to room. It was all lovely and he was a lucky boy having all his family and friends there.
The last couple of days i’ve been a bit all over the place, I think I need to put my feet up and have a cuppa.
I’m having inner turmoil over Noah’s first birthday cake. What flavour should I make? If I had my usual healthy eating cap on like I normally do at his mealtimes, I would be cruel and make him a healthy fruit/vegetable-based, sugar free cake. BLURGH, who wants that? It’s verging on child cruelty. If he can’t have a treat on his birthday, when can he? So, what cake to make….
I fell in love with this rainbow cake. However, I think it’s just a bit too much pressure to put myself under and I can only imagine the state of the kitchen after making six different layers…
Then, I thought………carrot cake! Everybody loves this veggie cake (box ticked!). However, it’s not very birthday-ish.
Well, you can’t get any more first-birthday-ish than a great big numero uno cake can you?
