Grandma-Jude and I took little Jude out with us during the day and had him pick out the cupcakes he fancied the best as well as a balloon. I got him the treat of his choosing at a small organic cafe in town and we sat there while he enjoyed it (: On the way home we picked up a pizza to satisfy the other party-goers and then held a small birthday party, Jude-style, at the kitchen table. He was delighted with his gifts; a wooden transport truck holding four little cars, a handmade wooden tractor, police car, vintage wooden fire engine, and a small basket ball with a basket. We relit his candles while he repeatedly blew them out, and then he ate a few mouthfuls of ice cream but didn't eat his cupcake.
Two years old!
