I better finish documenting Caroline’s birthday. She turned two! However, when asked how old she is, she responds, “Be three!” She’s just excited to grow up, I guess.
Caroline helped me make her cake by licking the beaters:
Here’s her Piggie and Gerald cake:
Have you heard of Piggie and Gerald? Allow me to introduce you. They are characters from books written by Mo Willems. We highly recommend the books. Brooke and Caroline love them. In fact, one of the books has already had its fifteen minutes of fame right here on our blog. Remember this post?
Another book spent some time cuddled up next to Caroline while she slept:
In short, go check these books out from the library, now! (That means you, Sarah…)
Back to our birthday celebration. We went up to my parents’ house for Caroline’s birthday dinner. Even though he’s now bald, Spencer was still adored by all:
I love this next picture. It’s my Dad holding Spencer. My Dad was getting Spencer to smile and giggle, and it was so cute so I captured the moment. This picture can also serve as a cautionary tale. If you skimp on your baby’s tummy time, he/she may develop a head as flat as my Dad’s. I’m amused by the fact that the back of his head perfectly matches the line of the fridge meeting the cupboards. Do you think they make head-reshaping helmets in my Dad’s size? Christmas present idea!
We sat my sister’s baby next to Spencer for a size comparison (four months vs. one year). Eli was fascinated with Spencer’s ear.
My Dad took a series of photos of Caroline opening her presents. Someone remind me to introduce my Dad to the zoom feature on our camera:
On second thought, maybe we don’t want close-ups if Caroline’s going to be picking her nose in every shot!
Caroline was thrilled with her new bike!
Good manners get thrown out the window when cake is involved!
Happy birthday, my sweet girl!
