SJ's birthday was yesterday. He's been talking about turing three for a long time, because to him, three is ultimately better than being two. I think it has something to do with holding up three fingers when asked how old you are, because two just isn't enough.We celebrated the big day with presents, family, and vanilla cake topped with heavenly icing.

place to be? beach

This little guy has shown me so much in the little time he's been here. He never ever stops smiling and can always find a way to make us laugh. His never ending supply of energy radiates through his personality, one of the many things I love about him. Although being the baby of the family has its advantages, he will settle for nothing less than being a "big boy" and doing things all by himself. Independent, sweet hearted, and loving little brother, I love you more than I can say...
I wouldn't trade you for the world.


I'm going out of town for several days, but promising a long post when I return. Wishing you all a great week!
