Busy Days

We have had birthday parties, special events and other activities that have kept us busy over the last two weeks. A highlight was going to Katie's 5th birthday party. Katie was born 6 months before Tobiah to my friend Illin and we often talk about how they were each other's first friend. When Katie started talking she used to call Tobiah "Biah". It is hard to believe she is now 5 and will be off to kindergarten next year! Here are some cute pics of the two friends together:

On Saturday, May 3rd, Tobiah's preschool had its annual Trike-a-Thon fundraiser event. Toby has been looking forward to this day since last year! Parents sell raffle tickets to "sponsor" their little racers, who ride their decorated tricycles and scooters in a circle around the parking lot. Toby couldn't get enough of it!

Here is Toby with some of his friends at the starting line.

Toby's biggest fan. He was saying, "Go!" from the sidelines.

On Sunday, May 4, we had another friend's birthday party, so we waited to celebrate Toby's "half birthday" on Monday. He is officially 4 1/2! Because waiting for his birthday to come around only once a year is so hard, we thought it would be special for him to have a 1/2 birthday celebration (just with mom, dad and Asher in attendance). Here he is posing with 1/2 a cake! Asher has been singing bits and pieces of songs lately, and with all the birthday parties we've been to lately, after we sang, "Happy Half Birthday to You!" to Toby, Asher started quietly singing, "Hap Day to You!" on his own. It was adorable.
