Birthday Pictures

There are lots of convenient things about my boys having birthdays in the same month. They share a well visit, don’t feel too jealous on the other one’s birthday, and we can take their birthday pictures at the same time. We went to Oxon Hill Farm today and trespassed to get these photos because they closed at 4:30 (?!). The boys enjoyed throwing rocks into the trees and I was able to get some nice birthday pictures. It will be nice, though, when Conan is a bit more cooperative at these little photo shoots.

Conan turns 2

Conan celebrated a birthday last week. It didn’t exactly turn out how I envisioned it, but I think Conan had a great time and that’s all that matters. We were planning on having a “Pancake Play Date” on the morning of his birthday because he requested a pancake party. Unfortunately he came down with a nasty cold a few days before and our play date had to be cancelled.

We did sneak in a trip to Toys R Us, which is always a big hit around here. They gave the birthday boy a crown that he wore for the sake of this picture and a balloon that his brother popped before we left the store.

I finished frosting his cupcakes when we got home and offered the whisk to Conan. He was unsure at first, but once he got a taste of the whipped cream he decided licking the whisk might be a good idea after all.

I made Blueberry Pancake cupcakes (for his pancake party) instead of a regular cake. They tasted more like a muffin then a cupcake to me, but they were still pretty good. Also, I love the photoshopping opportunities that are provided by birthdays! (The cupcake topper is supposed to look like the I Hop logo).


Lincoln took some pictures while we waited for Daddy to get home with our dinner. Conan looks like he’s sick in that picture.


Conan asked me to sing “Happy Birthday To You” throughout the day on his birthday. He loves it when his name is in a song.
