Yesterday, my baby turned TWO!
We had a very simple celebration with just the immediate family, and it was so relaxed and fun. While Papa and Diego entertained Julio in the other room, Ruben and I made a birthday tea with all of his favorites.
Along with cucumber sandwiches, he enjoyed the little cups of raisins and dried cranberries and an extra lemon wedge. He picked up each little treat and asked, "Is this for ME?" He blew out his candles six times. His cake was one of my July favorites, a pound cake with a layer of fresh strawberries that have been mashed with a little confectioners sugar.
In spite of the fine china, some of the guests were wearing pajamas.
