Look, I crafted an honest-to-god homeade cake for the boy’s birthday! No shit, I used a Martha Stewart recipe and everything.

It’s heart shaped, people. That right there is carrot cake with cream cheese icing, so it is both cute AND nutritious. Vegetables! Protein! Dairy! My god, it’s practically a delicious novelty-shaped vitamin.

Look, Riley! It’s your first birthday cake, which your mother lovingly baked all by herself! Using actual ingredients! Can you feel the magic?

…you seem awfully suspicious, dude.

Well, maybe if your dad holds you, THEN you’re sure to get excited about this cake and maybe even try it out, right?

Or…not. Okay, you’re clearly a little unsure about the cake. That’s cool, that’s cool, I understand. You’re only a year old, I guess it takes time to, like, embrace the concept of cake (thatIbakedwithmyownhands). How about we try it from the highchair?

Well now you’re just mushing it around, and — hey! STOP SMEARING IT ON THE WALL GODDAMMIT. Dog? Oh, Dooooog?

All right, forget the cake. How about a present?

Now that’s more like it.

A very happy birthday overall, and thank you for all your great comments, which I am totally going to print for his baby book. That would be the never-touched baby book I really should fill out one of these days, except I am weirdly intimidated by having to hand-write stuff because ahhhh, there’s no Undo (note to self: find a pencil) and also I may have already forgotten the answer to every stupid question in there (“You followed an object with your eyes on ____ date” – um, yeah, I have absolutely no idea).

Anyway, we are driving down to Oregon today to visit JB’s family for the long weekend, and I am bringing about a million of those flipping cupcakes because by god someone’s going to enjoy them and praise my effort, OR ELSE.

Talk to you next week! Now excuse me, I have to go eat leftover cream cheese icing with a spoon.

    That is the exact reason why I got the HTC incredible. It is a thinner phone without the physical keyboard. I used Palm Treo for over 5 years and always loved the keyboards but with the new apps and the autocomplete functionality I did not see the need for it. As far as Verzion I’m in NY and I have had ongoing issue over the last 6 months with reception issue. How is it working in Cali? Anyone else in NY experiencing the same low reception issues?
