He had such a fun day (even though he didn't get any presents) and loved all the attention he got.
All day Leo kept asking when we were going to "go to Jay's birthday."
He could not even comprehend a birthday without a party.
Even though we didn't have an official party, we partied all day long.
Starting with singing "Happy Birthday" 10 times in a row.
Every time I finished Jay would say, "Again."
After 10 I cut him off and we went to the pool with some of our friends.
*Stopped by the store for some delicious (cheap) donuts.
(He was really, really happy with all the attention.)
*Picked up a birthday balloon that Jay was a little bit terrified of.
(Every time we go to the store Jay gets very excited about the balloons, so I thought he would really like having one. Instead it totally freaked him out, He liked it as long as Leo was holding it and he could look at it without touching it.)
*Went to dinner on the wharf and sat at a table with a view of the bay.
Jay's favorite part was the soda, of course.
*And finished up with treats from the candy shop next to the restaurant.
Leo is really into hiding lately. The other day he grabbed my sweater off the ground and used it to hide under. Jay wanted to play too, but he did not make a very good choice as far as camouflage goes.
We've been sick around here a couple of times now this month so we've been finding boys asleep all over the place.
This particular day Leo decided that he didn't need a nap. Since he wasn't too cranky I said he could stay up and watch a movie instead. A few minutes into it he came into the office looking for a blanket because he was cold. He grabbed a towel off the floor and made do. A few minutes later I offered him a pillow, just so he could watch TV more comfortably. He was out within 5 minutes.
A few nights ago Ty and the boys were asleep and I was watching Dr. Who on the computer. Jay was in bed with Ty and Leo was asleep in his room. I heard Leo get up and move in with Ty, and then I heard Jay fussing a little, but he stopped and I didn't think anything of it. When I went to get into bed Jay was not there, but I figured Ty had moved him back to his bed. Nope. He wasn't there either. He had wandered downstairs in the dark and made himself comfortable on the couch.
