Today my sweet boy turned three.
It's a fact that's still rather hard for me to wrap my mind around. This little boy, born weighing 4 pounds, 9 ounces. So small, so fragile.
There is nothing small about him now. He has a personality that's larger than life. In fact, my new copy of "Raising your Strong Willed Child" sits on the table waiting to be read.
Today we gave Will a choice between spending the morning at the bounce house or Chuck E Cheese's. He chose the bounce house.
Me: Will, I have a special birthday button for you to wear today!
Will: It red!
Me: Yes, isn't it cool?
Will: Red my favorite! It have LeQueen (Lightening McQueen) on it!
Me: Yeah! You want to wear it?
Will: No thanks.
We enjoyed lunch at the Japanese Steak House. Perhaps steak for lunch is rather fancy for a three year old's celebration, but it was fun all the same.
After Mike paid the $40+ check, Will asked, "Where the pizza?"
This evening we had our friends over for Will's big birthday party. Can you guess the theme?
Sneaking in a picture of Amelia all dressed up for her big bro's big day.
After the initial excitement of a Cars party wore off, Will began to insist that he didn't want a birthday party. "I want to be by myself," he kept telling me. Yeah, part of that whole strong willed thing.
I wasn't sure what to expect, but Little Monkey had a great time. As did we.
It was bittersweet to celebrate Will turning three today. I hope he enjoyed himself. I love him so.
