A preciousness beyond words...and as he grows he just gets sweeter and cuter and oh so huggable.
Now at seven I am just so proud to have him in my life, to be able to call him mine, to be able to witness this amazing little person blossom and grow into the person he is meant to be.
So for his birthday Loki requested homemade pizzas and a New York Style Cheescake made from scratch with fresh berries on top. No sweat right?...Let's say that it was definitely a worthy challenge but he is worth every second spent in the kitchen. While the pizzas were good I think I was supremely proud of the Cheesecake that his "papa" made. He used the NY Style Cheesecake recipe from allrecipes.com "New York Cheesecake III by: Sandy which can be found at the following link- http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/new-york-cheesecake-iii/Detail.aspx -and we modified it to be gluten free using OrGran all purpose plain flour
When it had cooled I covered it in yummy fresh organic blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and strawberries. It was a sight to behold... and it tasted fantastic. It is officially on our love it recipe list.
The party was great and Loki was thrilled with everything. My sweet step daughter had her 4th birthday on the 29th and it is so exciting to watch her grow and change!
The last birthday of the group is our newest addition; sweet itty bitty Bodhi.
He is my bright little light and I am both sad and excited to have him turning one already. Luckily he is still my cuddle buddy; though now that he is mobile his hugs are on the run. So many wonderful celebrations to have. I am just such a lucky gal!
