Ezzat is 8

Today is Ezzat's birthday and he's 8. We didn't really plan for anything special since the boys said they wanted to have a combined party. Well, I actually gave them the idea since I am really not up to having 3 birthday parties 2 weeks apart from each other. With my condition at the moment, preparing for one already sounds pretty daunting. As a matter of fact, we've never thrown one before. Not even once. It was always a small family affair. But the boys have been going to their friends' birthday parties and now they really want one for themselves, especially Emir. He's been talking about it for quite awhile. But the birthday boy is getting his present today and he is getting his chocolate cupcakes  and cheese pizza. I'd say that's a pretty good deal.

I've been looking at his pictures since last night since he first came to the States. He actually changed quite a bit. I really miss his chubbiness. He is also more talkative now. He used to be the quiet one. I thought I'd share some of them with you guys. 

All of these pictures were taken in Dec 2009 when the kids first got to Hawaii. Ezzat just turned six in October that year.

  1. Lovely photos :). He looks great. The fishing photo of him is my favorite. So... your condition? What's wrong? Or happy news to share? In any case: take care!
