Happy Birthday Elijah!
Well, we just finished all the celebrations for Elijah's second birthday. But if you ask him, he's "free", as in three. Where does he get that? I have no idea. But it's cute in any case.
Elijah woke up on January 7th to his mommy and daddy singing "Happy Birthday" to him. He was wide eyed and gave us big hugs right from his crib. As he walked his way down the hall and into the dining room, he squealed with excitement and said "balloons!!!" I had changed the house over Tuesday night after Elijah went to sleep from Christmas to Birthday, and boy was he surprised! It's amazing what a few balloons and Happy Birthday signs can do to a house. He had his favorite breakfast, a blueberry muffin and yogurt (which he calls "ga-go"). Then he got to spend the day with daddy. I made him his favorite dinner, Mac & Cheese, and he blew out the candle on his "happy cake". He's been asking for his happy cake ever since that day! David and I got him a soccer goal and basketball hoop (indoor friendly) and he was thrilled. He loves to kick a soccer ball around the house and I can't wait until we can actually play outside. It was a lovely day. I'll have to post some photos of it another time.
Today, I am posting this photo because these were the pj's Elijah was wearing last night for bed. He got them as a birthday present and he insisted on putting them on that night. As you can see, his cousin Nathan also has similar pj's he also wanted to wear this sam night. These two boys are so funny together. Anyway, this morning, I went to get him and found him in his birthday suite! He was so proud of himself. I am grateful he at least kept his diaper on. :) He looked up at me and when I asked him what happened, he told me "mommy, I'm nakey!" That little goof! I thought, well no kidding! Oh goodness.
Well, that's all for now. I've got to have some time to post more but thought I would fill you in on this for now. I love that boy and am overwhelmed with blessings by my family! God is good.
Love you all!
