Week 5 – Ellis’ Birthday.
Well, I am now the proud owner of a 2 year old! Last weekend was Ellis’ 2nd birthday and I can’t believe this time 2 years ago I was sat on the maternity ward with a newborn baby! The day was filled with family, friends and cake! As Ellis’ birthday is quite near christmas, he really does seem to have got the hang of opening presents! I just hope he doesn’t think this happens every month! He got lovely presents consisting of cars, books, chocolate, clothes, a pretend lawn mower, a train and a cash register. I did notice a trend that the grand-parent always give the noisiest toys!
Since we moved into our new home last summer, we have started to measure Ellis’ height. It was always something my Grandma use to do with me and my cousins at birthdays. I think its great to keep this record and it’ll be even better when the new addition can join in too. Ellis loves having to stand with his feet together, against the wall and see how bigger he is now, although he was standing on his tip toes as one point! Little cheeky monkey, he’s already trying to cheat the system!
