Belated Birthday Post

Thursday was Justin's birthday and I wanted to do a post then but let's face it, I am busy!  Cleaning the kitchen alone is quite a job with all of the dishes that we go through.  And, Kyle isn't even using bottles yet!  I am trying to stay on top of things so that the house doesn't become a total bomb but most of the time it looks like that anyway.  I have also spent quite a bit of time at the doctor's office lately with sick kids and then took Kyle last week for his two month check up.  I take Anna this Wednesday to get her ears checked and make sure all is clear there, so that will be three weeks in a row that they get to see our smiling faces!  Kyle is healthy by the way, weighing 11lbs 15 ounces (48%) and is 23.75 inches long (70%).  He got his vaccines and pouted for a moment and then we were on our way.  He cries harder when in his car seat than when he got two shots so I don't know what to think about that.  If you are wanting to see him or anyone in this family, you are going to have to come to us because the crying in the car is ridiculous!  Anyway, we celebrated Justin's birthday with his usual cake that he loves.  I make it for him every year and it is gone within two days, seriously.  I think by the time Kyle gets bigger I will have to make two of them just for the boys in this house.  The kids helped me make it and Anna was so cute wishing Justin "Happy Birthday" all day.

 And to think, the sugar hadn't even been eaten yet and he is already jazzed up about it!
 Kyle taking notes!
 This cake is devil's food cake with sweetened condensed milk and caramel poured over, chocolate icing and then Reese's pieces sprinkled on top.  Sugar overload!!!

I finished his cake on Wednesday night even though his birthday was Thursday.  I wanted him to have the whole day to enjoy the cake and didn't even have a chance to take a picture of it whole!  Justin dove in on Wednesday night!  Happy Belated, Justin.  We love you!!!

Now that's a cake!! I can only imagine how hard it is to keep things clean with 3 kids - two is hard enough for me! :)

Hattie did the same thing when she was that exact age in the car. IT WAS AWFUL, it was seriously the only time she cried. Luckily, she got over it pretty quick. I don't remember exactly when, but now she just coos and giggles in the car- phew.

So loving your blog and that it seems like we have parallel lives going on :)
Miss ya
