"I'm a big brother" - sometimes it's easiest to just state the obvious
Not just a cool present, it comes in cool wrapping paper!
Already putting it to good use! The weather was nice enough to take it into the sandbox
Check out that dumping action!
I tried to make the car red, and I used an entire bottle of red food coloring and it only turned BRIGHT PINK! So I added some yellow and made do with a coral-colored car. We'll definitely use this cake mold again for his birthday, it was a huge hit with Patrick!
This was much more interesting to watch than him barely picking at his first-birthday cake. Finally! Some messy recognition for my efforts!
And now, the reason for the party - there's a LITTLE brother in town! Plus, check out my cool new haircut. It's actually much cooler when it's washed, my morning got a little crazy, what with the pink frosting not cooperating. I was going to wait until about 3 months post-pardum to cut it, after the pregnancy face fluff (ok, chubbiness) went away but before I started losing copious amounts of hair. Turns out, my face didn't thicken up quite like it did with Patrick, so I got to do it early!
