Two Month Check up and Papa's Birthday.

Andrew had his two month check up at the pediatrician's last week. He's up to 13 pounds and 10 ounces. He's outgrown most of his newborn clothes. Some clothes that he received from his shower were never worn which is a shame. Andrew had this pesky dermatitis which I thought was just your typical baby acne but it never really went away, and he seems to be scratching his face by rubbing his face on my chest when I try to hold him. So the doctor prescribed him some hydrocortisone cream which cleared up his face overnight.  Now his cheeks are milky chubbiness! 
Sometimes when I stare at him when I'm bottle feeding him, it seems like he's changing , growing right in front of my eyes. His facial features are more pronounced, his eyebrows are darkening. He's beginning to make "baby talk" noises.  He does this when he's lying down in his bassinet. He's talking to himself. Adorable.

It was my birthday yesterday.Papa's birthday. I'm pretty low key in nature. The weather was cold , wet, and raw. So I was content on staying home. But my birthday was an excuse to bake a cake to satisfy my sweet tooth. There's this popular bakery near us in the South End called Flour Bakery. The owner / pastry chef , Joanne Chang, is an inspiration. She went to Harvard Univ, majored in Math but followed her true passion and opened up a bakery, which I believe has turned into three bakeries now. Anyways, she just released her cook book of  recipes and her recipe for birthday cake caught my eye. I knew I had to make it. I think there are a total of 5 sticks of butter in this cake but its so worth it!!

You don't have to tell me he's adorable, I can clearly see that. He's more than adorable!
It's funny how you wrote that you were bottle feeding him. I mean, I didn't think that you were breast feeding him. ha! Unless you thought that people were going to think that he was eating that cake.
Anyway, Happy Birthday to you! How wonderful. And it was so nice of Andrew to be there for your celebration. What a good kid!
Your Friend, m.
