|A little bit spoilt with presents|
Felix and his little friend, Lilly, both turn two this week so we (Lilly's Mum and I), decided to have a joint birthday party for them in Adelaide. All their friends from Early Intervention were able to come and share the party with them. It was also a great excuse for all of us Mums to get together for a catch up since we all live so far away from each other. Cate was able to come to the party, as well as my best friend, Deb, and our beautiful girl, Amy. I was excited to be able to introduce them to all the lovely ladies from Early Intervention and show off their gorgeous kids.

After the party, I got to spend the evening with Deb and another friend, which was so relaxing. We went out for a delicious meal and had coffee and cake after. Felix, despite having a long drive and a big play at his party, was an angel when we were out. He happily ate and drank, and read some books. It was way past his bedtime so he went into an overtired, deliriously happy mood. He wandered around the coffee shop, making friends with people along the way. He was adorable. I'm so proud of him; I can only imagine how exhausted he was. Later, I picked up Amy from work and Felix and I went to stay at her place for the night. After a bit of a play on Amy's bed, and lots of cuddles with her, he fell asleep in his cot. He was one very tired boy!

The next day Amy cooked us a delicious hot breakfast and we headed off for the first of Felix's appointments. He had to see the Ear, Nose and Throat Specialist at the hospital. They were running a bit behind at the ENT, but I didn't mind at all because we had a surprise visit from one of the Mum's from EI with her little boy. He had to have a procedure done later in the day, so she was able to sit with me to pass the time, which was lovely. When Felix was called in, it was a fairly straightforward consult. He is always so good when he's examined and, once again, sat perfectly for the Doctor while he looked in his ears. It was confirmed that there was definitely fluid in his ears and, with all the previous ear infections, grommets were suggested as the best course of action. His operation has been booked for mid December.
Overall, it was a very successful trip and a welcome relief from all the little hiccups of the past week. We arrived home last night thoroughly exhausted. After a great night of rest Felix even slept in, which is pretty unusual for him; not that I'm complaining!!
