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!
