My Morris is five!

Tuesday, April 19, 2016

My baby turned five this week, and it's been a good one. 

On Wednesday night we made cloud & rainbow themed gift bags for his classmates. On Thursday (his birthday) he brought them into school along with sprinkle donuts. When he got home from school we had a new bike and helmet waiting for him outside and we practiced riding it for a bit before grilling dinner. While dinner was grilling he threw pebbles into the air and yelled "SURPRISE!" over and over again, despite our efforts to get him to stop. So, I took pictures instead. 

He has been so excited about turning five. He tells everyone we come in contact with. He also told me to sing him "Happy Birthday" and wish him a happy birthday several times, as well as sing "Happy Birthday to me" about 5 times. This kid is serious about his birthday.

Since about two weeks after his last birthday, Morris saw a rainbow cake with cloud frosting somewhere and immediately decided he would be having a rainbow cake with cloud frosting for his 5th birthday and has stuck with it since. So The Sweetery made his dreams come true. They did an amazing job, as usual. We have ordered cupcakes from them any time we have thrown a birthday party for Morris since his first birthday, because they are hands down the best. 

I made the balloon rainbow for Morris at 10pm the night before his party and it was perfect, but of course a bunch of balloons deflated during the course of the night. :(

Morris's party was great and so many lovely people were there. 

When it came time to blow out his candles, they would not blow out despite all his attempts. I was asked if I had bought trick candles. "Absolutely not!" After checking the packaging, a saw the words "Re-Lighting Candles" and felt awful,  but everyone had a good laugh, including Morris.

After the party a good portion of the evening was spent watching Morris & his friend Evey run through his newly gifted bubble machine with the sun setting in the background. It was a perfect end to a lovely day.

We took Morris to an indoor water park in Lake Geneva on Sunday & Monday and took advantage of the weather and ate and played lakeside. I'm exhausted from celebrating my favorite little dude's existence.
