Hooray, Mini-human is a year old and no one has killed anyone nor has anyone gone insane! It’s been fun. It’s been unpredictable. It’s been full of emotion. I look at my fuzzy-haired Mini-human and sometimes I see a cute little baby, whereas other times I see glimpses of a determined little boy. I can’t wait for him to grow up yet I also want him to stay a baby for a little longer.

Food from a book which has been read to him almost everyday since he was around 4 months old. Never too early to foster a love of both food and books, right? And there was also Chinese roast pork because, um, tradition and all that. Plus there was cake.
A chocolate caterpillar-shaped cake which involved a lot of food colouring and buttercream. Took a photo of one of Mini-human’s caterpillar bibs, enlarged the image on a computer, then traced it from the screen to achieve the cake shape. Don’t think I’ll ever make the cake again but at least it makes for good photographic memories when Mini-human grows up. Something I hope he does soon enough but not too quickly.
