As usual, we had our favourite butter cake from Jan's and my mother made some red eggs for the occasion.
She was all smiles when she saw the cake with the candles lighted up.
And then it was time to blow the candles! It took her a few tries, but her little puffs and one big final puff put out the last candle!
She was also pretty happy to see the balloons which my dad tied up to decorate the house.
She got her first card and gift from Nanna and Kung Kung.
The next day, it was her birthday! We had a small party for her at our favourite Evergreen Laurel Hotel, where we had her first birthday last year. She was rather sleepy at first as she had just woken up from a very short nap in the car on the way there.
Birthday girl getting a kiss from Daddy and Mummy:
After a while, she woke up a bit and started walking around. Her new dress and shoes were bought for her by Hubby's aunty's family who looks after her while we are at work.
This was the lovely cake which we got for her from YS Bakery, which is owned by Hubby's sister's good friend. We had no idea what the cake was going to look like, as we only told her we want a little "baby" on the cake. It definitely didn't disappoint and was quite the highlight of the day (besides the birthday girl!). It seemed such a pity to cut into it when it came to the time.
As expected, all the kids were fascinated with the cake.
Us with the cake:
And then it was time to sing the birthday song again! Now was the time that Helene really woke up, with big smiles on her face! One was especially reserved for Mummy :)
And another chance to blow the candles!
Time to cut the beautiful cake!
Little girl had a great time overall with all the eating...
And more eating!
Happy birthday to our youngest princess! We all love you so much!
