....a month ago! Last month I got all caught up and current on the blog and I told myself I would STAY current but here I am, catching up the month of February. SmackMyHead.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~We now have a 6 year old in our house! But then Alex has always seemed a year older than he really is, to me. He has such amazing energy and a loving heart. Biju and I have always agreed that he is one smart cookie and now we have his kindergarten teacher agreeing with us as well!
On the morning of Alex's birthday he walked out of his bedroom and into a big pile balloons.
The boys loved having all these balloons to play with! Although, as you can probably guess, there was a lot of popping throughout the day. Not on purpose, just getting too rough, or tying them too tightly to another balloon, or sitting on them.....
The night of Alex's birthday was pretty low key. We took the boys out to dinner then came home for some ice cream. (They'd already had cupcakes for an after school snack that day.)
There were also a few gifts involved, wrapped up in a reused Eddie Bauer bag. We go all out around here. (Alex was so concerned the whole day that the balloons were his present and that he wasn't getting anything else!) (I guess Ajay was standing too far off to the side, as he isn't in these photos.)
We had more celebrations on the next day - let's see if I can get around to posting them before another month goes by!
|There were 49 balloons piled up in front of his bedroom door. The 50th balloon had a hole in it and would air up, but I don't think it was missed.|
|Alex found this crown he'd made months ago. Then he and Ajay tied the balloons together to make "seats" (or thrones, I think!)|
|Looks comfy to me!|
|Happy Birthday, Alex!|
|Aren was convinced he needed a candle and a song, too, so we indulged him.|
|Walkie Talkies were also received with gusto before he delved back into his ice cream.|
