Birthday PREP

Happy 2nd Birthday Hayden

On the 10th of APRIL 2012 at 11:02 am I gave birth and was blessed with the most beautiful baby boy in the world. I still can’t believe he is now 2 years old … It was such a blessing to see him wake up, sorry I mean it was such a blessing to wake him up (sleepy head) and say Happy Birthday and for him to rub his eyes several times and say Happy Birthday back … Melted my heart.

We spent the night getting the living room done up for him with tons of balloons, his new table and chairs set and black/white board.

We then got dressed and headed out to the cinema to watch RIO 2 … from the first time he discovered RIO on sky movies we have not stopped watching it. He kept saying RIO RIO RIO every two mins I thought that might change once he had seen the movie, Oh was I wrong. He said it even more… Followed by ‘PAP PAP’

He picked his own outfit by the way, I placed out a few options for him and this was it.

Top: Matalan
Dungrees: Grubbies
Tights: Little Titans
Trainers: Nike Blazers

Happy 2nd Birthday Baby Boy

We were thinking of holding a party for him like last year but we decided last minute to keep it really small. My sister said she was coming round after work and my cousin said she would pop in so It was really quite. I even decided to make Gluten, Wheat, Egg, Dairy, Nuts free cupcakes for my little Caterpillar. This was my VERY FIRST attempt at making them, they came out pretty hard but I am very proud at my attempt. Just wish I didn’t decided to try them first on his birthday HA-HA. I didnt have any other icing colours other then green and black either.

All in all I have to say I am one proud mummy, I love this little boy to bits. Its bitter sweet to see him grow before my eyes and I often say where has my baby gone in which he replies ‘Me’ but I seriously wouldn’t have it any other way.

He is super smart, funny, strong, free spirited and has such a kind heart I can’t wait to spend many more birthdays with him. Writing this post I have realised I am always the one behind the camera & I told myself I need to stop doing that but I’m not taking all the shots (I don’t want to miss a thing) there will be none… I need to figure out how to fix this. I didn’t even get a birthday photo!
Next year buddy I will be in front of the camera with you!

Happy 2nd Birthday baby boy!!!
We love you.
