Baker's 4th Birthday


This absolute stunner of a boy has now been in my life (almost) 4 years! He was born on the 26th of August 2012 and we got him on the 7th of October, 5 days before my 22nd birthday. Every moment from then with him has flown and it is literally impossible to imagine my life without him. Our jobs are worked around being with him, our days out or rare holidays are planned with him in mind and my day - read world - revolves around him. He is my best friend ever and more recently, my unofficial therapy dog.
Anyway, back to the point, it was Baker's 4th birthday...evidently...and these are the photos from his party. 


Luckily what started off as a dull but very mild day ended up beautiful sunshine. Dad and I made some dog safe banana muffins and I experimented with a mashed frozen banana and honey frosting for a couple of them. We won't make that recipe again. haha
Baker opened his gifts and two Barks and Bunnies boxes, one of which was extremely kindly sent by Kerri and Kris. Thank you both so much, it was far too kind and he love Aretha! He adores opening presents and was super confused on the Friday when he had none to open.
Next year will be the big 0 - 5 so I'll have to get the thinking cap on for a better cake and what gifts he can possibly need.

Thank you again to anyone who wished him a Happy Birthday. He is my baby as I'm not having kids so it does mean quite a bit to me that people understand my love for him :) Thanks again!
(Below is the video of him opening his gifts!)

  3. Oh my gosh, I totally understand your love for him. Although I do want children, I haven't got any yet, and my cat is my baby. People often think I'm strange, but my cat is honestly more like a dog. He's not allowed out, as we live by a fast, busy road. So he only has me and my fiancé for company, so he's very reliant on us. I work from home one day a week, and have 2 days a week off just so he's not on his own too much, and we buy him presents for his birthday, January, and Christmas. Honestly, I always say to everyone, he'll always be my baby, my first baby! Happy belated birthday, Baker. It looks like he enjoyed it!! x www.aimeeraindropwrites.co.uk x

    1. I'd love to adopt one day but goodness knows if that will ever happen. But like you say he is our first child, always!
      Haha I'm glad to hear it! We do Birthday, Christmas and Easter gifts as well as ones through the year because he's spoiled and loves a present!
      Thanks so much <3

  7. Ahh I love that video! Baker is so so cute, can't believe he's 4! I was just thinking we should do something for Baker's 5th birthday with (hopefully) our puppy, but it might be too early for them to travel... But I'm totes up for a little puppy party!

    1. Me either! And YES! 100%! Fingers crossed you get a puppy from the first litter and so they'll be maybe just old enough by his birthday haha.

  8. Awww, I love the video, it's so cute. I always enjoy the videos you post of Baker opening any gifts he gets, the way he nuzzles and paws at the boxes is adorable, and I must remember to send him a card next year for this 5th too, I promise! Again, Happy 4th Birthday Baker, here's to another happy year! - Tasha
