Happy Birthday Baby Boy!!!

This one is dedicated to Holden, Happy Birthday Son!

I can hardly believe that one whole year has passed us by. It seems like only yesterday that I was anxiously awaiting his arrival. It has been a blessing to watch something so small grow to do so many things in such a small amount of time. It seems as though every baby stage stays forever, but looking back, they came and went in a flash. It took 9 weeks for Holden to sleep through the night. I thought I was dead for sure after the first 8. Then, the dread of going back to work set in. I enjoyed my time that I had to breast feed my son. I hate that I had to stop once I returned back to the "real world". Holden did not nap until he was 5 months old...that was kind of miserable. But when he learned how, he did it like a champ. I am talking 2 to 3 hour naps! :) He cut lots of teeth this year. I believe that he has 12 now. He is also walking and talking (well, you know, babyneese). I look forward to watching him grow into a young man. What a blessing.
I love you Holden! Mama's punkin' head!
Now, a walk down memory lane...closing us off with a picture of his BIRTHDAY CAKE!!

Happy Birthday and Welcome Baby

Happy Birthday and Welcome Baby
The first cake is for a young lady that is turning 14, obviously. Mom couldn't give me anything specific to work with as far as a theme, so we went with colors. Her favorite color was purple (also obvious), so we went with that. I thought that the paisley touch was feminine and not so childish. The cake is a white cake and the icing is buttercream with a strawberry and buttercream filling in the center. I hope that she has a happy 14th!

The second cake is for a baby shower that we are throwing for a co-worker of mine. She is due in December. She is having a little girl that she is naming Lola Rose. I love that! The cake is white...and should be delectible. The icing is buttercream and it is decorated with marshmallow fondant stripes and diaper!

I am not done yet. I should have one more rolling out stay tuned.
