a beautiful blue baby shower

Imagea few Sundays ago, myself and my girlfriends had the absolute honour of throwing a gorgeous afternoon high tea for one of our dear friends.

our afternoon was simply beautiful with so much love for the mum-to-be and her baby boy. we played a few games including the ice cube game and a game of baby gift bingo (a few days before the party I made up lists of random gifts that I predicted might be received and everyone ticked the gifts off their list as they were opened). the winners received a baby bottle full of lollies…

i was in my element planning this party and making the decorations including random glass jars for drinking glasses and bunting. and I loved all of the blue cooking I got to do. I made blueberry lemonade (which ended up pink rather than blue, but meh), blue velvet cupcakes, luscious melting moments biscuits and the most heavenly delicious ombré vanilla bean and salted caramel layer cake. oh, just thinking about it now makes me hungry…Image

what a forking little ripper

after much gruelling practice, I can finally add forking skills to my long list of mad skills (like my mad sliding skills and mad walking skills and mad eating skills).

ain’t no-one gonna get between me and my food…

get in my belly

I love food. there are no two ways about it – if you can eat it, i’m there. so it was only logical that one of these days I would cut out the middle mum man and go straight to the source…

hit me up mr. fridge-man

tuesday

how can I not be pleased with myself after my recent meteoric achievement?!? today, for the first time ever, i threw caution to the wind and with wild abandon i slid down my slide unassisted. just to please her and make her feel needed, I let mum stand at the bottom and think she was catching me, but i really didn’t need her there.

ahh, i’m lovin’ being a big boy.

this is the life…

just kicking back in bed in the middle of the day watching ‘bob the builder’. the only thing that could possibly make this scenario better would be some hot chocolate and sultanas. garçon…

happy birthday to me

every day is gonna be like this now that I’m one, isn’t it? because you couldn’t possibly mean to tell me that I will not always be the centre of attention, get a whole pile of presents and have an entire cake all to myself. I just don’t think I could handle things if life went back to the way things were yesterday, I’m one now you see, so mum and dad, you had better up your game.

my first haircut

so mum finally succumbed and took me for my first haircut – in hindsight, it was maybe a little shaggy and I may have looked just a little bit homeless…

luckily for me, there is a fun hair salon just for kids here in London, Ontario called max & oskar’s and I had it all to myself. I got to ride in an aeroplane whilst watching ‘handy manny’ episodes and having a personal slave blow bubbles around me. then to top it all of I got a lollipop, balloon and a play in the slide (no, it was not me who kept climbing up the slide – that is against the rules)…
