20 weeks cake time

Celebrations all around, but with a moment of silence

LA has turned 20 weeks today.

The big 2 and 0.

He gets zero new rights. He isn’t even allowed to vote for his favorite toy yet. Although I believe it is still the bottle that feeds him.

But this needs to be celebrated.

So it is time for cake for mom and dad.

A very nice strawberry cake with a pinch of whip cream. Yum. Let’s get those pounds/kilograms back in, on and around my belly.

There was no candle for him to blow out. But we did let him play with the whip cream for a couple of seconds. Actually only to make a quick picture with the phone, so the quality isn’t all that.



But on this day of celebration.

There is also a moment of sadness.

Not only in this family, but in all families that have had the tragedy to lose a pregnancy or infant.

So although there was no candle on the cake for LA to blow, there is still a candle burning for NY. Which mom and dad will blow out together tonight before they go to bed.
