Pig Cake and the big 2!

My #3 son turned 2 today. I can't think about his birth without remembering all of the drama and complications at the end of my pregnancy. I still can't believe how blessed and lucky I am to have him!
Today we celebrated with a pig cake. (I could not for the life of me think of something really fun and exotic for a 2 year old. I stood there in the kitchen with cakes baked and frosting made and still had no plan. So I thought what is fairly simple and can be made in less than 10 minutes? I give you the pig cake. (8", 6" and mini round"- stacked) We were also in the middle of selling our station wagon today so that caused a little interference! I love this boy though- He is always good for a hug and lots of kisses! I totally love my cute line-up of 3 fabulously fun boys! What a lucky mom I am!

I cannot believe he is TWO. I clearly remember the end of your pregnancy and then the beginning of his life. We LOVE #3.

I can't believe he is two either. Wow. He is a miracle--that is for sure. I love your line up of three also...what is better than THREE little boys?

I didn't recognize smartson for a minute--he looks so grown up with short hair! Sob. (and he still looks just like you to me!)

Super duper cute cake!!! I bet P was thrilled. I too can't believe he is 2!!!!! I was just telling my dh yesterday how much I love that little guy and how much I enjoyed spending time with him in the nursery on Sunday.
