Samuel's Second 2nd Birthday

For his actual birthday, Samuel had a full day.  He had a doctor's appointment in the morning. He weighed in at 32 lbs and is tall for his age. He had lunch and a nap at Aurel and Diane's, then came back home.

Grant and Bill picked up Chinese food and headed for 47 de la Rivière, arriving shortly after 5:30.  Barbara met Kirk at the NAC and they arrived minutes later. 

As the food was still hot, we sat right down to eat.  Samuel selected a regular chair, but Kirk persuaded him to go in the highchair.  Samuel is a good eater, and especially likes broccoli, so Chinese food is fine with him.  The garlic ribs each contained a "baton", which were fun for him.

Barbara had prepared blueberry lemon muffins before going to work, so one served as an impromptu birthday "gateau" with "feu".  Samuel seemed to enjoy it, but decided to share the second half of his muffin with Boots.

After a clean-up, Barbara got out a favourite toy - bubble wrap.  Kirk helped him break some bubbles in the chair, but it was even more fun to stomp on it on the floor.  Then it was time to test out one of Grandpa's Christmas cookies.

We watched a Becky Mason canoeing DVD which Barbara got for Christmas - he loves "eau" and "bateau". Grant read him a story from the book that Wanda gave him.  Then it was off to bed to try out his new PJs and listen to another story with Karine.  A tired happy boy...
