We decided to have a joint birthday party for Manny and my sister's son, Zeke, at my parent's house last weekend. We went with a theme of cars & trucks, and just used lots of bright colors for decorations. We ordered the cupcakes from SAM's. They are like $13 for 30 cupcakes and they taste really good!
Manny surprised me when it came time for cake. He was so shy and did not care much for being sung to. Luckily Gabi was nearby to save the day. Once the singing was over, he was happy to just play with his truck. He did eat some of the cupcake, but didn't dig into quite as much as I thought he would. Especially given the epic meltdown that occurred when I picked the cupcakes up from SAM'S and he proceeded to wail "Caaaaaaaaake!!!" and flop around like a fish out of water the whole time we were standing in line to pay for them.
Zekey, on the other hand, was all business. He had a great time diving into his cupcake. He was less than thrilled when they tried to take it from him though. :)
While all of this was going on, my niece Laci was taking care of Maeva. She is SO in love with her and it's just adorable to see her hold her. She is actually really good at calming her down!
So there you have it! My baby boy is "officially" 2 and I can check his birthday party off my list. Now to decide on a theme for next year so I can start planning! Just kidding. Or not.
