The things we do (when not counting artillery shells)

Yousuf enjoys a swing on our farm with one of his pet rabbits (still unnamed...suggestions welcome), and later, "reads" a book in the newly opened and absolutely amazing Qattan Centre for the Child in Gaza (a few seconds later, the book nearly ended up inside the hard-drive of one of the library's computers as Yousuf tried to shove it in the Cd-Drive. Maybe we'll opt for story-time instead next-time).

And a big happy birthday for Yousuf-he turns two today! (though we will hold off on the official celebration till later in the week).

You and your husband have much to be proud of; Yousuf has a certain sparkle in his eyes that comes through in photographs.

Looks like he is starting on a life-long habit of reading, too.

Enjoy the many wonderful years ahead with him.

Happy Birthday Yousuf!
He looks like such a happy child. It's good to see a smile like that, with the situation you're in.

Happy Birthday Yousuf!
It's good to be 2.
Hope there will be more books to read and less artillery shells to count.

Happy birthday to the beautiful Yousuf and his lovely, talented and brave mother (I think mothers should get birthday greetings on the days their children were born). I love the photos of Yousuf helping make cake, above.

Congratulations on your Birthday Yousuf!

My daughter also has a rabbit, we named him Musse as he looked very much like a mouse as a baby rabbit. Mus is Swedish for mouse.
