We had a small family party to celebrate L’s 2nd birthday today, an event that was bittersweet for me. Once they’re past two, it gets awfully hard to pretend they’re still babies, and a loud, chaotic celebration of that fact just seems a little strange in my opinion. Still, birthdays are a big deal in our family, so we observed the occasion with L’s favorite dinner, a cake, and presents. My daughter determined days ago that the cake should be banana since bananas are L’s favorite food. I was amazed at her thoughtfulness and did my best to make a banana cake. It turned out okay, surprisingly. The kids loved it, though I think it’d have to taste pretty bad for them to turn down cake. L received lots of his favorite items for his b-day — cars and trucks. Loads of them. Big ones, little ones, ones that turn on and others that go barreling across the kitchen floor with only a slight push. He was so happy surrounded by all his new trucks. And now, a few hours later, our sweet little Pookie is officially two. We love you big guy!
