My 3 Year Old Boy

My big man turns 3 today. I can't even believe it. Where has the time gone??

Of course, he is the sweetest, most aware and caring 3 year old I have ever met.

We were so excited to celebrate him yesterday.  He had been saying for months that he wanted a "woody buzz" birthday. But as it drew near, and after I bought everything for a Toy Story birthday, he switched to Thomas the Train.

So we went with it. He got to pick the cake.

 And what a cake it was!!
 Unfortunately, we got few pictures of all the guests, but here is one good one.  Aunt Joanne and Cousin Lauren.  Lauren was such a great sport, being passed all over the place! She loved it.  She even tried to eat my sandwich!!
 Fortunately, we did get some great pictures of the birthday boy.
 He was being so cute and coy while we were singing to him. It was amazingly adorable.
 The great/terrible thing about the cake, you could tell everyone who ate it by the amount of blue all over them. My fingers are still blue from cutting it!!
Case and point, a beautiful great grandmother with blue teeth!

Present time is always tough at this age, he wanted to open and play with every gift right then and there. But he had fun and he is such a loved (we are going to use loved instead of spoiled) little boy.

And he got excited about everything!
And was happy to model his new hat.
And his other new hat. This is the one he chose to wear today.

And after the guests all left, he tried on and played with all his other gifts.
And eventually, the birthday boy conked out. He had a great party, a blast with his friends, gifts galore and more blue cake than any boy should eat.
Today he got to hang out with Daddy and Sissy all day. They came into my work and he got some extra love from all my "work friends" (as Julie has dubbed them and fits perfectly!).  Then we went to lunch. After naps we hit the park and came home to make cupcakes for his class tomorrow. 

So a very happy birthday to my big man.  You can brighten any day and fill any heart with love.
