(( Good morning birthday boy! Here's Raffi and I, still in our pajamas, opening his first gifts ))

(( Let the party begin! ))
Yesterday we celebrated Rafael's second birthday. We kept everything very simple, just snacks, cake, and balloons, and it was wonderful. Raffi had so much fun with his friends and family. In fact, this morning, when I asked how he had enjoyed his birthday party, he answered, "More birthday!"
I made a delicious chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, and also a little smash cake just for Rafael, like I did last year.
These photos don't really show the whirlwind of fun and play that was going on, but only because Ramon and I were so busy hosting and keeping Rafael in check that it was hard to take photographs.
So, this is the end of another amazing year getting to know and love my son even more. And the beginning of another! I feel so incredibly fortunate to be Rafael's mother. How did I get so so so so lucky?!
