Two years old

We had an almost all-week-long birthday celebration for Starbeans last week. We somehow rigged it so he opened one present a day, for four days (it was accidental, but it spread the fun out - and he's too young to care at this point). We sang Happy Birthday to him almost every day as well, which he loved. His birthday was last Monday, but here he was, last Friday, blowing out his candles for the family birthday party. He had so much fun (so did we). He is spending a lot of time singing, "Happy Day Day-go!" along with "Twinkle Twinkle Twinkle".

And yes, I made that yellow cake from scratch. I feel the need to brag! It was delicious; very buttery and the sweetness is much more subtle than boxed cake mixes. Down with the mix! Up with scratch, baby!!

Happy Birthday to Starbeans! He had his family birthday party on Baby E's birthday (it was Friday, not saturday as I mistakenly said in an earlier comment--I apparently can't count). We spread out the gifts, too . . . I think it's more fun for them and less overwhelming at this age to do one at a time.

Yes, we celebrated on Friday...right on Baby E's birthday. Cute. It is fun reading other blogs with kids to close to Diego's age (I'm sick of calling him Starbeans). I must say, as well -- Baby E's verbal skills blow our little Day-go out of the water. She is amazing!!
