Birthday Wrap-Up

Last post about Jake's birthday.

Saturday, we hosted family and friends at our home to celebrate Jake's 2nd birthday. I made baked spaghetti, and we had cake and coffee. It was very chill and relaxed. (I had actually bought tons of craft supplies from Michaels and had full intention of setting up a craft table in the garage and letting the kids go after it but all the kids were content and playing happily so why mess?)

Jake saw no problem sampling a tree before cake time.

Though Walmart disappointed me [for the first time ever- cakewise] when they did not have Blue's Clues, Jake LOVED the Backyardigans cake.

And he LOVED LOVED everyone singing to him.

Seriously, how can the same two parents have two totally different kids? I'm used to kids crying during the "happy birthday" song- not cheering and laughing. :-)

I think this was one of Jake's favorite presents. :-)

Brooklyn made the sweetest sign for the party- and even provided Jake with the Blues Clues cake he never had.


There she is. Barely let me take her picture. :-)

Happy birthday, Jake Jake. You get cuter every day and provide me with so much entertainment. And by entertainment, I mostly mean the two year old fits that you have been throwing for 3 months.

But I love you more than life itself, and I'll take those fits every day from my happy, healthy baby boy.

And yeah, you will always be my baby boy.

I was just about to say I don't think a Blues Clues cake could possibly be as adorable as the Backyardigans one, and then Brooklyn's handiwork forces me to retract my thinking. ;)

What WONDERFUL WONDERFUL kids you have. Happy Belated to Jake....and you!

I think someone's been watching a little too much "punzel."

She's got that lean in for the kiss DOWN! At least it was for her boyfriend... ;)
