“Cake is good for me. It makes me grow…”

“…and I’ll be big like daddy.”

Yesterday was Little T’s birthday. My baby is one! Seriously, that boy is so doggone cute! SO SO SO friendly, good natured, and so happy! Just an EASY baby. I mean, babies are never easy. But Little T is on the easy end as babies go.

Of course, Little T had to share his birthday with his big brother. Some of the highlights of the (shared) birthday celebration:

1) We lit the birthday candle, sang happy Birthday, and Big T blew out the candle. We re-lit the candle and tried again. Big T blew it out again. So we gave up. Maybe Little T will blow out his own birthday candles next year.

2) Big T tried to open all of Little T’s presents, and “share” them. Big T actually got a small gift for himself. Here’s why: I don’t want him growing up to hate valentine’s day (although, I’m thinking that may not be so terrible…). Anyway, because it was valentine’s day, Mr. T and I exchanged small gifts and cards, and since it was also Little T’s birthday, he received a few presents. It occurred to me that Big T might not like being left out of all the gift-giving, so we bought him a tiny, tiny set of lego pieces as a valentine’s day gift.

3) Big T knows his own birthday is coming up, but he keeps insisting he’s going to be one, and that Little T is four. Too funny!

Some of Big T’s other questions/comments:

“Is it MY birthday?”

“Can I open this present?”

“Will he share this toy with me?”

“Is this MY cake?”

“Can I have more cake?”

followed by the “cake is good for me…” comment.

The Birthday was fun. We enjoyed our time with family…Oh and the cake…we had a GIANT cake. It was delicious. And impressive. And yummy. Did I mention, it tasted great…especially the frosting…

1) Today, the kids had their Valentine’s day party at school. I sent Valentines for all their little friends. The scientist in me could not resist the Animal Planet valentine’s day cards with the animals, and some fun facts. The learning never stops.

2) Valentine’s day will never be the same for me. Ever. I had Little T at 5:20am on February 14, 2009. All I know is this: Valentine’s day last year, I was in a lot of pain. I had an epidural-free labor and delivery (yes, I bring up “epidural-free” every chance I get…it’s my claim to fame). I even lost a couple of  hours of my life, when I was sedated and intubated post-delivery.  But it all worked out and it was all worth it. I can hardly believe that my baby is turning 1 in a couple of days!

3) When did I become a mom of 2 toddlers?????? Ok, fine, Little T is not a toddler yet. But it’s coming!
