Earlier this week we celebrated my eldest munchkin's second birthday. Sometimes the last two years feel as if they have been impossibly short. He can't possibly be two! He was just an enormous newborn yesterday, wasn't he? Then, at other times I can hardly believe that its only been two years. Shouldn't he be like, ten, right now?
The theme of the day was "8", since that's the birthday boy's favorite number. It was the first number he learned to say and he has always like it the best. I made him a shirt with an "8" appliqued on it, and while he liked looking at it, he really didn't want to wear it. Really really with a tantrum.
Anyway, I really wanted to rectify that so we went all out in the cupcake department. We started with this recipe for whole wheat chocolate cake from the 100 Days of Real Food website. We just had to change the cooking time a little bit since we were making cupcakes instead of a big cake.
We finished off the day with a trip to the children's museum. CJ had a great time, and of course had a tantrum when it was time to leave.
It's going to be a challenging year, isn't it?
But seriously, love him.
