Eleanor was hilarious while having it done:
At four, James is still our little boy. He has a delightful turn of phrase, and a vocabulary which is pure 21st century. Listening to his conversation with Ella in the car today was hysterical! James is the cuddliest little boy around and a sensitive little soul, but he's also full of energy and mischief.
He is still besotted with pink, purple, fairies, butterflies, tutus, sparkles.... so I was pleased to find this bike for him; pale blue with just a few touches of pink - enough to satisfy his pink cravings for now, and hopefully not too much if his tastes change in a couple of years. The doll's seat on the back is perfect for Bec.
This evening both sets of grandparents came with presents, cake, party poppers and balloons.
And there were phonecalls and cards, too. Here he is telling Aunty 'Net about his day:
And tonight I've been icing chocolate cupcakes with pink frosting swirls and 'fairy dust' for him to take to child care tomorrow. I've packed them into my lovely new cupcake courier and keep popping into the kitchen to gloat over it's practicality.
As I ws getting him ready for bed tonight, he announced he'd like to stay four forever. I figure it must've been a good day!
Happy 4th Birthday James!
