When I woke up this morning, Liam gave me a giant hug and said "I love you Mémère". (Mémère is French for grandma.) He said it so sweet and lovingly, this child makes me melt. Of course, I said I love you too, and asked him if he remembered what today was, and he shyly said, "my birthday" and smiled. Then I gave him a big hug and he told me "I like small hugs". Funny.
We went out to his favorite breakfast spot, Dunkin Donuts. He had a bagel and cream cheese, 6 chocolate glazed donut holes, and chocolate milk. He ate almost everything, except for 3 bites of his bagel that he shared with me! As we discussed his birthday breakfast, he proudly showed me he was four.
We then went to lunch with a group of my friends (Brian, Upendo, Debbie, Donna, Bev, & sorry I don't recall the one gentleman's name who I had not met before) from when we used to work together at a local nonprofit. It was a fantastic time, so great to see everyone! Liam took a real liking to Brian, who spent much of his lunch entertaining:)
Later, he told me to stop taking pictures of him, LOL! I told him I couldn't help it, I was his Mémère!
Now, we are waiting for mommy to come home from work so we can have more birthday celebration! And tomorrow, birthday party!!!
I love this little soul, he is so special and joy-filled!
