Although it’s not quite the one year anniversary of EzraZoe blog, we are getting near to it. And my very first blog post was one on Ezra’s birthday — so when Ezra turned 6 last Saturday, I couldn’t help but think of these photos and how big he and his friends (and sister) have grown since only last summer! This year Ezra wanted to do something low key and intimate for his birthday – and we were so happy to oblige. On the night before his 6th birthday we poured over his ‘5th Birthday Book’ that I made for him last summer, and talked about how much he’s grown. I made him cupcakes with cars on top (still an Ezra favorite) after putting he and Zoe to sleep, and got his gifts ready for the next morning. He was so excited to wake to his special solar panel gift in the morning — yes, he’s obsessed with solar power lately and plans on designing solar powered cars when he grows up. What curiosity will be next?
Just a tip – to make the best ongoing gift for your kid’s birthday simply print out photos from birth on, staple them together and write something memorable (or simple) on each page. It’s a gift that kids never tire of … a book about themselves!
