I just can’t get over how much I’m loving motherhood so far, and how much there is to learn! My sweet, funny little boy has really completed me, and I fall more and more in love with him every day! I even told him so in a letter, which has been sealed away in a birthday card, to be opened by him a long, long time from now.
Here’s a peek into our day…
A Harvest Spice cake with a simple organic vanilla buttercreme for the birthday boy…(I’ll be sharing the recipe in a post very soon…)
And here are the cupcakes I made for the adults, based on the ones I saw on the cover of this cupcake book.
They aren’t very bright because I used turmeric and a speck of carrot juice instead of yellow food dye, but aren’t they the cutest? 🙂
Look who crashed the duck party! It’s Boon Duck Bob! We love Bob! (Especially now that we’ve moved up to the big tub!)
Our new Boon duckie was joined by a set of blocks from Uncle Goose (they’re gorgeous!), a Wheelie Bee (recommended by Kim at The Girl is a Mom. Thanks, Kim!) a Green Toys dump truck, a sleepy donkey from Under the Nile, lots of books and more. It felt like Christmas! Even though it was low-key, there was a lot of excitement and no nap. But, true to form, our boy held up like a champ.
Where did the year go? It seems like just yesterday I met this new love…
Well, here’s to year 2! I can’t wait to see what it’s like to mother a toddler. 😯
Oh, wait. I have one more surprise! Head on back to the One Whole Year main post and leave this comment: “I read your ducky post” for one last bonus entry into the package giveaway! 😉
