Wishing our favourite Scotty a very happy 26th birthday. :)! We started the day with presents, as every birthday should! Jack was a fabulous participant and delivered Daddy's gift alone without any assistance which was adorable. I did peek in to get their hug captured :) We got Daddy "From the Earth to the Moon" an HBO series we are IN LOVE with and have a very old copy. It will be re watched shortly!
Jack was less than helpful in decorating because he just wanted to tear everything down and pop every balloon. While I decorated Scotty's office with birthday signs, balloons and streamers Jack watched "Belly Breathe" on YouTube which I highly recommend - its adorable and applicable for all ages haha. Jack sings it randomly during the day and I hope the message sticks with him. Thankfully it drew his attention away from the balloons long enough for me to put up signs and streamers. I do love birthdays :)
After work Scotty and Jack watched videos of Jack (a favourite pastime of Jack's) and one particularly hilarious one of Jack talking in the grocery store about buying Daddy a cake. It was a great chance for these two to catch each other up on their day, since Jack and I were in Wolfville at a library playgroup and saw his favourite nesting pigeons Jack had a lot to tell!
And we bought him a cake! Jack blew out the candles three times while we tried to get a posed pic of them with the cake, so it was just time to stay true to the moment and capture the action shot. I am not sure where he learned to blow out candles with such gusto, but I think I have Elmo's World: Birthdays to thank.
Jack adored the chocolate fudge cake... And can we blame him?
