We had such a fun weekend celebrating Noah's birthday! Granny Anne came down from Pretoria and we had a party for him on Sat afternoon with a bunch of people from our church....where I found out that in SA its a novelty to serve ice cream with cake! So funny! Anyway he got the cutest gifts. My favorite being two books that tell the story of Noah, and Jonah in 8 words each. Jonah's is...."Go! No! Ship, Splash, Gulp, Dark, Burp! Go, Yes!" Such a cute summary of Jonah in simple words. On his actual birthday we took him out for a milkshake (his first ever) and his first time ever drinking from a straw. He loved it. It was so cute cause when he wanted more milkshake he would make the sign for "milk!" :) Then on Tues we had a ladies tea with the amazing cake that he got on Sunday. It killed me to cut it, but it tasted awesome! He had no idea what all the fuss was about, but he loved it!
