Well…our baby is 2. We did not have a party this year (if you can believe that….yes, I have restraint). But I did make a cake and we had a very small celebration with Ollie’s friends, Rusty & Max.
Ollie loves frogs and turtles, so he got a frog cake and I splurged on the huge mylar turtle balloon. He loved it, but not as much as the goldfish, which was his ‘big’ gift.
We asked the boys what they wanted to name mr. fish. First, Noah suggested “Bakkak” (i have no explanation for that), next was “Trainsian”…interesting, then Noah adamantly suggested Nemo. Well…he actually ‘told’ us his name was Nemo. We argued and said he doesn’t even look like Nemo…well, Noah won. So, our fish has the incredibly ‘unique’ name of Nemo. Lovely. 🙂
OK, this is embarrassing—more than three months late with these pictures. Sorry!
Noah’s birthday was great. Noah loved his rocket cake, and all of the kids had a great time playing in the rocket Amy made (from the box for a new filing cabinet we happened to have delivered a couple of weeks earlier).
Actually this was a few weeks before Christmas. Amy couldn’t resist getting the kids get dressed up in their Christmas pajamas to take some pictures.
Ollie had a blast at his birthday party! His favorite parts were playing with balloons, eating Cocoa Puffs off of his cupcake, and hearing everyone sing happy birthday to him.
(By the way, there were lots of other kids there. We’re generally careful not to post pictures of other people’s children, out of respect for their privacy.)
“No, I don’t need to take a nap… just resting my eyes… for a… min… zzzzzz…”
Thanks Uncle Jon and Aarti.
Thanks Emma & Brayden.
Our second ever Christmas tree.
