Davis's cake was based on a rubber duck idea I had seen online. I wanted to do a cupcake tree but in the absence of such a delightful apparatus I opted for a mini-tiered cake accompanied by an army of ducklings floating on a sweet sea of blue frosting.
To my great delight Trey, it turns out, is a cupcake-aholic. No telling how many he ate today.
Just as we did for Addison's first birthday, we got Davis a keepsake print about the day and year he was born. I wanted to make sure that we got one specifically from the UK so all the details would be based around the place he was born. If you click on the image it should enlarge and you too can enjoy some interesting facts like the cost of a pint of beer or favorite television shows.
The smorgasbord. If you look carefully to the right you will see my brand new crock pot, which I am falling madly in love with. Today I did slow cooker meatballs for meatball sandwhiches again compliments of allrecipes.com.
Crawling around waiting for the guests to arrive. I finished his green vest yesterday. It was supposed to wait for Easter (I'm about to start Addison's matching one), but it seemed wasteful not to debut it today. It fit him perfectly, and he looked so handsome in it. I'll post more pictures of the vest in a subsequent blog.

Daddy and D.
OK, that is definitely more than ONE candle.
Singing Happy Birthday and blowing out the candles with a little help from big bro.
Trying his first bit of cake. Davis will not feed himself yet despite all my efforts, so Trey fed him some cupcake and spared us all the usual ensuing mess (thank goodness in that new vest). He seemed to like it although he definitely looks worn out in this photo.
Addison is ALWAYS up for some cake.
The scene of the crime...er party.
Our baby sweet sweet.
Nothing brings a smile to D's face like cars and trucks. All boy!
