Happy Three Birthday!

Today is the long awaited "Three Birthday" that my little boy has been talking about for months.  So often he's started a question or comment, "when I have my three birthday and turn three..."  He was so excited to cross the last day off his countdown on the fridge this morning (now he just has to make it to his party with family on Saturday)!

I am so thankful for you, Isaac.  You are a gift from God, filling our house with laughter and silliness.  You have grown up so much in the last year.  You've gone from talking in short phrases of simple words to long sentences, stories and questions.  You are always trying to figure out the world around you and it has been such a blessing to watch you experience new things and see your mind at work.  You enjoy playing with your cars, trucks and trains (and I love listening to the conversations they have).  You are thrilled when we get to do a project together or "do art" as you so often say.  You are always on the go -- love being outside, at the park or playing at "gym time".  You've become a very good helper around the house and are never happier than when you get to help Dad and use his tools.  You've mastered so many skills this year -- most notably using the potty and getting dressed by yourself.  You've handled all the transitions this fall handed you with the move and leaving daycare so well.  I'm so blessed to be able to stay at home with you now.  One of my favorite moments of your day that I missed before is those first minutes after you wake up in the morning or after nap -- hearing you walk to the top of the steps to say "Good morning Mom, is it up-time now?" and then getting snuggle with you on the couch while you finish waking up. 

We love you so much!  Happy Birthday Isaac and may God bless your 3's!
