We had Matthew's 4th Birthday party today with friends and family. He was in a very crabby mood this morning but was super for the entire afternoon. He enjoyed his cake and ice cream and loved opening his presents. He did get what he asked for for his birthday: cereal, jelly beans, lollipops, slippers and pajamas. He also got a lot of other nice gifts that he also loved. By the time the party was over, his belly was quite distended. We hooked him up to his Farrell bag and it seemed to help.
