Happy 2nd Birthday Thomas!

We had a little birthday party for Thomas at a local park on the weekend. My mum and dad came from Sydney which made it very special, and we had some of his little friends from mother's group.

We didn't manage to get much of a video, but these few seconds are very cute.

Here is the cake - it was a bit dodgy, but Thomas was thrilled with it, which was very gratifying.

His present from us was a toy oven, as he loves the ones at childcare. Warren and my dad did a fabulous job of assembling it, many hours in the garage, but he has been playing with it ever since. I'm hoping we have a little chef in the making.

We also made some cupcakes to share with his friends at childcare - I think Thomas will start expecting cakes and singing every day now!

Finally just a shot from floriade, which is always a lovely event in Canberra. Here is Thomas with some of his little friends.

On the pregnancy front, we had another scan this week and the heartbeat is still a bit irregular. The baby is getting very big, they estimate already 3.5kgs, but I've heard that they can get this wrong, so am trying not to get too alarmed. The doctors are recommending an early induction though, probably at 37 weeks, which is only a couple of weeks away - of course we are still nowhere near ready! I've got another appointment next week, so hopefully we will know more then.

The Bananas in Pyjamas cake is wonderful! Did you make it? Lucky Thomas.

Hope everything is okay with the baby. I have heard that they can be way off with weight estimates too. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

oh best of luck with the baby!

Thomas is just too cute, I loved the cake, didn't look dodgy to me at all, well done. LOved the vid!

Thanks! I did make the cake, it was all a bit of a rush in the end, but it tasted good!

The cake looks great and so does the oven!
Hope you have good baby news this week. They estimates of my twins weights were both not right.

Happy birthday Thomas! And my goodness mummy did a fab job on the cake(s)!

Gabrielle, OMG to your previous post! I had my heart in my throat reading it. Glad to hear that things have calmed down a little bit.

I can't believe you've only got around 4 weeks to go! Whoosh that has gone fast (from where I'm sitting!)
