Yesterday was Liam's 2nd birthday...wahhh! The time has steadily sped by and he has changed so much since that first day I held him. There is something so special about having a little man child that just makes you want to cherish all the sweet kisses and requests for hugs. As he holds my face between his sweet chubby hands, I melt...so darling:-)
We actually celebrated his birthday with my parents the same day as Fiona's little party, so this was a more special family day of simple pleasures. We started out with him opening his remaining gifts...a Toby and Thomas train set and James train. He is happily showing me James above there:-)
As you can see he LOVES his trains. He was sitting with(and often in)his track for most of the morning. He also wanted to sleep with Toby in his bed...LOVES Toby the best I think:-) I went ahead and let him sleep with him...how can you resist sweetly twinkling eyes?!
I also made him a train cake. I am no cake expert, but I was pleased with how it turned out. Liam requested one that was red like James...so, here is my version:
James' tender and smoke were made with crushed cookies, the wheels and window with little jimmies and his red "coat" I used pink icing(I did try to make it red..no such luck) and red sugar sprinkles. Knowing my children are happy with my creations makes it totally worth while:-)
And one last thought...a very happy, satisfied birthday boy:-)
