Se7en + 1 is Two…

September 30th, 2011 · 18 Comments

On on this day two years ago Hood #8 arrived in time for bedtime…


And he changed our lives wonderfully forever…

He set up all his treasures from his treasure drawer for you…


His cars; his dinosaurs; his books and his chocdadile (crocodile)… Not to mention under his arm is his dog that hasn’t left his side since he got it from Aunty Muffin on Monday – a new and very loved treasure!!!


He spent most of today drawing… concentrated detail is not a problem for this young man.

Other things he loves to do: Reading and reading and reading… I fear there may not be enough books in the world for this boy who has always been able to sit quietly and listen to a story. He loves to hunt for dogs and cakes in books, playing on his father persons iPad… Digging: dig, dig, digging – the beach is just his best outing!!! He loves singing… and sings a lot… he as a great repertoire!!! And he loves dancing to Bob the Builder.

Today he received his first present in living memory – for his “Happy Birthday”… and spent a long time just holding it!!!

But he soon got the hank of it!!!

And now he has a place to park his car collection, and his dinosaurs… and I noticed a few of his all time favorites: pirates, sneaked into the garage too!!

Happy Birthday, Captain Cuddles, we love you so much and hope you have a brilliant year full of adventures and fun and wonder!!!
