Happy Birthday!!! Part One

We celebrated Peanut's birthday few days before her birthday, cos the actual date falls on a Tuesday. We did not do a big birthday party cos we're low key like that *ahem*, but I doubt we can get away with it when she turns two. And also when she has more kawans * double ahem*.

So we booked a chinese restaurant for the dinner, ordered a cake and off we went off to celebrate on Saturday night with immediate family members.

Before setting off for dinner, I took the obligatory photo of her in her new dress. It's getting harder and harder to make her sit still while i take pictures.

Her uncle and future aunt got her a big pressie with a card. She's quite thrilled by it. With the card I mean.

Very engrossed by it actually.

She couldn't put it down even after 15 minutes.

And yes dear, we know you're one now! *mwuacks*

Her birthday cake which we got from Rui Patisserie.

Another look; the stars reminds me of Care Bears Movie.

It's supposed to be a red velvet cake, and velvet cake is supposed to be really red in color so I was a bit surprised when it wasn't as red as I expected it to be. Looks more like a normal chocolate cake.

It should look like this, but I guess it's good that it isn't that red :) . Less coloring, and suitable for Peanut to eat (image curi-ed from google).

Oh ya, Peanut had her first taste of cake! She's never eaten anything else except porridge, fruits and rice crackers for the past few months so that's her expression above after eating cake for the first time. Good news is, she swallowed it. She also ate rice for the first time that night. It's a night of firsts yo.

And we did all the Happy Birthday singing, blowing off the candle, eating the longetivity noodles shebang but no pictures cos I was busy helping her blow the candle with BigB wtf cos babies still can't blow yet.

I took out those icing figurines off the cake, popped them into a plastic bag, and put it into the freezer at home. C0s I don't know what to do with it. Throwing it away seems a bit sayang cos it's so happy and cute, so might as well keep it and show Peanut when she turns 2 lol.

And that's part one of her mini birthday celebration. Part 2 will be on the actual date itself (tomorrow).
