He is an amazing, lovable and determined boy who has endured more than most adults, let alone children do in his 6 short years here on earth.
He is your typical (mega) BOY and is currently obsessed with anything that can transform into a vehicle, beat up some bad guys or has a remote control.
We started the day off right with a delicious breakfast at the Selwyn restaurant, where the boys downed some pancakes and french toast.
It was there where I actually received a 'birth' day gift of my own. A lovely couple who watched in amusement at the ongoings during our breakfast came up to me and gave me a Christmas cake. They explained how they have been there and done that and how their babies were now in their 30's. They told me that I was "doing a great job". With tears in my eyes I said "thanks, although it all seems so hard sometimes". She smiled, patted my shoulder, wished me a Merry Christmas and left. Gosh I hope she realized how much that meant to me (sniff).
So after breakfast even though today is Jack's birthday it was still infusion day...I know, I know but it is a part of our life and believe me he was totally fine with it. Mostly because he knew the day would consist of some serious iPad and Wii time, after all it is his Bday.
Our incredible nurses in the POP clinic at the PRHC also ensured he was spoiled with presents and cake (you girls and boy are seriously the best!).
Then home to a family dinner with all the grandparents. Where Jack blew out 5 of his 6 candles and saved the last lit one for his brother Owen to blow out (sniff sniff).
With more birthday festivities tomorrow at Playstreet you can be assured that our Jack is going to have an epic 6th Birthday!
No doubt Santa will get the entire recap of the last few days when we go to see him Sunday at Lockside. I hope the big guy has a sturdy knee because Jack is going to weigh another 10lbs by then from all of the cake.
Warmest regards and thanks for your continued support,
