Turning 3

This week, this little baby....

became 3 years old!

Joshua's actual birthday was Tuesday, so we had a little family lunch on Sunday complete with a birthday cake made by me -

As I said in my previous post, Joshua loves anything pink, so I hid a little surprise under the icing on this cake....-

A stripey pink cake!! 

Joshua was at nursery on his actual birthday but he had a big pile of presents to open when he got home.  I managed to make Joshua one of my bags, but this time it was giant! 


The perfect size for storing toys, and fitting in here.....

On his IKEA toy storage unit! 

I thought it was also about time Joshua got one of my little handmade aprons, he loves to help cook so he'll get plenty of wear from it. 

Speaking of cooking, one of Joshua's presents was a cute little cooking set from ELC complete with electric whisk, scales, muffins etc, it's his favourite present by far! 

As if it isn't all happening at once this week, moving to a bed, turning 3, he also started 'proper' nursery too.  New friends and fun for him and an extra 2.5 hours to myself Wed, Thur and Fri for me, win-win :)


  1. Happy Birthday Joshua! Gosh it's scary how fast they grow. I love all the things that you've been making for him lately and just think what you'll be able to invent with all that extra time on your hands! x
