He blew out the candles three times, because he kept wanting us to light them again.
Sebastian turned three today, and this was the first year he really could grasp the concept of a birthday. He's been excited about it for months. He's been giving all his stuffed animals birthday cards. And he's already picked out what birthday cake he wants... for the next ten birthdays. (This one was strawberry cake with chocolate frosting.)

Lately Sebastian and I have been watching a lot of Avatar: The Last Air Bender, a kid appropriate show that Loren and I like and already had in our collection. So the other day Sebastian decided he was Ang, an Air Bender, and I was a Fire Bender. We did a lot of make believe on that theme, and then in the evening, he noticed the clothes hanger pole, the one he had insisted on pulling out of his closet a few days ago.
(On that occasion, he started pulling on the pole and asked for my help. I said "no, I think it should stay there" and walked away. He got it out on his own. Later, I noticed a few items he has mysteriously gotten down from a high shelf in the nursery. The next morning he proudly told me "I fished that down with my fishing pole!" and gave me a demonstration with the clothes hanger pole.)
So he grabbed the pole and said "this is my glider!" He very carefully carried it around like Ang carries his glider in Avitar. It was a vast improvement over his previous use for the pole!
The next morning, I had gotten up before him. He came wandering out into the dinning room where I was, carrying the pole, and announced:
"I'm still that air bender and this is still my glider! "

Me and Sebastian went to the park to play with his new ball this morning. We were going to play in the grassy field, but the nearby skate park was empty so I said we could play in it. He had do much fun throwing the ball around in there, seeing how it bounced off the ramps at different angles.
You can also get a pretty good look at his new favourite shoes. These "shark boots" are wool lined. Great for the cooler months.

Recently Sebastian and I went out to lunch. Outside the cafe, Sebastian climbed into a coin operated ride shaped like a car. Then he started chatting away to the elf figure in the seat next to him.
"Hi. Hi. Hi. Can I drive? Can I drive?"
I had to pretend to be the elf and give him permission to drive before he would touch the steering wheel.

The aftermath of playing withSebastian this evening. We played Dance Party, which involves throwing all the couch cushions and pillows on the floor and dancing around while lilistening to music. Sebastian picks the music. He has his own CD player and access to our CD collection. Then we played dress up which led to him pulling out all of my scarves for his stuffed animals to wear.

"Mamma, I'm a gruffalo AND a zebra!"
This is how Sebastian dressed for Playcentre yesterday. He's been really interested in dress up lately. The shoes are his and he's been insisting on wearing them everywhere lately. The zebra costume belongs to our Playcentre but he got so attached to it in Wednesday that it ended up coming home with us "to be washed and returned!" was the official story but really I just couldn't get him to take the thing off.

The mobile app I was using to update this blog on my phone stopped working. I'm downloading a new one right now, but in the mean time I've gotten behind on my mini-posts. So to make up for it, here's some cute photos of Sebastian playing hide in the space between his old cot mattress (now used as a floor cushion) and its fitted sheet.
New hair cut courtesy of our friend Ange. I swear his eyes look even bigger now. We were playing that the mattress and cover were a pita bread, and he was the filling! He's really getting into imaginative play right now, which is so much fun.
He discovered my nail polish a couple weeks ago. He's put I don't know how many layers of polish on his nails and mine since then. He can be very careful with it, when he tries, even wiping the excess polish off the brush on the inside of the bottle.
He kept wanting me to take pictures of him when he was completely covered up with the sheet, and then he wanted to look at them. I don't know why he found that so fascinating.
