This last week has been a week of birthday parties, beautiful days, and Isa asking, “when is my birthday, will it be when I wake up?”
Jimmy at the park. He was dying to try the sand and wood chips.
He got irritated when I knocked it out of his hands and swept my finger through his mouth to clean out the sand.
Jimmy’s favorite part of the park is a toss up between the swing and the slide.
Jimmy on the slide is a scary thing for me since he just lets his body go. He leans forward to get the sliding started and then it’s just a ride with no worries.
Isa had fun at the park too and loved sliding with Jimmy
Isa being silly in the sandpit.
Isa woke up at 5am on her birthday. It was a real joy! She opened up a lot of presents before 6am.
Jimmy enjoyed watching Isa open her gifts and all of her happiness.
After a generous helping of pancakes with chocolate chips, Isa went to school, and Jimmy and I were left alone to prepare for her party and birthday dinner. We went to the store to stock up on goods and Jimmy laughed the entire time. I kept expecting him to pass out from all the laughter but he has a never ending cup of smiles and good times.
Isa walked in from school and saw some balloons and just about fell over with excitement. It’s so fun to get Isa presents because she LOVES them all so much. She asked, “did you get these “a” balloon for me” and then needed to know where they were purchased. She is such a girl and loves balloons,chocolate, and flowers.
Uncle Jonny stopped by with a gift from himself and his fiance, Lisa!!! Just saying! Isa very loved it very much! When I asked her to pose she went and grabbed the balloons for the photo. PS thank you Aunt Leticia and Uncle Nathan for her birthday dress. The dress I got her barely got a glance. Sigh.
Then we went to the park for a small party with a few close friends and neighbors. It was the kind of party I like to throw. At the park there was a huge tree stump and all the girls tried to climb it. Then they started a new and exclusive club! jk
Then they were off to the swing. I have never seen Isa on a tire swing before. It was cool that she went on it. She is getting so old and brave! When I walked up to the girls they were screaming silly words to each other.
One thing that made this party more fun was Jimmy had therapy at the park during the party. It was kind of like free babysitting. Jimmy played on all the equipment with his therapist. Here he is on the middle of a big see saw and Maguire is helping by making it go up and down. It was a great way to work his core while having fun.
We sang Happy Birthday and lit the candles seconds before Isa and the wind blew them out. Sadly, I only got one picture of this. Thank you Mommies for helping me hand out cake and clean up.
After cake at the park we went home and grilled (or should I say, Papa Jeph grilled) some hot dogs and hamburgers.
Aunt Tessa is here!
Her birthday celebration continues with her great friend Eloise. Isa’s only wish was to have a sleepover. Although, she was disappointed she could only invite one friend, she was/is very excited about it. The two girls are currently watching Me, Eloise. Then it will be bedtime. Cross your fingers for two tired girls!
