March always takes me by surprise.
I spend so much time “in February” celebrating and anticipating. And the turning of the calendar page always serves to remind me of the season of my child’s birth and the long days we spent stretching forward waiting for his birth. He was ten days overdue.

Now he is 9!

and I am face to face with my littlest darling’s birthday in just 8 days.

And somehow their birthdays don’t seem so close together (in my mind)- yet they are.

I live in February- and then, unexpectedly, I always feel, it is March. March! So here we are… and I will be uploading the last of my February days very soon.

But now, onto celebrating the incredible gift of this gentle soul.

Happy, happy birthday Jonah!

We celebrated a birthday weekend with him. He had his chosen feast, drinks, and movie Friday night and then we had a special meal with Ama and Granddad before Talent Night- and birthday cake afterwards.
