Today is Ilya’s 4th birthday! We are celebrating it with a few wonderful friends tonight.
But, this morning, I looked up the Russian birthday song on youtube. And after one try, I found the birthday song which Ilya clearly knows and LOVES. He got so excited.
This is him being a “babushka” last night, in his hooded towel after a bath. Calling himself a “babushka” was all him!

Hi! Maria again… There is even a translation for the lyrics: Let the pedestrians walk clumsily through the puddles And let the water run over the asphalt in a river. It’s unclear to the passersby, On this rainy day, Why I’m so happy. But I’m playing the concertina For all the passersby to see. Unfortunately, Birthdays Only come once a year. I wish that a wizard Would fly in, in a light blue helicopter, And show a movie for free. He would wish me a happy birthday And probably, leave as a present 500 ice cream sandwiches.
