We started Isaac's birthday with a special birthday breakfast which Isaac of course couldn't eat. I let J use the camera and she took this lovely shot of Isaac and then without even realising it - she came over to talk to me as I was cooking and just nudged the camera - this rather nice shot of the bacon cooking. We had bacon, pancakes and maple syrup as you can see on the next photo of Isaac opening his presents.
Hannah came over and had breakfast with us too.
We bought Isaac a car with the money from relatives. It's just the right size for him to sit on and will go well in the playroom of our new house which will have splashes of red and a slightly retro look. Isaac is trying to sign car, copying J in the second shot.
In the afternoon, Joe and Abi and Sam and Anika came for afternoon tea. Life has been so hectic that Isaac only had a shop bought cake for his birthday cake. He didn't seem to mind and I have promised him that if he learns to eat after his operation then next year I will make him a fantastic cake!
Joyful and Triumphant
