Finn's Birthday

I've been up since 5:30am.
Wrenny was hungry. But as she easily dozed off, I was kept awake by thoughts of the events of this day some 2 years ago....
Early morning having tea and contactions with Mike and our midwives as the sun rose and our excitement grew at our baby's iminent arrival..a drive the hospital, a surprised c-section, Nana arriving at the hospital before Finn and the great relief when my firstborn son lay wrapped and ruddy, exausted we, in my arms. Those first days of complete overwhelming and exhaustion, Nana's caretaking, visits by Pops and then Irene, Monika and Richard, Papa and Annemarie and Shari. Can it be that a helpless bundle of arms, legs, bald head and healthy cry could turn into this robust, spirited, witty, chatty and beautiful sunshine of a boy I get to love and take care of!

We celebrated Finn's birthday in a big kids room at our church.
Finn and Nana and Mike went to Walmart to get photos taken in Finn's "birday" shirt while Wrenny amd I went to the church to set up a little. Wrenny slept in the nursery and was ready to party when the first guests arrived.

So here are a few shots of the party.
Complete wih teddybear cake, musical pillows and dance, crafts and kids unsure about such activities!!

Looks like a great party! How did it go? I just sent an e-card to Finn. Man, do I wish we were close enough to hop on over for his party.
