We made the most of our day on Friday and celebrated 365 days of Liam in lots of fun ways. We woke up to our smiley boy and popped him in the Boba for a quick walk for some iced coffee. Then we went to our playground that is a few blocks from our house. All the climbing and sliding must have worn the birthday boy out cause when we got back, he napped for almost 4 hours! I took the opportunity to bake his birthday cake, finish some weeding and take a nap of my own.
Once he woke up, we drove over to Coronado beach and explored. We went to Sunset Park where they have an off leash dog area so we’ll definitely be back. Unfortunately we were an hour too early for sunset and left before traffic got too bad. Liam got to Facetime with my parents (Nana & Grandpa) which they all loved. Then we went out for a celebratory dinner at a Thai place my mom and I celebrated my birthday a month ago.
When we got home, we did cake and presents. Liam was funny with his smash cake. He didn’t really know what to make of it so he smeared the frosting around a lot and licked it off his hands. Towards the end he did get a few bites of cake. Then we opened birthday cards and one present from Ryan & I.
Liam is such a joy to everyone he meets and especially to those who love him the most. He has forever changed me. I feel so blessed to be his Mom, to help him through this journey of life and to learn more about myself than I ever thought possible. I honestly never knew how big my heart could become.
We are so thrilled to be here in San Diego and have spent the past week not only unpacking and setting up, but exploring the city and trying new restaurants and enjoying our private outside space. House tour is in the near future!
