Ben's second first birthday
My parents were supposed to fly out over New Year's and be here for Ben's birthday party, but unfortunately my mom got sick, so they had to postpone. They visited a few weekends ago and we had a mini birthday party, part 2, for Ben, which consisted of lunch at a Thai restaurant with all 4 grandparents, then cupcakes back at the house.
Ben again loved his cupcake, but got very upset with his mean, mean mommy when I tried to prevent him from cramming half of the cupcake into his mouth at once.
Trying to grab the cupcake before he chews it all:
And Ben crying out in fury when I left him with only this tiny, tiny (!) bite still in his mouth! (I think he still managed to get about 1/5 of the cupcake in that one bite!)
Thankfully, he cheered up and took smaller bites after that. And then showed off his new skill of brushing his teeth:
...or at least opening his mouth for a few seconds at a time so the toothbrush can make a little contact with his teeth. We're still working on it.
