With his presents before he opened them. Our babysitter gave him 4 goldfish and a small tank and fish food. I think she thought it was so sad that our Lambs didn't have any pets. The Lambs love feeding the fish each morning. Thank you, Graceann!
With the cabaca from Mama and Papa.
Aunt Hannah made Lamb 1 a homemade book. The title is "For the Love of Yellow". It is an alphabet book with each page a different item that is yellow. Lamb 1's favorite color is yellow. She had a really difficult time with "a", but she knew a Russian word for yellow starts with "z". She worked many hours on this homemade gift. Thank you, Aunt Hannah!
Before Lamb 1 could talk, he was probably about 2 1/2, we went to a toy store with Ram's parents. Grandma said Lamb 1 could pick out a Thomas toy for a treat. She meant an engine or maybe a small piece. We had just begun the whole Thomas adventure and we only owned a little track from when Ram was a boy (Brio is compatible) and a few engines at the time. Lamb 1 couldn't even talk and he immediately pointed that he wanted a roundhouse. Grandpa was with us and he declared right away that our Lambs would have to be much older before he was going to pay for a roundhouse! (I think it is the most expensive Thomas piece they sell.) Lamb 1 couldn't even talk and he remembered that day in the toy store. When he would write Christmas wish lists he would always skip asking for a roundhouse because he knew Grandpa said he had to be much older.
Grandma decided she better buy the roundhouse now before Lamb 1 outgrew his interest in Thomas. So Grandpa told Grandma that age 6 was old enough to buy a roundhouse. All 3 Lambs played with it for a long time this morning. I encouraged them to build a track around the roundhouse, but they were too interested in playing with the roundhouse to do that. Thank you Ram's parents, for the roundhouse!
This is a puzzle with a track for a windup car. Pretty clever toy that Lamb 1 really liked.
Lamb 1 went to the eye doctor for a check up today. He did well today. The Dr. said he would not be surprised if at next year's checkup that Lamb 1 needs glasses. But he was fine today.
Aunt Hannah made spinach dip and Ram made guacamole this afternoon. We ate that and everyone was pretty full plus it was getting late. So we decided to have Lamb 1's birthday meal that he requested (Indian food-dal) tomorrow instead of tonight. Aunt Hannah was not looking forward to dal so she wasn't disappointed with this change of plans. After the chips and dips we had cake and the rainbow sherbet that Lamb 1 requested.
