Candles and Such

I know I promised you a picture of my cake, so today I grabbed Mommy's camera and took a photo. See - it's sitting over there on the stove - what's left of it...
Mommy says fortunately we do have some other birthday pictures we can show you of my "Esmé happy birt-day cake" and all the "more candles" I kept asking for and clapping for.

Here I am blowing my first cake out for the 15th time. I did real good! Mommy helped me with the first blow, but from that point on I did it all by myself...

Mommy decided she didn't want to do "more candles" any more, so I had to light them myself after awhile. 'Cept I never did get the lighter figured out. (And Mommy said to tell you these photos are strategically laid out so you can't see that I insisted on "helping" decorate the cake and shoved my fist into the one bottom wing before it was done...)

The next candles I got to blow out were at church. Only I got shy all of a sudden and didn't blow them out, even though I'd done it 25 times the day before.
Then on Sunday I got to blow out candles on another cake at the Chinese restaurant. This one had butterfly sprinkles on it, and little M&Ms! Mommy didn't spend much time decorating cuz she wanted to finish it without my help. I only got to blow the candles out twice this time. Very serious business, you see... But I didn't spit at all on this cake, you'll be happy to know.

Here I am putting my new birthday socks into my new doll dresser. It's not like dolls need any clothes.

And this remote car is way cool! I can make it run into my buddy Gabe over and over - unless he jumps over it!
And here's my new bird, Tweety, and me on my birthday. Be careful, she bites sometimes...
Also wanted to mention: I got a Happy Birthday over at Totally Tots!
