Avery's 2nd Birthday

Well, we survived the first two years. For those of you who know anything about our last two years with Avery, we sometimes wondered. She has turned out to be so sweet, funny, tender, strong (in many ways)...we just love her to death. We think she had a good party. For the most part...right up until she burned her lips on the birthday cake. Are we the worst parents in the world? I mean, it happened so fast. Soon enough she was fine and ready to dive into her cake. Two things I learned today (other than not to let your child's face get too close to the candle): 1) don't wait until the day of to decide that it would be a good idea to make a Mickey Mouse cake, and 2)you can't make black frosting. Other than that, the cake would have turned out great. As Caden put it, it tasted better than it looked.

Looks like fun! I always thought Avery looked a lot like you, but I can see so much of Ryan in her in that first picture. Anyway, here's to having a year of "not-so-terrible" twos!

Oh, and I really like the changes on the recipe blog.

I keep forgetting to mention this, but the first picture doesn't look like Avery to me at all. Has she changed a lot? Still so cute, but just much more Caden in her face.
