Henry’s big celebration for his 2nd birthday took place at Washington Market Park today. Many of his friends from daycare and other walks of life attended. Mark and I felt it was a success. Henry wore himself out eating watermelon, running around shirtless, yelling and opening gifts once we returned home.
Henry’s birthday is today. If the first two years go this fast, he will be a teenager in no time. As his mother, I will continue to feel nostalgia every September 5th, while his anticipation for his birthday will grow when he learns what it means.
Today, we had a short celebration with cake and asked Gabe and Jake to come help sing Happy Birthday. Tomorrow, we will have his party with his friends in the park (crossing our fingers that it does not rain).
