Aidan is 2!






Aidan is 2! we had a tiny little party for him yesterday. a party of 3! it is easy to spoil a child, very easy. but even before Aidan came into the world, Hardy and i both talked about how we're gonna bring up our child (or children, should there be others). 

We are going to try and be as moderate as we can, on each and every single birthday. i dont want him to fuss about his birthdays and insisting on presents later... it should be just a day full of thankfulness, and be as simple as it can be. Therefore, no big expensive toy, no big cakes, no big parties, simply just us, having a big laugh, with big smiles throughout, and a huge big fun!



Aidan's a big fan of choo choos. not far from our house is a railway track and we could hear them pass by. he'd always stop and look at them everytime we're outside. and everytime when we're in the car, he'll be the one who'll be pointing out when there's a train!



And so i made him a birthday card with a choo choo train on it. i also did a party hat for him, with cars, trucks and digger on them... (which he refuse to wear!)
oh well, i'll just put it in his room...


Since there's just gonna be the 3 of us (and both Hardy and i are fasting), i decided not to order a cake, but make some cupcakes. with Aidan just turned 2, i didnt want to put too many sugar on them. but guess what, he picked those tiny little toppings, and ate one whole lion faced sugar and left the cake to us!



Our son Aidan is now 2. I had a lovely day yesterday. i sure do hope Aidan enjoyed his day too!


So, what did we get for Aidan? we brought him on an old diesel train ride from Valkenburg to Simpleveld! and what did we get in return, a very happy 2 year old full of ammusement!


Happy 2nd Birthday Aidan! 
We love you so so much, with all our hearts!
