His last night as a three year old was spent in a state of excitement, and reading a new Topsy and Tim book about their Birthday party contributed to the 6am wake up - making sure we weren't going to be late to his party.
Once friends had gone, we had a much quieter party for family and Dylan had a chance to open some presents and sit down.
I took home four very tired boys, three of which didn't make it home awake (thankfully the bloke did!)
Dylan turning four is such a big moment for him and I. He spends all year looking forward to his birthday, having his friends there just for him, having a cake baked and a song sung and of course getting gifts too. For me it marks four years since I became a mama, and every year I watch him with pride.
