good morning my beautiful son
Lily crowns you and bethrones you in bed and brings you your few gifts to help you open…
you are quietly pleased
breakfast is simply porridge but accompanied by some new play things. thankyou family, well chosen compact quality toys…
Lily adores you and invents funny games to make us all laugh
later in the day after the markets, we drive to a beautiful creek and meet friends
it is oh so peaceful by the fire and the water
you are contented to play on your own and I watch you in your own amusement and watch your big eight year old sister teach our friend to knitwe eat simply but happilythe nature at the beautiful Shannonvale creek has me breathless
reflections on cool water like an impressionist painting
an endless meditation to watch the rippling mirror
before bed we light your candles and sing our birthday medley of songs
you look so pleased in a happy quiet way
you have had your first haircut ever today!
you look different my son
your face makes new expressions
my how you have grown little one
you love the moment, as we all do, gathered around you singing in the candlelight
Lily helps you blow them out as you cannot yet
you love it so much we have to do it again, and again
we all love it and you too
we have our yummy birthday celebration the next day in the park at Port Douglas
As its your birthday Cedar i let you eat the pancakes straight from the pan
