>Seems like I post once a month. It’s seriously tough to blog every day. How in the world did I do this before?
Around this time last year, I was in labor. I guess this year Memorial Day weekend happened later this year but the Tuesday after Memorial Day in 2009, I was in labor. Can you believe it’s been a year? I cannot believe time has flown so quickly. My baby boy is finally 1! I remember the first few months were really rough and time went by so slowly. I couldn’t even fathom his first birthday happening because it seemed such a long time. Things started to get a little easier when Carey was around 5-6 months old and I guess the remainder of the year just flew by. It is so fun to see my little boy’s personality shine through. I truly do have a happy baby boy (for most of the time) and it’s been a tremendous joy to be a mother to him. I’m looking forward to our many years to come (through fun times and bad times)!
[Thank you, Macey, for the pictures! I wouldn’t have any time to take any pictures and everything would have gone unrecorded. 🙂 ]
Meanie also cooked a Viet sticky rice, spring rolls (what NYers know as “summer rolls”), green papaya salad (not so good, lol), my mom made her cold peanut butter noodles, there were grilled chicken wings and steak.
Here is Carey’s first birthday cake:
They look easy to make but in reality, a little time-consuming, but its outcome is really rewarding. Not only did they look good, they tasted good, too! I want to make more of these now. I don’t think I can decorate as nicely as Bakerella does it but at least I can do the basics. Mine are Devil’s Food cake with chocolate frosting with blue Candy Melts, dipped in sprinkles or sand sugar. It gives a satisfying crunch to the cake balls. 🙂
Thanks to everyone coming to help us celebrate Carey’s 1st! It was definitely fun! Too bad he won’t remember any of it. =*(
