My sweet baby boy is 2 years old today. My littlest one. Two. How can this be?!?
I remember him being born like it was yesterday. His tiny tender body in my arms. His little sounds. His newborn scent. :)
But, here we were on Saturday, my children and I, shaping wool into soft felt balls for his chubby 2 year old hands to roll and play with...........
And so the rooster crowed early this morning, just before six, before the sun popped it's head over our hill.......... and we were all on the big bed, cuddling him and kissing him in the early dawn light, and wishing him a happy birthday! He knew, he understood. There was going to be a cake today!!! A chocolate cake with "mowers on top, Mama!" :D
Stuart showing William his cake
One of the mowers on top had to come straight off.. He was so excited!!!!
he did it!!
Yes, we did eat cake for breakfast.... along with other things :D
unwrapping his felt balls......... wrapped in a blue playsilk!
I've been wanting to buy one for so long.... could only afford a little one but he still liked it
hiding, and singing his favourite hiding song......
his own special beeswax crayons
this boy loves to draw, and so does his big sister.........
she presented him with a book she had made him..........
a mowers 'colours' book! very cute........
and a mower to hang above his cot
and a finger-knitted bracelet....... which he flatly refused to wear, to Saraya's dismay
later on, drawing again
icing and decorating biscuits for morning tea
William's birthday flowers picked from the garden.
I presented them to him yesterday, and he beamed!!! He loved helping me put them in water.
We did little today other than eat, and read, and cuddle and draw.
He also requested a walk, so we did that too, right down our hilly road.
And when Papa got home the best surprise of all happened for our birthday boy.......
A big long ride on the mower!!!!!!
Happy birthday my beautiful bouncy boy. You are so very very loved by us all!!!
