Nearly new

I can’t believe it’s a whole year since this.

Yes, we had a wonderful day yesterday.  I played music at church while the Dad (who had been up until 4am the night before, watching Australia play football) cleaned the house.  When I got home, he continued working; I iced the cake and organised the rest of the food.  We had a small(ish) family afternoon tea for Babess, at which she received a baby doll, bottles for the baby doll, a handbag, pink clothes and several books.  In short, a perfect birthday!

This morning, her actual birthday, she got her presents from us and overseas relatives – more books (you all know us so well!), and our gift was a doll push-chair, which was a HUGE hit.  She wouldn’t eat breakfast because she was too busy pushing her baby around the house, and tonight after bedtime I heard her saying, “Fainjin, helpu me, helpu me?”  I went in to find her with the pushchair half pulled into her cot!  She was asking him to help her lift it in with her.  She was very disappointed when I told her she couldn’t sleep with it.

So now, by popular demand (it is so, Stimey is very popular!), a picture of the cake:

    That cake is AWESOME!! I’m very impressed. Just don’t let him drive the bus.

    Happy Birthday, Babbess!!

      Don’t worry. As Babess would say, “Migeon all gone now…” 😀 He was yummy, too! Fainjin has decided he wants a spaceship on his cake. That should be easy enough. He does have 6 months to change his mind, though.

    Great job on the cake. Bad luck on the late nights for the World Cup – at least here in the UK its on in the evening. And Happy Birthday from all at Personal Baby Gifts.

      Thanks very much! And sympathies to you England fans. At least here we started with low expectations, and had them exceeded beyond our wildest dreams! (And we could yet make it to the second round… pinch me!)
