How did that happen?

Not long ago I was the proud mother of a tiny newborn girl.

newbornNow, I’m the proud mother of a precocious two year old who loves fist bumps.

fist bumpWhat a full two years it has been! I feel like I’ve blinked and missed it – but had heaps of fun along the way.

We had a second birthday bash on the weekend to celebrate. It was lots of fun – we filled the house with balloons, rustled up some yummy food, baked a birthday cake and invited Elena’s play mates (and accompanying big people) to join us.

Happy birthday, (not so) little one!

      I should write a post about it – it’s a seriously easy option for a kid’s birthday cake! No cutting into funny shapes, no crazy icing…
