2nd Birthday: Video Clips. Here are a couple of video clips from Elijah’s birthday. The first is rather long, but it shows him opening his birthday gifts. This was actually the first time that he took part in the opening process… usually (Christmas being the last time that we tried) he wasn’t very interested in helping tear the paper. He always sees on new toy and then that becomes his only interest for the next few hours. On his birthday morning, we loved watching him unwrap all of those gifts which had been sent for him from his U.S grandparents and great grandparents.
The second clip is very cute. It shows him watching one of the many birthday messages that he received on his birthday. I think it that is really awesome that friends took the time to send videos of them singing. It was awesome watching Eli listen to them sing to him. Very thoughtful – thank you to those friends!
