As Jake constantly reminds me, he is about to turn three. Ergo, it is imperative to look back at how small he was this time last year (and the year before that, for those also feeling sentimental). He also got to wear a cake hat at hoikuen (although how they ever get any child to wear a hat is beyond me!).
We had a small gathering in the back garden and did some quality time on the swing and newly installed trampoline. This year is shaping up to look much the same for the birthday day. Many plates of food in the embassy garden. With a rather large balloon.
