Yesterday we celebrated
Everyone oohed and ahhed over Frédéric's amazing cake. I oohed and ahhed over his amazing cake, and the fact that he managed to find time to finish it, with crazy hours Friday and Saturday, leaving him little time to work on it.
Leftover laminate flooring that doesn't match anything in our house makes a great train cake board. I knew we'd been saving that for some reason.
Noah was very pleased with most of his gifts... but was not sure at all about Toby the talking robot.
He stared at him distrustfully for a few minutes before slipping out the back of the folding chair and running away to the living room, leaving the rest of his unopened gifts behind.
Some of the other gifts met with more immediate approval, once we convinced him to come back.
He did start to warm up to Toby later, once he saw the other kids playing with the robot and not sustaining any bodily harm.
Cashew update: Noah saw the allergist Saturday. She did a skin sensitivity test on his arm and he showed no allergies to cashews, pistachios, peanuts, cats, or dust. So either it's an intolerance or it was a random one-off, but we won't be testing either theory any time soon.
