My baby boy turns 3 today!

Just like that! How quickly these 3 years have passed. He's grown so much, he can do so many things, sing so many songs... He loves to play 'hide & seek'. His favorite color is still pink. He picks Curious George books to read each day and asks for an apple before bed every night. When he grows up he wants to be a monster.
But, wasn't it just yesterday that I held his tiny 7lb 7 oz body snuggled up close to me as he sucked his thumb and looked up at me with wide eyed wonder? No? I suppose yesterday his tiny 2 year old body was sitting in my lap, telling me about all the fun he had at preschool that day, and whispering about all the birthday plans he has for the weekend, with equal wide eyed wonder. We are so lucky to know this sweet boy. We tell him we love him at least 100 times a day. I think he knows it's true.

Oh, how he is loved.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Linus!
Off to the park we go!
