Although I thought the same thing when Calvin turned two
and well, he went from the sweetest little thing alive to an absolute terror, almost overnight... but this isn't about Calvin, it's mostly about Jonny.
Yesterday, Jonny turned 2. It seems like just yesterday he was turning 1(and I was being lazy with a store bought cake).
Now, he's two though and I thought he deserved a nice cake like I've made the other kids for every single one of their birthdays (except Leona, who also got store bought cupcakes, no less, for her 1st) so we went with the puppy theme. Last summer, I made a puppy cake for my friend's daughter's first birthday (wow, that makes me feel really bad that I was such a slacker for Jonny) and so I didn't have to do much research. I spent a lot more time making Maebel's cake last summer,
and I have to say that I think it is a bit (okay, extremely) cuter than Jonny's, but Jonny recognized that his cake was a puppy and all that chocolate frosting was super tasty.
- a "silly hat party" that mostly consisted of the kids putting something on their heads and lining up in our traditional picture spot in front of the windows and making faces at the camera
- opening presents... which Jonny was pretty meticulous about
- then singing, blowing out candles, and eating cake.
|although, Jonny found the toys much more fun than the cake|
|not Leona, she was all about the cake and ice cream|
After cake, we hurried to put the kids in bed before the sugar kicked in and we completely lost control of them (you should've seen them twitching in their sheets trying to lay still) then I headed out for my run, while Dan had some nice relaxing moments to himself. After my run and shower I checked on the kids before heading down to bed. Not surprisingly, Jonny was not in his bed. This time I found him all snuggled up with Calvin.
