Default Little O's Special Day

A couple of you have been kind enough to ask me how my Little O is doing these days, so I thought I'd let you all know it was his birthday today! He turned the impressive age of FOUR.

We are having an amazing party for him tomorrow, with a Rock Star theme. His invitations were real CDs with his favourite music on them, in proper CD cases designed to look like an actual album. There was a fabulous album cover on the front designed by a friend of mine, photos of the "artist", and a track listing on the back. It was so cool.

He is learning to walk, and can go for short distances by himself now (less than 10 feet). He doesn't talk but makes plenty of noise, and is definitely the best dancer in the family. He still eats by tube and nothing by mouth, except for Cheetos, which he will hold in his hand and take little licks of until they go soggy. He still has many, many health problems and we see many specialists, but he's come so far since he was born and I'm so proud of him. He's awesome.

Thanks everyone, for asking about him. It's been a rollercoaster of a journey with him so far, but he's totally worth it. Happy Birthday Little O!

Lil O rules!

The amazing progress he has made is because of the amazing parents he has

Happy Birthday to a wonderfully brave and determined little man xxxx

Happy birthday little O, have a grand day.

The party sounds amazing but now I feel like a totally inferior mother. If I recall correctly, on my kids' 4th birthdays, I turned out a few dried, curling ham sandwiches, a cheese and pineapple hedgehog and a newspaper pass the parcel

I am the world's worst parent for every single holiday/special occasion EXCEPT birthdays. I am obsessed with them. I couldn't give a sh.t about Christmas or Easter, and in my house we don't even cook special dinners for them... But birthdays? OMG I love them. I go all out because I still think they're special, even at my age. My own are slowly becoming less and less of an event, much to my disappointment, but that just means my kids' parties are getting more and more epic.

So don't feel bad. I bet you at least cook a turkey for Christmas...
