7. Reasons to be Cheerful

It has been a really wonderful week; lots of celebrations! Lots of happy people over at Mummy From The Heart bloghop too!

Jon had an extended very long five day weekend. It is so nice having him home and enjoying some quality time with Xander. I often feel sorry for Jon, during the week it feels like he hardly sees Xander because Xander is often ready to go to bed as soon as Jon gets home from work. He misses far too much so five whole days at home with us was bliss! 

Monday Jon came baby swimming with us and had a great time playing with Xander in the water. 

Tuesday was Jon's birthday! He was thrilled with the card Xander and I had made for him and in his element with the copious amount of Lego he was given/bought with his birthday money! I'm married to a big kid! 



Wednesday was my birthday! A mid-week lie in was a real treat with Jon being off and getting up with the baby! After dinner we went shopping to spend some of my birthday money (clothes of course!) and then finished the day with a roast dinner at my Mum and Dads. Lovely! 

Friday I spent the morning watching my class joining in a concert. It was really nice to be in the audience really watching them perform rather than being involved. They were little stars! 

Friday evening we spent with my family having a take-away and playing Jon's Lego birthday boardgame. Lots of fun! 

and today has been the best day of all...

Today has been our baby boys Dedication Day and its been just perfect. It was a truly beautiful service; just so full of celebration, thanksgiving and love for Xander. I read No Matter What for both of our babies, and the Pastor made a point of acknowledging Belle as part of our family too.  Everyone seemed to have a lovely time and Xander was a little gem; perfectly behaved and smiles in all the right places. Thank you to everyone who joined us today to celebrate his life and for all the generosity that has been shown to him! He is such a spoilt little boy! We will be opening presents with him all week!! 


So I'll finish with this, for Xander on his Dedication Day. 

May the Lord bless you and keep you.
may the Lord make his face shine on you 
and be gracious to you.
May the Lord turn his face toward you 
and give you peace. 
(Number 6: 24-26)
