We had a very simple little party for Ezra this morning, full of dinosaur goodness just as he requested. I was slightly worried that the three mates we’d invited would make the party feel a bit twee, but I couldn’t have been more wrong – once the boys and their families arrived we had more than a houseful and it was just perfect. Ezra was right at home in the chaos and noise!
It would have been easy to put this party off until next year for his big fifth (hold me, how is that only a YEAR AWAY?!) but I’m so glad we didn’t. The joy he had at sharing a morning just for him with his little friends, with plenty of cake and balloons and dressups, was such a reward for us. It really is a testament to how well he has coped with such a huge transition to life here in Wellington, and how great he is at choosing friends with awesome families to boot!
Happy birthday Ezra James Gray. We love you so much!
