Look Who's 3!!

It is so hard to believe our sweet little boy is now three years old!  Where has the time gone?  Seriously, it just seems like it wasn't that long ago that we brought him home from the hospital.  It has been so amazing to watch him grow and develop into the sweet amazing kiddo he has become.  His little personality is so animated, his cute little expressions crack us up all the time and his imagination is so creative these days.

This year, O was really excited about his birthday and talked about it a couple of weeks leading up to the big day.  He would hold up three fingers and say he was going to be three and everyone was going to sing 'Happy Birthday' to him.  His birthday was on Wednesday, which was a school day for him, so they had a little party for him.  That evening, we enjoyed a nice quiet family dinner and he opened his presents afterwards.  He was so excited and it made us happy to see him enjoy the day so much.

The day after his birthday, we met Mimi/Papa and Uncle Kev/Aunt Kel for dinner at one of O's favorite places...Don Juan's.  We asked O where he wanted to go and he said he wanted a cheese quesadilla at Don Juan's.  We had the staff sing happy birthday to him and he even let them put the sabarro on his head for a brief period.  He loved his dinner and we all enjoyed some of his Thomas cake afterwards.  Unfortunately, my parents were unable to join us since my Dad had surgery the day before.  Glad he is doing well and we are wishing him a speedy recovery.

Owen, you have brought so much happiness and joy into our lives over the last three years.  Happy Birthday to our sweet little guy.  We love you!

Happy Birthday Daddy!

On January 2nd, we celebrated Brent's 33rd birthday!  He was off work on that day, so we just enjoyed a low-key day at home and I fixed his favorite dinner for him, lasagna.  Yummy!

I am so thankful that O has such a great role model to look up to and I am lucky as well to be married to a wonderful man. 

Happy Birthday!!  We love you!!

Big Brother = Big Boy Room

O has always loved his bedroom, especially his crib.  From the second week of his life until now, he has been happy and content sleeping his little heart away in his room.  With a new baby on the way and the fact that O is three, we felt it was only fair and time to move O into our guest bedroom, which would give him so much more room.  While we were at it, we figured we would go ahead and take the plunge and convert his crib into a full-size bed.

We really talked it up to him, ordered him some new curtains, got him some bedding from Pottery Barn Kids, ordered him a new mattress set and viola it he was all set to go.  We also got him a special Thomas pillow to help make it extra cozy.

It just so happened, we got everything done on New Year's Eve.  You should have seen his eyes when he saw his new room, he was so excited and it was so priceless to us.

So while we were bringing in the new year, O was happily snoozing in his new room.  So glad our little guy loved his new room..
