Isabella was so delighted to tell everyone that she was having a double-digit birthday this year. Me, not so much. I can remember when she was just 10 days old, let alone 10 years old.
My baby who would not smile for pictures has blossomed into a smiling beauty. She amazes me each day with just how witty and charming and smart and confident a young lady she has become.
The little princess asked for a neon rainbow birthday cake, and this Mama made sure it happened. I am in no way in contention for cake decorator of the year or food photographer of the year either, it appears. As incredible as it may seem, this was actually a very tasty cake. I used our favorite cupcake recipe and topped it with our world famous cream cheese buttercream frosting, how can you go wrong with that? The crowd gave the cake a thumbs up and Isabella thought I was pretty nifty for being able to make her dream cake, so I consider it a success.
This little sweat pea, who had to wear preemie clothes because she was such a tiny, petite little thing for years and years is just six days old in this photograph. No digital camera for us then, so this is a scan. I know I told you she wouldn't smile for photos, but we got lucky and caught her in the middle of a good dream.
Three more birthday still to go for our family this year...Gordon on the 14th, Victoria on November 15th and Zach on November 23rd. That's right, two November babies born 13 years and 8 days apart.
