My little man turned two last week. TWO. That’s just outrageous. I’ll remind you he was born in 2012 at 3.06pm on the 6th March by elective cesarean section. And exclusively formula fed. While my choices in feeding rapidly changed for baby number two and I became a full blown boob freak! By birthing selection didn’t. Two very short years later my little guy has celebrated up a storm for his birthday with lots of activities and a fun after hours party with his friends and family at a local softplay. As fitting as the location deemed treasure island we went with a pirate themed cake! And anyone who knows me knows I love an event. I especially love to design elaborate cakes for my functions. My baking is pretty good but my decorating not so much strays from rose swirls on cupcakes, so I enlisted the help of local cake hero Allison Allan. She was recommended when my usual lady was fully booked and as I find myself leaving cakes till later and later to book shes soon becoming a life saver to me.
We’re big on “OOTDs”. I wore an AQ/AQ jumpsuit in neutrals, Wyatt wore a Boss polo with Ralph Lauren slacks and Landon wore a more formal pair of dress pants and a waistcoat and shirt. Perfect attire for a pirate birthday boy!
On his actual birthday a few days prior, he had a made by mum Thomas the tank engine cake and got way too spoiled with presents. WAY too spoiled. But if you can why not. We bought him mostly things for the garden ( Little Tikes Anchors Away table, trampoline, Little Tikes Activity Cube, Thomas the Tank Engine electric ride on and track) and on order is a large jungle gym for he and his brother. I do spoil them but it’s mostly only on occasions. I can’t help it however these things are mostly for both babies and will last for a few years so potentially we just won’t have anything to buy which will hinder our spoiling. When I say our, I mean mine. That I drag husband into. Poor guy.
Safe to say he’s had a lovely birthday with some lovely presents and company from fabulous people.
