an almost half birthday

in the months leading up to his fourth birthday, finn decided he wanted to go to new brunswick to celebrate. jeff and i tried to make it happen, but the timing just wasn't right, so we broke the news to finn and though he was a little bummed, he got over it once he realized all his vancouver friends wouldnt be able to join us there.

over skype one evening with jeff parents, finn again explained that he wanted to celebrate his birthday in new brunswick, to which jeff's mom sweetly replied that we could celebrate his special day whenever we were together next.

and now, 5 months later on a long drive back to my parents house one evening, finn started spewing elaborate detail about his upcoming birthday party in new brunswick. it took me a moment to figure out what he was talking about, but i eventually remembered - my son has the memory of elephant and never forgets anything. ever. especially if it involves treats or presents or a celebration of some kind.

and so, an 'an almost half birthday' celebration is being planned. requests have been made for rainbow coloured balloons, a confetti sprinkle birthday cake (that he saw over my shoulder on pinterest one day and declared to be 'the most awesomist cake ever!'), and he wants to ask his cousin lily to make balloon animals. he recites his guest list daily and loves to tell everyone that will listen he is turning 5 soon.

life with this wild boy is never dull.
