birthday girl

This weekend we celebrated Simone's first birthday and Father's day. It was nice and relaxing. I always worry about such things being stressful but Sim's party went well. Ro did much better than I thought. I expected him to freak out about his lack of presents. However, he enjoyed helping Sim open all her presents although he was disappointed at the lack of construction vehicles in her haul. He just asked when it would be his turn to open presents and we'd tell him next month on his birthday.

As is typical with babies, Sim was more interested in the paper and ribbons. She was a bit taken aback when everyone sang Happy Birthday to her but she didn't break down crying like Ro did on his first birthday and his second birthday, but then Ro's only recently come to tolerate some singing. Sim really enjoyed her cake. I made a chocolate butterfly cake with this great frosting out of whipped cream and chocolate chips. It was sooooooo delicious.

Father's Day was nice too. I got Daddy some nice tea things and made him smoke salmon alfredo with capers. yummy. It was such a nice relaxing weekend, which we really needed.

Happy belated birthday, Simone! Sounds like a nice day. I don't know how you have time to do the things you do. I relate to Happy Birthday crying. Joaquin doesn't like that song either. We cringe when we hear it at restaurants. One year everyone sang it in hushed tones. Too funny.
