3 Years Ago Today
He's still very definite about things, and insists on order. Perhaps I should've expected that when he came exactly on his due date. This morning when he awoke, we got out his presents. He opened the first one, and would've happily just talked about it and not opened the others for some time had C not tried to get them. Then he decided to go ahead and open more presents. After presents we had pancakes for breakfast, and then got ready for Mass. I'd promised him we could light a votive candle at Mass for his birthday. All the priests greeted him, and we got the candle and then sat down for Mass. He was very attentive to the prayers. After Mass, Fr David mentioned that it was K's birthday, and everyone clapped - K responded by screaming. He really isn't fond of lots of clapping since it's out of the ordinary. He did go and talk to Fr David afterwards, though, so all was well.
So now we're back home, and he's watching Star Trek: Voyager. Later we'll eat French onion soup, Brie, and homemade baguettes, at his request. We'll also make fairy cakes together. Sounds like a good birthday to me. Happy birthday, my sweet, funny, clever boy.
