Rubble on a cake

FOUR years ago, this boy was born in this house.  Our 1st homebirth.  It was pretty amazing to know I had the support & strength to give birth naturally.  A midwife was with us the whole time.  When our girls were born, in hospitals, all was fine.  You're expected to be hooked up to an IV just in case (both times, nearing the end, I took pain relief, but wished I'd been patient) and not encouraged to walk or eat.  Also, so much less expensive.  And the next day, peaceful, no nurses coming in to wake you up and take your blood pressure....  Overall, I'm a person who likes things natural.

We celebrated Paul's 4th birthday twice.  On the day, we had a simple blueberry cake, at home, then a few days later, we celebrated with friends and put Rubble, the bulldog from Paw Patrol (a popular kid's series, we got a few books & 2 movies from our library recently) atop a cake I made.  It was a fun & festive gathering.
George is a good hugger and gives big kisses.
 He'll be ONE in about a month & a week!
Happy Fall!

Children who are generous in their hugs are very open hearted.
