That itty-bitty thing we brought home from the hospital in 2011 is now a little boy. How did that happen?
I don’t talk much about my family on this blog but I am going to make an exception today and devote this post to my son.
Because someone is two! And that is a fantastic milestone.
So much has happened in the past year. He learnt to walk! He learnt to talk! He beat his eczema (well most of it)! He’s thrown a tantrum! He’s eaten his first wheat products! He’s become a pro at the playground! He’s become so much more confident in whatever he does. And yet still has that ability to amaze me everyday.
We had a little party at home on Saturday with some friends and grandma who flew in from Singapore on Thursday to celebrate!
There was shepherd’s pie, fried vegetarian beehoon (vermicelli), spinach and strawberry salad, barbecued sausages and corn, samosas and spring rolls. And some car-shaped agar-agar (jelly), cupcakes from an egg-nut-wheat-dairy-free box mix (much as I hate mixes, I still haven’t figured out egg-free cakes) and an egg-free, nut-free train chocolate banana cake from our favourite bakery (they say it’s nut-free but their other cakes do contain nuts so I was still hesitant about feeding this to wee reader. Turns out he didn’t really like it, except for the fondant!). The kids had fun with his new water table, the weather held up well and a good time was had!
Grandma made him an apron! He received so many awesome gifts, including some fun books!
