This weekend was our nephew’s first birthday. S. is the first baby on either side of the family, his father’s side or his mother’s side, so needless to say, it’s a big deal. I’m proud to say that our nephew is truly, the cutest baby in the world and I have the proof to back this claim.
Exhibit B, playing badminton with Uncle Jim:
Clearly cuteness runs in the family! And he’s insanely smart, no bias. He oinks when he sees a pig, pants when he sees a dog and makes a mock-crying noise when he sees pictures of other babies. It’s pretty freaking cute.
S.’s bedroom is decorated in a Yellow Submarine theme, from the imported hand-woven submarine rug to a Yellow Submarine clock and painted walls and furniture to match. Being The Beatles lover that I am, I knew I had to do something big for his first birthday.
The real Yellow Submarine:
S.’s birthday submarine:
A chocolate cake with buttercream frosting, and some marzipan detailing. The rounds above the submarine represent The Sea of Holes, topped with marzipan faces of The Beatles plus a little baby face to represent S. It was a pretty big cake, being two 13×9 sheet cakes together, but only one layer, we were able to put a good dent in it over the weekend. S. won’t remember this cake, but there are plenty more cakes to come.
We all live in a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine, a yellow submarine…
