Lion's pirate birthday party was last Sunday. I think all of the kids had a good time. Lion was a little shy. Being the center of attention unnerved him, which is surprising, to say the least. I thought that boy thrived on attention! When it came time to blow out his candle, he made me do it. I did, because everyone was waiting, but I felt a bit silly.
Lion opened his presents at the party, but he opened the gifts from Jonathan and I after dinner that night. We got him a Bat-Cave with Bat-Man and Robin and a Joker. I don't even know how he knows who Bat-Man is, but that is what he circled in the Toys R Us catalog so that is what we got him!
This picture is my favorite picture from the entire day. I took it at the exact moment when he had torn the wrapping paper and realized his present was the Bat-Cave:
He was just starting to say, "Ohhhhhh, my gosh! Are you kidding me?"
Happy birthday, Little Lion Man! Thanks for an amazing four years...
