My Wee Man is 3!
Ethan's happy birthday started happy! He enjoyed opening gifts & getting ready for his party. He rushed to greet his friends, cousin & grandparents and eagerly awaited their gift giving (he understands this party thing well). Ethan loves Pa's tractor @ the farm so we put a tractor on his cake (sorry it's not a blue one Pa - couldn't find one in time!). Ethan saw the cake, quickly said "happy birthday to Ethan" in a sing songy voice and blew out the candles before removing the tractor and playing with it!
We then sang happy birthday amidst some laughter.
After a bit of party kai Ethan crashed big time, his temp went up (ok it was sunny but not that sunny!!) and he fell asleep on my knee (maybe I still have my baby?). Eventually took him home & he had a low grade fever (37.7 deg celsius), some pamol & a nap & he was a box of fluffies!
Katya has gone to stay with granny & pa for a week and went away in their car back to the farm quite happily. Ethan was a bit put out not to be going (his temp meant he has to stay with mum) but happy to have his sisters bed for the night.
I now have a 3 year old, a 4 year old and a 5 year old!
While celebrating Ethan's birthday a wine tour group came in with a gentleman having his birthday today too - Another April Fools baby but this one was 72 and born after lunch (his mum held on!). His name was James and Ethan's middle name is James too (know it's not an uncommon name but it's quite cute that these two met).
