Mr. Thomas was spoiled rotten with birthday gifts – great books, blocks, a tool bench, pool toys, and lots of sports equipment for our sports addict. He was completely thrilled and completely overstimulated – but he now has lots to keep him busy this summer.
The next morning was Father’s Day and Tom’s real birthday, and as it was also my last day with Mr. B home to help out, I insisted that he sleep in so that I could attempt to do mornings with both kids. And Nell cooperated so well that we even got pancakes made for my two favorite boys (the idea for Thomas’s 2 shaped pancake was 100% stolen from Leah’s birthday tradition with Isaac).
Thomas loves numbers and letters – we have to stop and discuss pretty much every letter and number we see while we’re out and about – so he was pretty dang excited about having food shaped like a 2. I’m going to have to figure out how to make vegetables into letters and numbers.
After breakfast, we headed to the pool where Nell and I parked under the pergola in the shade and took pictures of the boys we were celebrating that day.
And we spent the rest of the day doing what T and B love most – watching golf (poor Jim Furyk) and playing sports.
