A Lot to Come Home To

Update: Some pics added to Italy posts below!

We arrived home last night, just in time for Cakes’ third birthday today. She seems to be fine with our absence--when she saw us, she just beamed, and exclaimed, “you’re home!” Then she asked for presents, which she'd remembered I'd promised two weeks ago. She is so well adjusted--I’m very thankful.

The trip was fantastic. I’ll finish telling you about it as soon as I have a chance.

My mother-in-law was here looking after Cakes, and she kindly had everything ready for her party today. I just had to ice the cupcakes this morning. But between the jet lag and a party for a three-year old, I’m bloody exhausted. So I’ll leave you with some pics until I can recover enough brain cells to string a few words together.

Happy birthday, my love. You are an amazing little girl, and I’m so proud of you.

Oh my goodness, her face is changing!

As she starts to look less baby-like, I am starting to see you emerge in her. But those curls, those are another thing altogether.
