Cian's Birthday Party

Monday, December 31, 2012

Back in November, Cian turned four and we had a birthday party for him.  I also asked him a set of questions. I did the same thing last year, so it was fun to see how his answers have changed:

  • What is your favorite color?  Red
  • What is your favorite toy? Jaden (Red Power Ranger)
  • What is your favorite fruit? Applesauce 
  • What is your favorite TV show? Clone Wars, The Star Wars (it is Star Wars, The Clone Wars, but this is the way Cian says it)
  • What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch? Hot Dog
  • What is your favorite outfit? Golden Power Ranger costume
  • What is your favorite game? Lego Star Wars
  • What is your favorite snack? Fruit Snacks
  • What is your favorite animal? Monkey, what says oohh and ahhaha
  • What is your favorite song? He proceeded to make up a bunch of works and called it Man Man
  • What is your favorite book? A power ranger book. (P.S. We don't have one of these
This is the part of the story where Cian pitches a big fit about answering all these questions and says it it taking too long.

  • Who is your best friend? Will (his cousin)
  • What is your favorite cereal? Flavors (I think he was done answering questions and just trying to appease me)
  • What is your favorite thing to do outside? Catch leaves on the tree
  • What is your favorite drink? Chocolate milk
  • What is your favorite holiday? Halloween is my guess
  • What do you want to take to bed with you at night? George (he has a stuffed Curious George)
  • What is your favorite thing to eat for breakfast? Cereal
  • What is your favorite thing to eat for dinner on your birthday? *said in a whiny voice* I couldn't know what are my dinner!
  • What do you want to be when you grow up? Batman
Since he wants to be a Super Hero when he grows up we had a Super hero/Batman party for him at the Discovery Center.

 We said on the invitation that the kids could come dressed as their favorite super hero.  I think a lot of Cian's friends had fun with this!  This is also the first party where we have invited Cian's friends. He is kind of a social butterfly and really enjoyed having them all there.
Isla and Meme

Isla and Super Sam with his super mom Jenny

Amanda, Maggie and Taryn

Riley and Christopher (friends from Cian's class, I also work out with Riley's mom)

Allen and Elliott (Allen and I have been friends since college and his wife is pretty amazing too)

Noland and Miss Katrina. Cian LOVES Miss Katrina!

Anthony, this kid is exactly like Cian!  He calls him Anfony
 They had a super hero package at The Discovery Center and the kids made super hero masks then got to slide down the big slide super fast.  We were kind of rushed because you don't have much time in the room, but we had a good time!

My nephews, Kyle, Caleb and Luke

Maggie is a speed junkie, she loved the slide!

 I decided not to go crazy with this party since I had just done a big one for Isla but birthdays are too fun not to do something cool!

Cian is Four!!

Four.  Four years since I first met the little guy who would make me a mother.  Four years since my heart started walking around outside my body.  I have loved his voice and the person he is and is becoming for four years.  I have watched him grow from a tiny little mama's boy to a boy who idolizes his daddy and I cherish each stage.

To my Cian Bebop,

You constantly amaze me with your heart and your mind.
I remember as an infant you would pat my back when I held you.  You don't pat my back anymore but you still snuggle up with me sometimes and still need my kisses for boo boos and hugs when your feelings are hurt.
Never before did I share the last bite of my cookie with anyone.  You are worth it.
Never before did I jump happily in mud puddles.  It is so much fun with you.
Never before did I push all that I needed to do aside to lie down and sing a song and say prayers with anyone at bedtime.  This is my favorite part of the day.
Never before did I cry at every single mother-son dance or reference.  I am so thankful to have a mother-son relationship.
Never before did I let someone beat me almost every time in a race.
Never before did I know that this kind of love existed.

You are truly a blessing in my life

Cian, you are an excited, energetic and super four year old boy.  You still love star wars and your legos but you are really into super heroes.  You like to get "bad guys" and will turn pretty much anything into a battle.  You told me the other day that there were no bad guys in real like, just movies.  I love that you haven't met any real life bad guys and I wish so much that were true and bad guys were only made up.  You may pitch fits sometimes and get frustrated when you can't do something but you make up for those with sweet kisses.  You like to cup your hand on my face and it melts my heart.  You used to be a mama's boy but right now you are all about daddy.  I love watching you being so enthralled with your dad.  You truly do want to be like him and be with him all the time.  You said you were daddy's best friend.  You are the best thing we have ever done.

Love, Mommy
