My little stinkeroo,
I put you to bed tonight for the last time as a three year old and am more than a little sad at how fast the time goes. Seems like just yesterday you were a tiny little guy and now you just want to be bigger and faster and I am scared that soon you will be too big to stop and snuggle your mama. This year has been an eventful one for you with lots of changes. We moved into a new house before Christmas and moved you into a twin bed in a new big boy room – your mama stressed about it for weeks beforehand but you made the transition like a champ – sleeping through the night in your new bed from day one and you even wait for us to come get you in the morning. You moved into the big boy room at school too and once again I worried and once again you proved what an amazing little guy you are and took it in stride. While I know you miss your friends in the teal room, you have already made new friends in your new room and have the new routine down. You have another big change coming in November when your baby sister arrives but you excitedly tell everyone about your sister’s upcoming arrival and I have no doubt that you will be a great big brother.
You are still obsessed with trains and cars and will spend hours entertaining yourself at your train table or lining up cars to make a traffic jam. You love to play pirates and pretend – you have an amazing imagination and are always telling us great stories. You love watching Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Thomas the Train, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and have recently gotten into Veggie Tales. You are a happy guy – always singing and dancing and playing. You are a great errand runner and never complain when we are out for hours making multiple stops – people are always commenting to us how well behaved you are. Your favorite people remain the same – Grandma and Papa are close runners up to mama and your best friend (as you call him :P) dada and you just love playing with your cousins. We welcomed Aaron and Alyssa into the family over the past year and you took to them immediately and are always asking to go play with them after school. The last four years have been the best of my life – watching you grow from baby to toddler to boy has been amazing and I look forward to whatever the next year brings.
Mama and dada love you so much – Happy Birthday sweet boy <3
