Okay, so despite all the craziness caused by my Dad's situation, we still had exciting news to share over the weekend. It didn't turn out quite as well as we'd planned, but now that may Dad is back to 'normal', I'll try to pretend things with us are too.
You probably read the first part of this story, here where we had these cupcakes ordered with either pink or blue inside. I didn't really think when I picked the cupcakes, but I liked the look of the orange one, Brian is a big fan of their Banana Monkey cupcake, or whatever it's called... the yellow one... and the pink fluffy one with a cherry on top just looked like the one Clara would probably pick if she were choosing.

Then she realized her fingers were all goopy, so she needed to wipe her hands off. She's really kind of prissy, I have no idea where that comes from...
After poking around for a few minutes - Mommy was starting to go completely insane with anticipation - we asked her if she would rather have a fork to eat the cupcake with.
After that she really tied into it!
Soon she had the entire bottom of the cupcake ripped completely off. And the secret was revealed!
I was surprised that it wasn't actually icing inside, but a different colour of cake batter. I'm amazed at how they were able to do this without any colour leaking through the side of the chocolate batter.
So, there it is, people! Our next baby is a...
