This afternoon, after Emily got home from school, the girls and I went round to Mum and Dad's for birthday tea and cake. Kay, Theresa, Tyler and Alyssa were also there and Tyler was in top form ;o)
He helped (Great) Grandma open her presents and handed the torn off wrapping paper to (Great) Grandpa who was standing close by for just that purpose.
Here he was telling Grandma all about how her mug had come from his breaking workshop - ie. a shop with breakables (I think). He had lots to say about this and how careful you had to be in that workshop. It was really sweet!
His next task was to help Grandma blow out her birthday candles (a few times ;o) ). When we finished singing happy birthday to her and were doing the Hip Hip Hooray part, he took over saying Hip Hip and everyone else had to say Hooray! It makes me realise he's growing up, he's not our baby anymore.
Mum had found some puzzles that my children had when they were little and had brought them out for Tyler. He lay on the floor placing the right shapes on the pictures and really seemed to enjoy it.
Another picture to put the shapes on.
Alyssa, on the other hand, slept in her carseat, through virtually the whole thing.
I had said she would wake just as we had to leave and sure enough, she did! I stayed a few minutes longer to get some photos of her in her cute little outfit.
