Rebeka celebrated her 2nd birthday weekend before last, and I’m finally getting around to posting some pictures.  It was a lot of fun – Chet’s mom, my parents, Chet, Gabriel and I could all be home celebrating her special day.  It made me so happy that we were able to spend the day together as a family and celebrate Rebeka’s birthday on her birthday.

It’s hard as the parent, Gabriel’s care and needs really are the priority, but I want her to feel special and important.  Her needs are very important too, and I’m trying not to push her off for the sake of Gabriel.  It’s a difficult balancing act, but we’re doing the best we can.

Rebeka started off the day in full two-year old mode.

She was 2 and full of a ‘tude.

But, she is stinking adorable.  And was being cute.

Full of mischief and all things cute.

She was starting to come down with something oddly like a cold, even though she hadn’t left our property in over two weeks.  So, I decided to make mini-cakes for her birthday at the last minute to avoid any candle blowing cross contamination.

I wanted to do something cute and fancy…but, well, yah, life comes at you fast.  So, I whipped together some pink and white marbled cakes with a fluffy pink frosting for my little girlie girl.

Rebeka was such a little lady opening gifts.  She even got excited about clothes.  It was so much fun watching her appreciate everything that was given to her.

Then it was time for CAKE!

Which I think Rebeka very much enjoyed.

All in all, it was a beautiful day with my family to celebrate the birth of our daughter.
