Our little boy turned 5 today! Wow! Not so little anymore.
He was so excitied about turning five, oh yes, he's been counting down for about 3 months. It's been marked on the calendar and the days have been crossed off. High expectations for this day, and long present wish-lists.
I have been told, that when you turn five your teeth fall out and then that means you can drive a car. Also that when you turn five you can read, and write, instantly, he's been practising his writing on and off all day (a collection of letters he know's how to draw in different orders and then I have to tell him what they say).
GG came to stay from Australia so of course Liam was thoroughly spoiled by his adoring grandmother :) who helped to make all his birthday wishes and expectations come true :).
(Including and most importantly the requested quad bike shirt which she had to have custom made after searching for about three months for one).
He decided about a month ago that we were going to go go-karting for his birthday, we had to write it down so that we would not forget. (We drove smaller ones than this but unfortunately I didn't get any photos as I had to be Isla's driver lady, she was just a little bit scared). Liam couldn't get enough, it was quite hard to get him to leave.
Cake is a must, of course, for birthdays, and somehow this boy managed to get two this time around. And jelly, for dinner tonight, apparently you have to have jelly on your birthday.
So he's gone to bed tonight tired, and full, and happy and surrounded by special new things and birthday love and wishes.
Happy birthday our dear sweet Liam boy.
