One Week Old
AK marked baby m's one week birthday today with some cake from Tia Gina. Gina prepared a wonderful italian dish made up of stuff i cant pronounce along with a big brother cake for AK. Chocolate. his favorite. You will also notice the contribution from my father in this picture. thats frozen turkey in that glad bag. from thanksgiving? new years? i dunno. We picked lettuce from our garden to make a salad. bueno!
ak likes to call out his favorites. its really cute when he does. He has his fave parks, foods, and music.
we have been using the cake to get him to eat dinner recently. he has become quite picky and I have had about enough of it and tried the whole, eat this or nothing! but then he wakes me up at 5 in the morning saying he's hungry!!! arg! so now i give him food he likes even though it seems weird. so Yogurt dinners are not uncommon in the household.
so we put a candle in the last piece of cake and sang happy birthday to baby m.
when ak's grandparents brought him to the hospital to see baby m for the first time they took him to the gift shop to get a gift for his baby sister as per t's suggestion. and all on his own, AK picked a PINK hairbrush and comb set! before even seeing the baby! or knowing the sex!
speaking of cake, some of the girls from my advanced tv class made a cake in celebration of baby m. they also made her a onesey! that says i love daddy, but then they added + k-ahs (which is the name of their television show)
that class is %90 girls so they have been all about baby m.
it was very sweet.
