I can not say it enough, but kids grow up too quick! Especially my cherubs. You just want to bottle up their littleness and stop the clock. But then again, growing up means new adventures, a whole lot of excitement and more independence.
Thats what I'm afraid of!!
We no longer have any babies in our home :(
Our little Angus Frankie turned TWO on the 31st of October, a Halloween babe was he.
It was an exciting day for all, none more so than his big brother and sister who shower him with love , every second of every day. ( Well maybe not every second! They all like to fight like cat and dog too!)
They were excited about the cake, about his little party and about his presents!
So here it is, a birthday for a beautiful little boy. Our little boy.
And it only feels like yesterday that I wrote this;
It has become tradition in our home to decorate the kids doors for their birthday morning. It makes them feel special and builds the excitement for whats to come!
Which is lots of presents!!
I just love capturing the look on their face when they first see their presents!! Priceless. And the party that are waiting in the flanks to help the unwrapping!
And he got a bike from his Grandma and Poppy!! Excitement plus (but jealousy from Max and Lacey as they don't have one yet , bad I know, but are getting one from the big man at Christmas!)
He was chauffeured around the house by his big sister for most of the morning and loved every second!
We decided to throw him a little party with a few friends and their kids, seeing as though we aren't near family anymore and wouldn't be doing the birthday dinner and cake with cousins.
And with his birthday being Halloween too, we had a Halloween party to attend that night so cake and candles in the morning it was!
|Someone was so tempted but very patient as I was setting the food out for the party. I was mean and made him wait until people arrived to eat. So he sat here for about half and hour. Watching, waiting ......|
I kept the party and decos very basic!! Shock , horror and surprise for me I know! But it was a busy week leading up to the day and he had a ball regardless!
Some simple Goodie bags from Woolworths with bubbles, a lolly pop and a few lollies, nothing too major!
I presented Angus with the Womens Weekly cake book with a few days to go , and despite all the attempts from his siblings to try and convince him to have a certain cake, he chose this!! Good boy!! Nice and easy for Mum!
It was a simple , 2 tiered butter cake with chocolate fingers and Curly Wurly chocolate for the front gate!
And then it was over. And now we have a big 2 year old, that is toilet training (and nearly mastered it), doesn't sleep with a bed rail on his bed anymore and is just one of the kids!
He is loving, affectionate and by golly is he active and mischievous. But we wouldn't have him any other way!
Where did the time go?
Thats right .... too quick!
