Tom is two years old today!
My, oh my, where does the time go? My sweet little nephew is not a baby anymore! And he can say my name now and he recognizes me on the computer screen when we skype. It’s really amazing to see him grow up.
My Mom made this birthday cake train for him – the cake is called “Kalter Hund” (which literally means “cold dog”, since it’s a no-bake cake) and my Mom already used to make this when my sister and I were little. Definitely brings back childhood memories and I most certainly wish I could indulge in a piece right now. Everybody is gathered at my sister’s place again. You know, birthdays are a big deal in our family and there are always celebrations happening on the actual day of someone’s birthday. I love that tradition.
As always, I wish I could have been there for this milestone, but as so often, I couldn’t. At least, we already had a little Skype session this morning and he yelled “Saaaandraaaaa”, when he saw my face on the screen. It made my heart melt and I just wish I could hug and kiss him on this special day.
