Just Like Her Mama
The company patch displayed on Tim's cake
Tim takes command of Charlie Company at this end of this week, Friday the 13th. After his ceremony we are responsible for hosting a lunch for 100 people--whew! Lucky for me, part of the reception includes a cake. Other wives had suggested Walmart because they're super cheap, but if you know me you know that I LOVE my sweets; this was the perfect opportunity to explore some local bakery shops. I found one that has the ability to put photo images on the cake (it's standard to display the company patch) at a pretty competitive price. Before ordering the cake I asked to sample their options and was happy with the white and chocolate cupcakes they offered (Tim's flavor choice). We ordered a marble cake with strawberry filling and whipped cream frosting. Baby girl must love sweets just like her Mama because she was throwing a party in my belly once she tasted all that glorious sugar. Her kicks carried way more punch than usual. It's such an odd and thrilling feeling; I can't imagine what it's going to feel like as she gets bigger! I saved half of each cupcake for Tim to sample when we comes home from work, but I'm not sure pregnant me can ignore the temptation to finish them =).
