    The Year Of Unicorn Cakes

    Birthday cakes are a very important part of birthday celebrations in our family. My mum always made sure I had a birthday cake on my birthday. With Ethan being non-verbal for so many years this visual marker of a birthday became even more important to me. Sometimes this means that there maybe a few birthday cakes purchased for the children’s birthdays. This all depends on the days of their birthday, if they have a party and when our family gathering is. This year for our family gathering birthday cakes both children picked unicorn cakes. Ethan’s Unicorn Cake Ethan is very into minions again. Well they have never really fallen out…

    Happy Birthday Little E

    Happy Birthday Little E, I can’t believe you are three today. We celebrated your birthday on Sunday as Daddy was at work this morning. You opened your cards and presents this afternoon when Ethan came home from school. This morning I showed you your baby photos. You told me they were Ethan at first and you were Ethan’s double. For me looking at those photos it felt like a lifetime ago but it’s only been a few short years. It took me a while to get my head around that we had been blessed with a little girl. I always wanted a daughter and I never believed them when they…

    The Tale Of The Three Birthday Cakes

    May is Ethan’s birthday month and this year he definitely celebrated in style. With Ethan’s birthday being a school day we decided to celebrate on the Sunday before. We had a small gathering with his grandparents at home before his soft play party with his friends. They also have a celebration snack at school to mark the children’s birthdays. This meant that Ethan was a very lucky boy as he had three birthday cakes. Ethan’s first birthday cake was presented during our home celebration. My mum is very good at cake making and she always makes us birthday cakes. It was a chocolate birthday cake with strawberries and cream. As always…

    Happy Birthday Beautiful Boy, Seven Today!

    Dear Ethan, Happy Birthday, today you turn seven! Seven feels so far away from that little bundle placed in my arms seven years ago but you are still very much my baby. You are our amazing little boy and you have come so far over the past year. You enjoy school and they have helped to bring on your speech and the words you know. You are learning to read which has been helped with your passion for logos and signs. You have discovered car logos on you tube and can now name every car that we pass. You have started to ask me about your friends which is why…

    Ethan’s Birthday at the Beach

    We had lots of discussion this year about how we would celebrate Ethan’s birthday. We were unsure if there should be a party with his school friends or if it should be more low-key. During this time we were offered the chance to have the beach hut for the day again at Clacton-on-Sea. Knowing how much Ethan loves visiting the sea we thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate his birthday. Being used to early starts, Ethan was able to open all of his birthday presents at home and we still made it down to the beach whilst it was fairly clear. We took full advantage of this…
