In true Noah style, he pretty much slept his entire 10th birthday away. I'm not surprised as he did the same thing last year, but some days he is awake more than others so I was hoping he was going to be a bit more awake today.
Aaron's parents came to visit after lunch and Noah woke up just before they left and got to see what present they bought him before they left.
Later in the afternoon all of my family came for tea (except Chrish). We made it our 'monthly' family tea even though we have seen the family three times already this month! Aaron made Noah's cake this afternoon which was really yummy.
So yummy that Kobe got it everywhere - including all over his nice white teddy!
It was also Dad's 59th birthday. I always feel sorry for Dad as he gets a bit forgotten since Noah has celebrated the same birthday for the past ten years. He doesn't seem to mind though.
It's nice having a bigger house now and having everyone over for tea.
We got through a few of them before he decided he had been awake long enough, and went back to sleep!
He did actually wake up again so we could have the cake and blow out the candles.
video clip I made for Noah's birthday on the computer.
He had tears streaming down his cheeks as he watched it and he came over to me later for a hug. The rest of the night he just laid down next to Noah, wanting to spend some more time with him.
Noah has been with us for so long now that you just forget how amazing it is that he is still here with us. I think the clip just reminded Jay that we aren't sure how many more birthdays we will get to celebrate with him. We hope there are many, many more (and hopefully he will be more awake next year!).
