A Simple Day for Our Bub

Last night; the night before Zubin’s birthday, I said the birthday verse to my beautiful bubba (the same waldorfy verse I have said to Elki and Anusha for years) as we lay in bed. He was looking up at me with his little mouth open (his way of kissing) as I recited the words, kissing him between each line (my heart melting just a bit!)
Today we celebrated Zubin’s first birthday. We kept it simple; focussing on the things he enjoys and gifting him mostly handmade toys.

Anusha had been getting very excited about her little brother’s special day and was the first awake ready to give Zubin her gift; a secondhand trike we bought from an op-shop.

We gave him loads of love, kisses and cuddles; Elki proudly hugging his now one year old brother.

The morning sun shone with a beautiful warmth,

A glorious day to spend outside.

Yesterday he surprised us by easily clambering up the slide, now one of his favourite things to do.

image

We spent a lot of time at the playground,

And a lot of time sitting around on the grass as Zubi played with his new toys.

Tree blocks made by Scott, beach rocks and shells collected by Elki,

And a Waldorf inspired fern baby made by me.

A simple day devoted to our little fella.

I spent moments of the day remembering this time one year ago; his amazing birth and a magical day with my family.

image

Some of the day was also devoted to one of his favourite things; eating!

image

His birthday treat; family made chocolate date and apricot logs.

image

He couldn’t wait to get his hands on them!

There was more time spent at the playground, a walk with me around the lake, and lots of playing in the sunshine.

And here he is at twenty to five; exactly one year old, waving to his Dadda. Blessed we are to have this adorable little soul in our lives 💖
