Birthday Girls!

Even though we had the party on Saturday, I still felt that we needed to at least acknowledge Parker's 1st birthday on the actual day, so for breakfast she got a cupcake with a candle!

Now before you judge me for feeding my baby a cupcake for breakfast consider 2 things:

First, how is a cupcake any worse for you than doughnuts or danish or cinnamon rolls?

Secondly, she didn't even eat it. She took a big bite of icing, promptly spit it out and proceeded to pulverize the cupcake.

At which point, I cleaned up the cupcake and gave her some peaches which she did eat.

The birthday itself was pretty low key. With Trav out of town and me having to babysit I knew it wasn't going to be a super exciting day anyway. But it was fun when Crista (the mom of the boys I tend) brought me a box of cupcakes. They are as yummy as they look!!!!!!

That evening my in-laws took us out to dinner with my mom. It was very good but we decided that the next time we decide to have a fancy dinner out, we're definitely getting a sitter. And yes, it was my birthday too (as I'm sure you all know.) Sorry I had to take the photo myself, but it was the best I could do. I do think that my mom got a good photo of Parker and I together so hopefully I can get a copy of that one.

Yay for cupcakes! Speaking of which, maybe that should be our next "date". How does the cocoa bean sound??

So I looked up the ingredients in cupcakes and I saw...eggs.....milk.....flour, all are perfectly acceptable breakfast foods. Your all good in my book.
