It’s the week of birthday parties. Saturday night started it off, with my co-worker Ann’s joint birthday party with a couple of her friends. Unfortunately most of my other friends weren’t there as it’s the school break, but I did get to hang out with my old boss for a bit while Oliver played then slept. The party was full of adults and 6-10 year olds running around and screaming so it wasn’t necessarily our scene.

Today was Katie’s first birthday (Oliver’s second cousin, I just figured that out by going here), and I headed down to St Albans with Mark’s family for that. It was more kiddies running amok, but a little closer to his age. Katie had a gorgeous dress on that she soon covered in chocolate. She tried to wake Oliver up when we got there:

And then the family fussed over him:

And there’s more family fussing to come as it’s Mark’s mum’s birthday on Friday so we have lunch out with them for that, and then Mark and his sister will join us all for dinner in the evening.

It’s tiring all these parties. Luckily he’s starting to watch tv chronically like his parents, so he can chill and do that at home.

PS – Oliver and I are flying into Toronto 2nd July and returning 2 weeks later. We’re staying with my parents in Oshawa for the most part (but for the middle Friday to Monday when we’ll be in Ottawa) so I hope that many of you canucks reading this will come and see us! I can’t really afford to rent a car so we aren’t going to be too mobile.

    Emma – Oliver is as beautiful as ever! He looks more alert and aware of things around him than he was 2 weeks ago. I miss holding him, can’t wait for July.
