I’ve thought about Payson’s birthday lots of times during the past two months or so. I debated doing something really cool for his birthday. And then sometimes I thought maybe we’ll just keep it super simple with cake and presents.
I was still debating this this past Friday when I suddenly realized that his birthday wasn’t just coming up soon, it was Sunday!! I didn’t realize it would get here so fast!! So a super simple birthday it was!
In the morning the girls watched a movie while Allan painted and I took Payson to the store for a balloon and a few other things. He was really happy about getting a balloon. He walked proudly through the store with it, holding it up to people we passed, “moon! moon!” and they’d smile and nod. He spent so much time looking up at the balloon floating above his head that he almost ran into things several times. I had to steer him around. lol
When we got home I went and wrapped his presents while Allan played with all three kids in the other room.
We put a present in front of him and he just looked at the wrapping paper (that he picked out!) and didn’t realize he could open it until we pulled a part of the paper away and he caught a glimpse of the toy inside. At that point he was all about tearing the paper away!
Besides cars and balls and the typical boy stuff he is really into puzzles right now. He loves anything with pieces to be put together.
I also got him several books because he’s also really into books. He will sit and listen to me read books over and over. I got him some touch and feel books and some books with hand puppets, he was really excited about those!
We taught him to say “two” and hold up two fingers. He loves to shout out two but hasn’t quite gotten how to hold up only two fingers.
We went outside for a water fight next.
How old are you?
After the water fight we came in for cake! (Gluten and dairy free but tasty!)
And after cake we had a BBQ. Don’t ask me why we did the cake first!
And then yesterday after church I tried to get some pictures with the little birthday boy. He loves doing this but never smiles at the camera!
