Last year, Suri Cruise celebrated her first birthday with a lunch at her parents’ compound in Los Angeles, where members of both the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes clans gathered to dine on pizza and cupcakes from a Beverly Hills bakery.

This April 18, as she turns 2, it seems that the birthday girl got an early start on gathering her presents.

In January, as her mother was promoting her movie Mad Money in Manhattan, Suri and Katie managed to hit toy heaven – better known as FAO Schwarz – where Tom threw Katie her own birthday bash in 2005.

As history has proven, birthdays bring about awfully big celebrations in the Cruise family. Friday, a whimsical four-tier birthday cake from Sweet Lady Jane on Melrose was collected for Suri. Whatever the plans this year, Happy Birthday, Suri. And a pinch, to grow an inch.
