We got an "Elmo Says" book from the library last year and ever since, Hannah has LOVED Elmo. So, for her 2nd Bday we decided to attempt Elmo cupcakes. Here we are the night before making the cupcakes (you'd never guess she'd eaten some batter would you?):
Here's the final product....they were supposed to look a lot better, but isn't that pretty much the case with everything. At least she recognized them as Elmo. I suppose that's all that really matters.
I think they look a little better from further away:
She doesn't really care. She got to eat an entire cupcake all by herself. I'm pretty sure she has never had that much sugar in her system.....she was literally bouncing off the walls the rest of the night. I've never seen her so hyper. Needless to say, she only got one cupcake....no leftovers for her. :(
Here she is after opening her birthday gift - it's got a bunch of hair clips, elastics, etc.....and in case you can't tell she's admiring herself in the mirror.
She's not a baby anymore, she's entering the "little girl" phase. Sad, but fun.
