Happy Birthday!
Happy Birthday! | Mamoru Suzuki
23 posts | 1 read
Once again Mamoru Suzuki, the author of You Belong to Me has created a book that expresses the all-encompassing love parents feels for their children. This time, he uses the occasion of a birthday to look back at the long days spent waiting patiently for the baby to be born, the special day it arrives, and the miraculous perfection of every stage of its growth until eventually the baby grows up and takes off into the world on its own, accompanied by the blessings, hopes and love. Soft, warm colors and cozy images are accompanied by a spare text that perfectly captures the all-encompassing love, parents feel when they think about their children. This is a birthday book that will resonate with anyone who has loved a child, and is a gift that every child deserves to get.

Wishing all Norwegians a happy birthday and a great May 17 celebration.

For every none Norwegian, May 17 is our National Day and we celebrate our constitution from 1814.

Her actual birthday isn‘t until Thursday, but we celebrated Nina‘s 1st birthday today in the upstairs of this adorable old library. They‘ve been renovating it for years and we were the first group to hold an event there. It was a blast and the space was beautiful! I didn‘t think to take pictures of the room, but my in-laws might have some I can share

CouronneDhiver Already?! Wow. Time flies 3mo
Johanna414 @CouronneDhiver you‘re not kidding! 3mo
Tamra So cute! 3mo

GarthRanzz @MinDea It wasn‘t as fun as we‘d hoped (bad construction meant an extra four hours going the last 90 miles!) but we enjoyed it. The botanical gardens had a free admission day when we went so that helped. 😊 And Rocky Mountain National Park was great! 13mo

2⭐️ A simple happy birthday from a mother to her child. It is about the child's birth and growing up. I do not really like the art. Much of it seems to represent a womb or being enfolded in flesh. There is a nursing scene with anatomy on display that some may find inappropriate but others will find heart warming. I suppose you could say it's a spiritual celebration of life (not a religious one). For me, it's just not my thing.
