HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOBY!!!



Can you believe it? Toby is one!!!!

Actually, one and 10 hours and 49 minutes.

We are celebrating Toby's birthday tonight with close family and friends - only eight people - small, as we like it : ))

Toby's only cousin Militza is here from Melbourne, it's the first time they have met. Mitz is 15, and rivals Toby in beauty in every way. If only we lived closer. Bob is here after three weeks of separation from his son and wife. All is good.

My big boy is so big and grown up, no longer a little itty bitty baby, but he is so much fun.

Mitz and I made Toby a cake today, from scratch! My first-ever decorated cake ... don't give up your day job Meg. This morning I was going to bake a simple chocolate cake in the shape of a "1" - and decorate with with chocolate freckles and smarties - can't be too hard? Then I decided to go with a "theme" for Toby's party - all at the 11th hour, as per usual. We made a crown cake modelled on the thing I photoshopped onto Toby's head above. Hmmm .... I may post pics of it later.


Look at my big boy on his first bike - thingy - it's called a Safari Rider. Toby is more interested in pulling it apart. I suspect we have a little engineer on our hands, just like dad. Til later xxx

Happy Birthday Toby! Can't believe its been a year since I watched the video of you meeting your mum and dad for the first time…with tears of absolute joy streaming down my face. Now thanks to your wonderful mum I too have a gorgeous little boy to love.
What a handsome boy you’ve become and grown so quickly. Soon you’ll be up and walking and then you have my permission to give your mother hell!
I’d love to see the birthday cake. I’m sure it would be worthy of a place in the Women’s Weekly Birthday Cake Cookbook :)
Love Su
