Yes, you read that right. Our dearest, sweetest Magnifying Glass is celebrating his 6th birthday today!
A little history on this one.....Ezra has a toy magnifying glass that he loves with all his heart. For about a week now, he's been treating it like his best friend (or perhaps long, lost brother?). They have conversations, play games & go everywhere together.
Yesterday Ezra proclaimed quite loudly, "Tomorrow is Magnifying Glass's birthday! He's going to be 6 years old!!" He immediately started planning the festivities. He found Simone's teeny tooth fairy box and placed a marble inside as a gift. For the rest of the evening he made sure none of us spilled the beans about the present & regularly told us to "shhhh" if we mentioned it.
Last night I read books to Z & MG before bed & they peacefully drifted off to sleep, side-by-side....
First thing this morning, Ezra wanted to decorate the house! MG wasn't awake yet so we had to put streamers around the living and make pictures. Sadly, I was a bit tired for this activity but Kaiya helped with the decorations and Magnifying Glass was very surprised.
The big celebration came at breakfast with our normal birthday tradition....we joyously sang Happy Birthday over a candle-lit bowl of oatmeal.
Ezra helped Magnifying Glass blow out his candle and we were all
thrilled to participate in such a momentous occasion.
Happy Birthday, Magnifying Glass!
