Erik's birthday pics...

Yeah, this is photos from Erik's birthday, but I just had to start with the intense gaze of my littlest man...

Ok, so here's my handsome birthday boy with the present from his brothers - a Smiggle giftcard (just what he asked for!)...

Luey and his Mini-Me...

Mum and Dad's present was a hit! "Awesome!" he said, "Totally NOT what I was expecting!" (that's right folks, he was expecting his parents to get some injured lego set, like maybe Lego City, yk, because we're clueless and didn't pick up on the MILLION, erm, subtle, hints)...

"See, I get this COOL thing that you don't have and will never have a hope of ever getting... Better take a long look because after this you'll never get within 50ft of this item ever again..." Ah, yes, brotherly love...

Bryn, coping quite well with yet another brother having a birthday this fortnight - only five weeks until his birthday - that's not long, is it?

Can you see Dave thinking, 'I reckon this one ought to take him AT LEAST two hours of quiet concentration to build, two WHOLE HOURS of silence, BOOYEAH!'

A couple of hundred or so teensy tiny blocks of joy! I'll post a pic of the find model once he's done with it - he's quite the lego model expert now, puts it together enthusiastically and nimbly. We first realised he had a talent for lego construction when he built a tower of single Duplo which was over 1.5 metres tall before he even turned two. He fine motor and spatial skills were (and continue to be) a wonder to behold!


We went on to spend the day with a great group of women and their kids. Erik spent most of the day on or another computer games (somethng he doesn't get to do at home, so he was in game console heaven!), and then we came home, had dinner and a cake I'd baked last night (will post a pic of that with the pic of the lego fighter). He's excited about going out to spend his Smiggle money and his birthday money from Nanna some time this week (he's already spent it 10x over in his head, rofl)...
