I can't believe my baby girl is 2! It was a bittersweet moment realizing that my baby is not so much a baby anymore. I thought back to the moment I first saw her when the nurse brought her all swaddled up to me.
It was a perfect moment; there we were, the four of us - my husband, me, my son, and my new baby girl.
I went all out for her 1st birthday last year, so this year I made it a little simpler.
First, we opened presents. Big brother was there to help.
She had to show Grandpa what she got.
Then it was time for cake!
I made a three-layer chocolate cake with a layer of chocolate custard and a layer of butterscotch custard.
The outside was covered in vanilla buttercream with a royal icing dots and a royal icing Hello Kitty. I just made a printout of a Hello Kitty, put it under wax paper and filled it in with royal icing. When it was dry, it peeled right off the paper.
I also made some cookies.
Then, it was time to play outside!
Kisses from Daddy are always good, too.
Keep it sweet,
