A Birthday Bash at Home

Since we went to Disney on your actual birthday we celebrated today with cake and presents. We figured it would be cruel to have you open gifts and then immediately leave for Disney, hence postponing until today. We opened one gift in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The first was a play house, something that I REALLY wanted to get you. In your therapies we are working on expanding your imaginative play. Toys that are open ended, that can be used for multiple scenarios are the exact toys that you need right now. I spend quite a long time finding a playhouse that was unisex. Something that you could play with and that your sister would love eventually too. With an opening door, furniture, implements, people, and a car you were set to imagine away. I’m super excited that you seemed to love it.

After playing several hours with your new playhouse you opened your small gift and your large gift. The small one was a pirate chest piggy bank. I am starting to teach you a little about money so this is a good place for you to store your coins. The large box was a big hit, even your sister tried to help you open it. We got you a new waterfall toy, with spouts, ramps and wheels. I knew the second I saw this that it was the perfect toy. You love water activities in the yard and this waterfall appeals to your analytical mind. Hours of fun in the sun here we come.

Our gifts weren’t the only presents you got to open and play with, my parents gave you their gifts last month before they left but you aunt sent you a big box full of lots of fun.

Later in the afternoon we got to your all-time favorite part… the eating of cake. I made some cupcakes and put little toy story cake toppers on them. We sang happy birthday while you had this adorable silly grin on your face. And then you blew out your candle. Happy birthday buddy. We love you more than a fat kid loves cake… seriously you are our everything.
