The reason why Jack was such a champion at blowing out his two (he can now say the word two) candles was because he practised. Firstly with a book called Happy Birthday Maisy. He did try with a whistle that my Dad gave him which activated a Thomas the Tank Engine but he kept on sucking instead of blowing and Thomas was going nowhere.On the day of his birthday Diane produced some party blowers (is that what they are called? really?) and he got the hang of things quickly. Must have been the people teaching him. He now likes to travel with one at all times just in case.
