Charlotte Turns Two!

Our sweet little buttercup is TWO!!!

 On her actual birthday, we made a special trip to the Dollar Store for a whole loaf of duck bread, so she could feed the ducks and geese to her heart's content. 

You sure look a lot bigger close-up, Mrs. Goose
Lunchtime!!
We also had a bunny party to celebrate the occasion, themed in honor of her best friend: a stuffed bunny named Baboo.  The bunny started out as "Jellybean," after the little jellybeans on her jaunty pink ribbon, but Charlotte insisted her name was Baboo.  (I guess, her version of "baby"...??)  Anyway, it stuck.  And Baboo is now a treasured member of the family.
On R: Original Baboo.  Yes, she is clean, she just has a perma-gray tint now.  It's from all the love and kisses she's absorbed.
On L: Back-up Baboo.  After we realized how attached she was, we desperately searched for a back-up and Micah's mom saved the day!!  See how she is fluffy and white?  And her ribbon is still pink??  Although Charlotte will tolerate "new Baboo" she will NOT accept the substitute (even when real Baboo is in the wash).  Hmm.

Pink bunny cupcakes with cotton candy tails

Pink bunny cake, with ill-advised placement of front paws. 
After the party started, it was brought to my attention that the bunny appears to have boobs.  Whoops.  You think I would have been more careful about that, after the unfortunate incident involving Barrett's beach ball cake...
 Everyone had a great time~~  Even though the birthday girl was a little shy at first when there were lots of people in our house, she warmed up, especially when she realized she got her very own cake.  Barrett, of course, loves having family and friends over to play -- the more, the better -- and is already planning his next birthday party.  :)
 Happy Birthday sweet girl!!  We love you~~~
