Before bed, we brought out his gift from Grandma and Grandpa. Here was his reaction:
Of course, Scott wanted to eat cake everyday until it was gone. On Sunday night, we lost power, so we had to have cake by iPhone/glass lantern... Scott was really disappointed that he didn't blow out candles, but on the previous days, we used the gas burner to light a chopstick to light the candles, but with the power out, the strikers were not working on the stove. Oh well, he blew out candles at least 3 times for this birthday.
On his actual birthday, we received a lot of videos from family members with lots of cousins singing to Scott and he just loved it. Every hour or so I would get a new video and we watched them all throughout the day. We also video chatted with a few family members, too. Good times.
After Matt got home from work, we took the boys to a bouncy house that's pretty much always set up a little ways from us. You pay 5000kip (about 65 cents) and you can play as long as you want.
I think this is on Scott's actual birthday. He wanted candles every night until the cake was gone. I don't think I was present for this one because Bobby fell asleep in the car or something like that. I can't remember.
Many days later, we received a package from Nana and Papa. This is a little long so you don't have to watch it, but I wanted to post it for Nana and Papa so they can feel like they were there to watch him open his presents.
We are so grateful that Scott is in our family. He is more logical than any kid I've met. When he is upset, I can almost always ask him to stop crying so we can chat, and he will. I have been able to explain things to him and have him understand (or at least seem to) since he was less than 1 year old. The highlight of everyday is when he comes up to me and says, "Mom, you know what? I love you!" and gives me a big hug. He is very special and we're so glad he's ours! Happy Birthday buddy, we love you!!
