Rory was invited to his first birthday party a few weeks back...by a four-year-old girl (one of his friends from daycare). I was a bit surprised that a four-year-old would want a baby at her party, but she loves him and was most insistent that he come.
It was a fantastic morning and Rory and I both enjoyed ourselves mingling with the other kids and parents. The birthday girls' parents set up an obstacle course in the paddock next to their house which was a lot of fun. I even bumped into one of my nurses from the Mother Baby Unit...how random is that? It turns out she is originally from the area and was down visiting her parents. I play tennis with her dad and had no idea he was her dad! She remembered me and loved seeing Rory again.
