HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIAN!

Today is Julian's 6th Birthday! We were talking in the car on the way home from Tali's violin lesson this evening and considering that we'd now have to go to our second hand to count his age. Quite a milestone.

This video is from this past year some time. It just wouldn't be right for me to do a post about Julian and talk about the joy and love that he's brought into our family, without sharing a little of that light. Here is Julian doing what he loves to do (and our very first YouTube). Okay, so my camera hand needs a little work, not important (Ben when you judge this and you shall, be kind).



You may get some idea why Julian's Chinese Horoscope from his birth year read, "When you walk into a room, people smile." We haven't stopped smiling since.

Happy Birthday to our own natural treasure, the boy with a magnet in his heart. Happy Birthday ChooChoo!


PS: Mommy's Mommy, this one's for you; we know you'd appreciate it. XOX

I set the time for the post as 4:00 am as that was when Julian entered this crazy ole world. And we've all been better off since.

Happy birthday to the next Beatles prodigy! Great video - and the smile on my face couldn't be bigger :D My grandson Hunter turns 6 on Friday - Julian and he could be brothers they are so cute.

ariel said...

Very Happy Birthday to my fellow Beatles fan! 2 hands for your age, man, you're not a little boy anymore.

pia said...

Happy birthday Julian. Now you have me singing

ann said...

I have fallen hopelessly in love with the birthday boy...

G said...

T&I, thanks. It was a moment that I had to capture and I'm glad that I did.

Neva, thanks. I knew the video might bring a smile or two - at least to me :) He does bring me much joy this boy of mine. xox

hmbt, thanks so much. I agree on all fronts. And it's true, our little ones' birthays are just so very poignant for us. Such magic. Love to you too.

Terry, awww - then Happy Birthay to Hunter (I like that name). Tali's birthday is this Saturday. Busy time. Hunter and Julian - sounds like a good name for a book or just about anything - Julian and Hunter/Hunter and Julian. Love it. Glad Julian made you smile (it is his speciality). Hope it took your mind off your thanksgiving injury.

Ariel, no he's not but yet he'll always be (and I have the bonsai equipment right here to ensure that). Julian is indeed a Beatles fan!

Pia, come on - sing along! And thanks.


Ann, he has a habit of doing that to people, I should have warned :)

Thank you all for sharing in our joy of Julian's birthday. We're all oversugared and tired which is never a good combo. So g'night.

Claire said...

He's totally adorable! I could just pinch his cute little cheeks (and now he can be glad we're not neighbors, LOL)
Happy Birthday Julian!

Miz BoheMia said...

He is just beautiful! Happy, happy sweet little man and thank you for a much needed smile!

As for you happening mama, YAY on your YouTubing!!! MORE please!!!

cindra said...

Oh, my! I want to hug him and squeeze him. That would prolly scare him though, so could you do that for me? And dont' forget to kiss his nose!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JULIAN!

XOXOXOXO!!!

Theresa said...

Happy belated birthday, Julian! Anyone who's a Beatles fan is a friend of mine, but even if he weren't, he's cute enough to fall in love with. :)

G said...

Claire, I don't know you've got a lot of interesting things going on at your place, you could probably do a bait and pinch. Show him one of your pets and pinch. That'll work.

MizB, come here for a smile anytime mi amiga. Ooh I'm so embarrased before the YouTube queen. But well, allright! XOXOX

Cindra, Check, check and check. And thanks! XOXOXOXOX

Theresa, thanks! Yeah the Beatles fan/cute combo is a winner :)

better late than never, one feels.
He sure is soemthing magical and music seems to be his power.
I see a guitar in his future :)

Congratulations to a wonderful son and Happy birthdya to the rockstar himself!

Just want you to know that this morning before rushing off to school, Hunter watched Julian rocking out, was impressed with his smooth stylin on the air guitar, and demanded that we watch the yellow submarine trailer ourselves, which we did. Young Julian is a future musician extraordanaire without any doubt! Julian & Hunter... hmmm, sounds like a most amazing tale of two friends :)

Pavel said...

I'm sorry I missed this earlier. g, he's wonderfully adorable, very huggable, and cute as can be. It's easy to see how special he is and how much he's loved.

Thanks for sharing, G, and Happy birthday, little man...

Doug said...

Oh, I'm bouncing birthdays left right and center.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JULIAN!

Kyahgirl said...

happy belated birthday Julian! You're all boy. I see the beginnings of the air guitar phase :-)

G, this brought a huge smile to my face!

G said...

Kyah, yes it all starts here. Hey, we all need a smile each day, so I'm glad Julian could provide you one. Although I'm sure with those beautiful kids of yours, your quota gets met each day. xox
