We decided this year to celebrate the boys’ birthdays (Ian turned 2 on 12/28 and Simon will be 4 on 1/30) with a joint party for both of them. Because of scheduling conflicts, we had to celebrate with the Carlson side this week and wait to celebrate with the Moreheads next week. I plan on making the same (awesome) cake, so I’m going to hold off posting pics until we’ve had parts 1 and 2 of the birthday bash. But I couldn’t resist sharing just one.
When Ian heard his name in the Happy Birthday song, he was genuinely surprised and delighted and started laughing. It was such a sweet, innocent moment—one of my favorites in a very good day.
