Today my first baby is six years old.
I stayed up until 12.30am finishing off his birthday cake and cleaning the kitchen.
He was up just after 6am – he was very quiet out in the lounge/kitchen. I poked my head around the corner and he had his head in the fridge checking on his cake. He does this every year – it is the first thing he does on his birthday. He is so cute.
“Morning birthday boy.” I whisper through the darkness.
“Mummy you made my chewbacca cake…. I LIKE IT!!!!” then he jumped up like a koala and hung off me in a hugging embrace.
He came and hopped into our bed while we waited for his little brothers to wake up. Got bored of that and was too excited so he went and watched Lego Star Wars. Pretty soon Boo and Hunter were awake and he opened his presents (starwars tee, star wars puzzle, angry birds chocolate, dinosaur books and his own little point and shoot camera) then it was the mad rush to get ready for saturday morning sport
After his rugby game he handed out lollipops to all his team mates, enjoyed a sausage back at the clubrooms then it was on to Crossfit. He handed out more lollipops there and his awesome coaches had made today’s class birthday themed. He did his birthday burpees with his class mates and got to pick the game at the end of class.
Home for lunch and naps (he insisted he wasn’t tired but after laying with him and reading him his new dinosaur book he announced he was tired and he was out to it pretty quick and so was I!)
We dropped Eli off to Dean’s parents and picked up Peyton’s friend Cade and headed off to Jungle Mini Golf. Thank goodness we live in a city that has heaps of indoor activities available as it was bucketing down by the afternoon. The three boys had an awesome time playing golf and really starting getting the hang of it towards the end. They had been playing it a bit like hockey and didn’t understand that the less you hit the ball the better your score. “I hit it 8 times! I’m the winner!”
We stopped off at the fish n chip shop to pick up dinner for the kids and extra hot chips for the adults to snack on. Cade’s family joined us along with my brother (who after my spaz out the other day apologised for being a half arsed uncle and made the effort and Peyton was so happy to see him!), Dean’s parents and brother. Our next guests were welcomed and were a lovely surprise – Coach Aaron and Coach Jo! Peyton was so happy. Then I got a text from Coach Carli to see if we were still celebrating and so we waited for Carli and Cliff to arrive and then we did the cake.
Our lounge was covered in star wars and angry birds toys and ninja turtles and our house was filled with love for our little man.
It is amazing how people that have only been in our lives a short time feel more like family than most of our real family. Truly blessed we are to have such wonderful new friends in our lives.
