The One Where It's Charlie's 9th Birthday


Ups and downs

Yesterday Charlie, my little tiny Charlie, turned nine years old!! Nine!! Wow. I honestly can't believe that this time (2 minutes ago) Charlie entered this world. He weighed 5lb 3oz but was quite sick and was diagnosed with kidney reflux at around 10 days old. He went down to around 3lbs, tiny, tiny! He finally got better and now he's a happy, cheeky, mischievous, funny, little nine year old, healthy boy!

Birthday boy

He was so excited in the morning, he couldn't wait to open his presents!! I had to let him open them before breakfast, I think he would have burst with suspense otherwise, haha. Bless him!
He opened his presents, he got a new school bag, pencil case, angry birds goodies and what not. He marched off happily to school with his new school bag, stationary and of course some sweetie goodies for his class mates.

After school, he opened the rest of his presents. Charlie has been wanting a kindle for a really long time, he loves reading and he's always playing on my kindle fire and reading his books on there, so for his birthday we got him a kindle fire! His face was priceless when he opened it. Bless him.

I treated Charlie, Harry and Ellie to fish and chips for dinner, (Charlie's favourite!) we ate them outside in the garden and enjoyed the weather.  After dinner, we all sang 'Happy Birthday' to Charlie and had some Cadburys flake birthday cake. Which is the one Charlie picked, talk about yummy!

We spent the rest of the evening playing games, making loom bands and playing games on the kindle. Charlie also got some reading in, he LOVES reading on his kindle. I think it's such an educational piece of technology! He also loves playing maths games on it.
]By the end of the evening the kids were shattered, had a nice bath and watched some T.V, followed by bed!

Over all Charlie had a wonderful Birthday! He is so looking forward to his day at the beach during the six weeks holiday - I asked him what he'd like to do for his birthday and he said "A day at the beach with a picnic and some crabbing" so that's what we'll do in the summer holidays, an extra treat for his birthday :)

I still can't believe he's nine years old! It's craziness.
