(Here we are sharing/counting UP Forty Days and Forty Nights of our lives, our last on the inner-west side of town and, eventually, some of our first on the other (far) side of town, where we envisage some big changes coming our way. Thanks for joining us as we remember, celebrate and experience gratitude for our time here, and sometimes feel completely overwhelmed and exhausted by the changes underway!)
We've had a busy birthday weekend so I'm cutting myself some slack and combining two days in this count 'up'. It's been a wonderful celebration of all things Rafael, where owls and diggers featured heavily, along with cake and cuddles, of course! After a morning at home sharing a special breakfast and some gift opening, we ventured to my sister's where we spent a wonderful day with family.
And tonight when the birthday lad and his doting sister were tucked in bed and sound asleep, their Dada and I sat and looked back through photos of Rafa's first days, read the little midwife summary of his delivery (4.335 kg - goodness me!), looked over his special birth book and felt very grateful for his arrival in our world. What a blessing.
So much to share of wonderful home-made gifts but for now, at the end of this fun-filled weekend, I need sleep so, see you on Halloween! (our pumpkin carving began today!).
