There I was getting used to the idea that I had a baby and the next minute I have a little boy. They say time flies when you’re having fun and I genuinely have enjoyed all the stages of his little life so far. Some of my friends are reliving the newborn part with their second children at the moment and finding it a struggle. And while I remember clearly that is wasn’t easy, I did love the baby bit. But I’ve always liked babies so I was confident about that part but dealing with tricky little people is less predictable. So fingers crossed we can get a handle on this toddler stage with all the tantrums and challenges that he’ll throw at us.
Thankfully the rain cleared up for long enough on Sunday for us to have a BBQ (the boyfriend and brother-in-law started off valiantly in the pouring rain), which was just as well as there wasn’t enough room for all the family in the house. I also decided to keep it just to close family for another year – I’m sure the big group parties of all his friends will come soon enough!
We made the cake ourselves inspired by an Australian Women’s Weekly children’s cake decorating book that my sister and I used to have when we were children. I’ll blog about that another time as it is amazing!
