Happy Birthday to my littlest guy! I can't believe how quickly time flies, it seems we just had him in the hospital for jaundice under the blue lights, and here we are all healthy, eating Sponge Bob Cake to celebrate! We had a wonderful weekend, of course it went too quickly. I guess that's the bummer about working on Saturdays, I miss a whole day with my family. Saturday Greg baked the cake for me, and Saturday night I turned it into Sponge Bob Square Pants (Bah-Bunge in Calvin-ese). Sunday after church Mom and Dad and Gramm 'Raine and eventually Martin came out and we had Calvin's birthday dinner and cake and ice cream. We did presents first, since he didn't really want to nap, and I didn't want him to melt. He did wind up taking a little snoozer on the couch with Papa. All in all a great birthday celebration!! Happy Birthday, little guy!!

So...this game is not really very close to Calvin's appropriate age group.
He did not receive it for Christmas.
He DID find it while rooting around in the hall drawers where he usually finds play-dough.
It's not even HIS, actually, it's Maisie's!
It kept him entertained for an HOUR before dinner. That is just downright amazing for Calvin. He is usually on one toy for about a minute and a half, and then on to the next thing. (generally, one of MY things, ahem.) He played with it some more after his bath, too, at one point grabbing it off the table, turning to bring it to me, and totally yard sale-ing it all over the family room floor. There were fish EVERYWHERE!!!
So at the end of the evening, I put it back into the drawer where he found it, probably a little deeper than where he found it. We'll see what happens tomorrow. ;)
