Cake & Kisses & Kittens- Oh my.

Do you remember baby Cole?baby 005 black and whiteLast week he turned 1.melissa 050

Kaish came home from school last week and saw Cole’s cake and just about flipped out with happiness. Kaish LOVES cake. When he learned that the cute cake was not for us, but rather for baby Cole, it was almost more than he could bear. He made me promise to bring home the leftovers. cake4

I assumed there would be some. Boy, was I wrong. Cole LOVES cake even more than Kaish. I haven’t seen anyone ever eat cake like Cole before. Ever.cake

When I came home and told Kaish, he wanted to show me that he could eat messy just like Cole. He wasn’t nearly as good at it : )rosettaDid you really think I would ask COMPLETE strangers to lay down on chalk figures and be corpses?  Come on. That is ridiculous. I had know Rosette and Frank for a good three minutes before I pleaded presented that idea. We shot their engagement pictures at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  If you live around here, you must skeedaddle over there this instant! (Unless it is after five…) cake1Here is the baby kitten. Adorable, right? We love her mightily!

cake2 And this is baby Jesse. We love him mightily as well. Almost as much as the kitten. Psyche.cake3  And last, but not least, a picture of some random violence because you haven’t seen any in a while and we almost always have some of that going on around here! Study 1 - black border (resized 150) What is going on with you today?

Who doesn't love cake? Or The Hoff? Oh, that's right. America. Sob.

Awesome post! I love the pics and couldn't possibly pic a fave! I love your idea of having the couple lay down in some chalk for that shot - definitely NOT an engagement pose I've seen before. :)

Glad Kaish got to have his cake. And eat it, too. :)

Such cute babies, such a gorgeous couple, and cute kids too - even those participating in random violence!

Bec said...

Mmmmmm...now I want cake. Lots of it. And that kitten is just precious!

Marilyn said...

Yummy, that cake looks good. Love the kitten picture. Well, I love all the pictures. Great post. Always a surprise from you.

Kaish with glasses? Tell him I think he looks so very cool in them!

Every time I read your posts, I can see what a fun mommy you are... I bet you'd make a mighty fine aunt, godmother, too! :)

Oh, I wish I could put posts together like you do. What a great record of Kaish's childhood. Someday, when you print it all out as a blog book and he's a man and he reads it... I bet there will be a tear or twenty that trickle down his cheek. You are SO cool!

Jennifer @ Studio JRU said...

Love the photos! I just *love* the shot of baby Jesse's eyelashes... precious! :)

Lori said...

Have I ever told you that you are one of the coolest, bestest Mom's ever? Cause you definetly are. :) Your boy has glasses now....tell him he looks very nice in them...I cannot believe how much he has grown up since I first met you.

I so wish I lived near you so you could take pictures of my little's. Bless you for your beautiful fun cool heart. :) XX

Kelly said...

Yum, cake! It looked pretty, too.

Adrienne in Ohio said...

You have such great photos, Becky! I love, love, love your kitten!

What is going on here today? Editing between loads of laundry. I did sneak over to the reservoir while the hospice aide was here. I was hoping to see the bald eagles again. No luck, but I had a nice chat with a local fisherman. One more load of clothes to fold, and then it's off to dreamland for me.

Marie said...

I´d love a piece of that cake, please ;-)

What did you name the kitty?

Kaish sure looks handsome in his glasses! I'm with him on the cake. I love cake!

Your chalk outline photos were adorable.

Helen said...

Thank you for your comment yesterday!
She had a blast. we held the party on sunday and she was spoilt rotten hahaha

I love reading up on your blog (links in my list hihi so I'm always up to date)

Your posts always bring me big smiles. Great for days likes these (read: autumn and wet outside)
Autumns here get pretty close to the ones I lived in in NY but not close enough ^^.

Yep, my Dexter would have done exactly the same to get me to think he was cuter too!

LOVE these pics! My favorite is Kaishon with the cake. Too funny. And what a pretty kitty!

Maddy said...

Your weekends are always jammed packed with action!! Of the good kind, of course! I love it! And I want to know when we'll be able to hang out again:) If you lived closer, I would give about 3/4 of Kleber's beautiful birthday cake for Kaishon!! There's Noooooo way we're going to finish it all...such a waste!
