Kirby 3 (a birthday interview)

birthday train art

Three years ago today, at 10.45 am (the very time I post this), our boy wonder Kirby was born. In the three years since, he’s gone from being a Velcro baby who would only sleep in my arms for the first ten weeks of his life, to a confident, cheeky little boy who loves vehicles, pirates and mash. This is his first proper birthday interview:

Favourite colour: I like red

Favourite book: Spot! (“Where’s Spot?” is his current favourite)

Favourite toy: I like Eeyore, and the steering wheel, and the fire engine… nee naw , nee naw!

Favourite game: hide-and-seek

Favourite song: row row

Favourite TV show: “Peter Rabbit” and “Topsy and Tim”

Favourite animal: tiger… ROAR!!!!

Favourite friends: Aoife

Favourite food: mash, meatballs, Weetabix

Favourite fruit: bananas

Favourite drink: milk


Kirby’s birthday train is mixed media on watercolour paper, using water-soluble crayons, scrap papers, gesso, pen, and a personal photo.

  2. It doesn’t seem possible that Kirby can be three already. I like the little red train artwork. And how sweet that his favorite friend is Aoife.

  3. I REALLY wish I did more of this with Kendra – already 8 now and I would have LOVED having those yearly interviews. Happy BIRTH day to you sweet mama, and happy day to that spunky little cutie of yours! xoxo
