Kaiden's birthday party

Kaiden had a lovely birthday party with family and friends back on 16 December. He especially loved his cake which was a bright red racing car track made by me!!

It was the first time he had eaten cake, especially one with butter frosting. I had lots of fun doing it despite a couple of stressful moments (like the failed cake that wouldn't remove itself from the tin!)

Thanks to our friend Nerida who was our 'official photographer' for the day we have heaps of wonderful photos. Here's some pics:

Kaiden and me

I also made these cute little cappuccinos which is a tic toc biscuit with a marshmallow, chocolate freckle and half a peppermint lifesaver iced onto the side.

Enjoying his birthday cake..the aftermath

It's hard to believe our little guy is now ONE. He is definitely more like a toddler than a baby, into EVERYTHING but having lots of fun. Lots of babbling, sometimes loud and punctuated, cries when you stop him doing something he things he will enjoy immensely (like exploring the cupboard, fridge or pantry), and is pulling himself up on whatever he can find (the chair, table, your leg) and has for one brief moment stood by himself. We get waves and claps, little dances to music, he loves clicking his tongue and playing chasey. Just after his birthday party he decided that commando crawling was just too hard so now he does the real thing and is twice as fast! Won't be long now and he will be walking and going even faster (and will live up to my nickname for him of Kaptain Kaiden Kaos).

Those cupcakes are so cute. At least you didn't have the same problem with Kaiden's cake as I did with Christopher's - half of it fell off between the final decorating and the cutting of the cake - opps!
