To my baby boy. Seems like only yesterday he was like this.... He was 2 weeks overdue, and quite comfy. I was induced at about 8:30am and he was in my arms by 10:45am. We were back in Mundubbera by 3pm. All very orderly and efficient. It was a special delivery too, cause my mum was with me...the first of my three children's births she was able to attend. (I hadn't wanted anyone with #1 - thought I might say swears, #2 mumsy was too sick, and so #3 it was, even though she was probably still too sick)
Going overdue made me cranky. Mick had started his leave on the due date. Mum had to travel over to Bundy (2 1/2 hours each way) to dialyse every few days, and well...I was HUGE! I tried everything to shake him out, but there was no rushing my boy :-)
He was a divine baby. Fed 4 hourly, slept quite well, and fitted into our family perfectly.
And now he is 4.
A gorgeous, energetic bundle of 4 year old boy!
He requested an army guy cake...so, I made one. Despite me reservations. I knew it would look hideous, I knew it was quite possible innappropriate...but he loved it!
Note the four year old grubby face and fingers...
He got a bike...which has been ridden a couple of time around the house..tomorrow him and I are going down to the bike track to launch it properly.
I tried to get a good pic of the grand present unwrapping, but he was too fast. I have never seen anyone unwrap presents that fast!
So all in all, he has had a good day. He had a friend around to play and have morning tea with, and announced to anyone he met 'today is my birfday'. He gave away a lot of birthday boy cuddles and ate lots of stuff he shouldn't.
Happy birthday my Sammy. I love you :-) You are the coolest 4 year old I know!
