A cool thing about having a baby is meeting other ladies who have babies. You become mama pals. And your babies in turn become buddies! It's a wild ride, this baby roller coaster. But having cool new mom pals to hang out with is pretty sweet. I hadn't seen Yani in years, and happened to run into her one evening in September while I was gingerly, nervously strolling my two week old kid - was he going to stay sleeping? Would he blow his top and scream cry in the middle of the street, far away from the safety of our home?
It was my first venture out - going for ice cream. (I had chocolate peanut butter. Heh). Lo and behold there was Yani and her extended family - she had a kid too!! Not just any baby, either - the cutest, roundest, most styling little baby named Lillie! Adorable! Of course she would be styling. Yani and Paul, Lillie's parents, are Vancouver's most fashionable couple!
Yani asked me to make some pink ruffly vanilla cupcakes for Lillie's 1st birthday at Collage Collage. It was a wonderful little party, a giant pink balloon for the birthday baby, drinks and snacks, pompom making (i really wanted to make one!) and plenty of family and friends warming up the place.
So cute. Happy 1st birthday Lillie! Glad Teddy and I got to come and say hi!
