The sun rose and the morning birds could be heard heralding it's arrival. They busied themselves preparing for their day ahead. The little man slept. We rose and pottered about in the cool morning air. Tables were set, lovingly prepared decorations were hung to create a sea scape amongst our garden foliage, baskets of wooden blocks were laid out on a rug for our younger friends, this and that was checked. He still slept...such is his way.
In his own time his melodious babble could be heard and we finally greeted our birthday boy. Presents were opened and new friends were introduced. His gentleness, his serenity, all that we hold so very dear in him seemed all the more apparent on his special day as those sea blue eyes took in all the wonder around him.
A turtle cake of his very own, a bounty of thoughtful gifts, gentle touches, giant smiles, misty eyes.
A beautiful day marking not only his first birthday but that of his Great Granddad's. He has ninety years on our little man.
When the last well wisher had departed we put this boy of ours to bed. He slept for three hours and woke to find his world back the way he knows it best. We delighted in each other that afternoon and felt so very blessed to have shared our day with so many loved ones and friends.
Our baby boy is one and we love him to the the moon and the stars and the sun.....and back.
We gave Remy a beautiful Steiner doll from Dragonfly Toys and added some new gorillas to our collection of Schleich animals. Thanks K for the gorgeous party picture of us together.
And I'd love you to enter my thank-you giveaway over here.
