Every year, our two oldest children (both boys) will share the same age (in number) for ten days. This past weekend my #2 turned 2(!) (my #1 is still 2). We have 2, 2-year-olds in the house!
We will have a big party this coming weekend to celebrate both of their birthdays with all their friends, but I like to make a cake on the actual birth"day". (Confession: I have always thought that being a cake decorator would be such a FUN job...I have a long way to go...but when b-days come around I like to get a little crazy with the cakes). Since my little guy's favorite book is The Very Hungary Caterpillar by Eric Carl I decided to make a caterpillar out of cupcakes. He LOVED it! Here are some pics....
|Eric Carl inspired birthday cake...the boys helped color and place the toppers.|
|I re-wrote the story on the back of the cupcake toppers.|
|The little lad just couldn't wait...he had to try one before the candles were lit!|
|The antennae are candles!|
|Eyes full of wonder.|
|Blow out the candles and make a wish!|
|Just look at all of that green goodness!|
|...the goodness continues.|
|Caught red handed!|
TWO! We made it!
Birthdays are such a beautiful time to celebrate life. I am in awe of the gift of G's life. I am so grateful to God for having entrusted this SPECIFIC child to my Mr and me. I can't believe how much our hearts have stretched and grown because of the presence of this little man in our lives. SUCH. A. GIFT!
Note: This post will be edited in the next couple of days to include G's Two Year Old Poem by none other than my Mr.
We are so blessed to have you in our life little one. Happy Birthday!
