Raf enjoyed his first birthday party (though we've celebrated quite a few mid=year birthdays, such as half a year, 2/3rds of a year, and so forth). But today we had a tea party and invited many of our friends to help celebrate. We had such a lovely time, though we're exhausted now and so I'll just post some pics of the day...
So here are a few pics of Raf, me, Rich, Jen, Sage, (another) Jen, Sierra, Kate, Dave, Eileen, Taylor, Thomas, Maggie, Greg, Beth, Scott, another couple also named Beth and Scott(!), Brian, Chris, Charlene, Bistra... did I miss anyone?!
Raf's friend, Sierra!
Everyone helped Raf open his presents. My favourite part was 5 year old Taylor telling his 3 year old brother, Thomas, 'No, Thomas, let the baby open them!".
Raf was quite shy for most of the party but when it came to singing Happy Birthday he just beamed and beamed the entire time! We even sang it twice :) I'll post a clip in a moment.
