Iggy turns 2!

It has been a really busy month!

Not only was Roma born, we also had jeremy's birthday, the start of school and  Iggy's 2nd birthday!

It did  pass quietly, but we the family made it pretty special for him.

Iggy loves cake! Almost as much as ice cream and jelly. And would much prefer these sweet treats over big expensive presents, and with Iggy being the 3rd child we have most toy categories covered! So our present to Iggy was a cake and Jelly extravaganza.

Iggy loves to cook, so he helped me make the cupcakes and Hero and i did most of the decorating the night before. I wish i had a picture of his face when he first saw the tiered cup cake stand filled with cup cakes! He could hardly contain his excitement. He had a great dance that he would do every time Banjo said "Birthday Cake"!

But i did get a photo of him blowing out the candle! What a classic! 

Happy 2nd Birthday Iggy!

Banjo started school this week, and it was an easy transition, one he absolutely  enjoyed and one we loved watching.

Banjo was ultimately ready for school, and in fact needed to go. I was unable to mentally stimulate him at home anymore, and this was fast becoming an issue at the end of last year with him miss behaving due to boredom.

I did have to fight back some tears, but it was easy to do, due to his excitment and enthusiasm.

I think your child starting school is a Mum's first step to slowly letting go. Letting go of control and testing if your first 5 years of parenting has been successful enough for them to thrive and socially navigate themselves without your guidance.

I must admit i felt a little nervous about this, (remember this post !?) But i have faith that I have done my job, now i need to sit back and watch him learn when to put these attributes in place.
