Because Birthdays Should Be Savored
I opened cards as they came in the mail.
I unwrapped packages a few days early.
I spent full afternoons and evenings with my favorite people.
I got to pick out the movie we saw.
I was allowed to sleep in an extra hour.
I treated myself with my favorite things without over-indulging and wishing I hadn't.
I enjoyed every last bit of this birthday week.

Sebastian has had an excess of energy lately so we've been trying to help him expend it so we can all maintain our sanity. One of our favorites is letting him jump on our bed and I finally got the bright idea to actually photograph him this week. He would do it all afternoon if I'd let him. We make sure to cover the corners of the end tables with pillows and keep a close eye on him when he gets really into it. Thankfully our bed is too tall for him to attempt this when we're not in the room.
Sebastian has become a champion sleeper at night but this week he's been waking up around 2 a.m. wanting to play and watch Elmo. The first night he kept telling me about a yellow choo-choo and an airplane outside and that he was scared so I got him some milk and calmed him down and two hours later he finally went back to sleep. This has happened three nights in a row now with each night taking less time for him to go back to sleep but every time we put him down for a nap or for the evening he has told me he is scared of the choo-choo. I can't figure out why he's started this night waking all of the sudden and wonder where this fear of the 'yellow choo-choo' came from.
So, I'm wondering if any of you who have had similar experiences could share your thoughts or outcomes. I'm sure its nothing to worry over but I know a full night's sleep would do us all a lot of good.
