As you know last Friday was James 2nd birthday. So Adam and Gabby picked up James after his nap at daycare and took him to a park for a train ride. Then he got his big birthday present when they returned home. Also being 2 he can now face forward in his car seat! (Sorry this post got long)
Put together while he was at daycare!
On Saturday we went over early evening like we normally do and celebrated his birthday with our social distancing although we did put on masks and had James take us in the house to see his new kitchen.
I believe I mentioned this once before in a post but there was another time when we put on masks and went to look at his bedroom which had been newly decorated from the dinosaurs that were in there for his nursery. A table, chairs and bookcase had been added.
Well when we did that last time he was thrilled we were in the house with him. He immediately wanted to go on the sofa because we would play with him in the corner of the sofa when we babysat.
This time I have no words to explain his excitement, I could just cry he was so happy. (Everyone else in his life he gets to be with, in their bubble, but not us. That's because we are high risk) He squealed running to his bedroom to show us his refrigerator. Then we took a picture with him that I think I will save for Christmas.
He backed away from the candles.
Of course he always tries to sneak down by us!
He opened his presents and we had a nice evening. Adam had recently picked up a small standing light that shines a ghost on the wall. James likes playing with it.
So it was getting dark out and he started shining it on the garage wall outside. I first pretended to be afraid of it and I've never heard him giggle so hard. Then I started chasing after it and the fun continued. I had to take a rest and he kept saying more! Adam caught a picture of me chasing it.....
Then on Sunday he had a party with Gabby's family and possibly some other people. I have a photo of his little bundt cake. I saw a video of them singing happy birthday to him but he turned backwards in the high chair and didn't want anything to do with blowing out the candle.
I texted Adam later to see if he had a good time at his party and he said "yes, but not as much fun as he did with grandma chasing the ghosts the night before!" That made me smile.....
