Happy birthday George

Our youngest family, taken on Sunday afternoon, we had lunch with daughter and SIL. 
George is 2 years old today, we had a party yesterday, with a beautiful cake, Teletubbies who George loves, it tasted as good as it looks. 
Will had a fantastic day out with Grandpa on Saturday, even got a ride in this jeep, he is army mad and wore his combats and helmet, his face is just pure joy, grandparents know so much and so many interesting people.
We have had  a brilliant family weekend, how quickly the last 2 years has flown by, all the sadness of the first few weeks of his life has been transformed into joy and laughter, the fear of the unknown was replaced with knowledge, thanks to support from Portsmouth Downs Syndrome Association, they were and still are a tower of strength, George has taught us all so much. He is an intelligent, inspirational, determined little boy, some of his links are different, he is still to master walking and talking, but he communicates well, he is becoming independent, so wicked in his play, he loves to copy older brother Will. 

I had many things planned to do over the weekend, nothing was done, again I am tired, we are going out into the garden this morning to pick up huge piles of leaves, all can be put in my black dustbin, in hope of leaf mulch next year, this afternoon is going to be lazy. 


  1. Awww, Happy Birthday to George. He looks such a happy little boy who brings so much pleasure to the whole family. We're all individual and he'll catch up with his walking and talking in his own time, it's society who expect them to be doing things at certain ages. The main thing is that he's happy and I think we can see he is with that beaming smile he has.

  2. It's been lovely to read about George over the last couple of years. Thank you. And he really looks as though his birthday was a great day!

  3. Happy Birthday to George, such a lovely, happy little boy.
    What a nice treat for Will. That's a nice family photo that deserves to be framed.

  4. What a beautiful family. So glad you all had a lovely time for George's birthday.

  5. Happy birthday George! Will looks absolutely over the moon in the jeep too. A lovely photo of you all together there :)

  6. Happy Birthday George! Those 2 years have certainly flown by.
    He always looks such a happy little boy in the photos you share, I'm sure he will catch up with walking and talking in his own time, he is loved, that's all that matters.

  7. Happy birthday George.

    Love the photo of you all. Enjoy those grandchildren.

    God bless.
