It was Felix's second birthday on Saturday. I think with us eagerly awaiting Iris's arrival it sort of crept up on us and was suddenly there - that my baby boy really isn't a baby anymore.
He had a great day and now completely understands the concept of birthdays and the fact that he gets spoilt rotten on them! We haven't taken his birthday banner down yet and every day since he's come downstairs and said "Birthday!" then made a slightly disappointed noise when there are no presents.
He got an absolute truckload of goodies - I have no idea where we're going to put them all. His favourite seems to be a trike bought for him by Andy and Amy, though he can't reach the pedals yet so wants to be pushed around on it all the time. He got loads of great garden stuff, so I hope we get some more good weather for him to use them.
His party was lots of fun - the weather wasn't great but the kiddies didn't mind. Tejon very kindly dried the slide with the seat of his dungarees, and the rest of them got rather wet and muddy while the parents huddled indoors and under the gazebo. Felix was a little overwhelmed at first but soon loved being the centre of attention and managed to go all day without even a hint of a strop - good going considering he didn't have a nap!
His presents lasted him well into the next day, and we're still eating fairy cakes today, so all in all a good weekend! I'm exhausted though!
