Happy Birthday Sebastian!

Today number 2 turns 2. He celebrated by waking up about an hour earlier than usual, at 5am. This slightly dampened mum and dad’s enthusiasm for present opening, especially as we’d been up until midnight making his cake. But Joaquim was very gracious, “Look, Sebastian, presents!” and offered generous assistance in tearing open the wrapping paper (“But I’m just helping…”). Joaquim’s birthday is in one week, but as it’s hard to wait even that long when you’re only nearly four, he too got one small consolation present to keep him going.

How he looked then

We set off for nursery with Sebastian delighted clutching his new school rucksack, emblazoned with Sally and Lighting McQueen (“Car! Ka-tow! Ka-tow!”), which is nearly as big as he is, and a rather wonky, pale-blue, Smarties-decorated plane cake on the passenger seat. The boys were very impressed with the cake, thanks to their not very advanced years; it looks best from a distance, although I felt the silver-ball swirly S’s on its back and tail fin were a nice touch. Hope nobody chokes on one.

How he looks now (he's the one without the visible body hair).
