Holy Crap You're Three

Three years ago today, at this time, I became the lucky mother of this wonderful boy. I can't even begin to tell you how much that day, that moment changed me, and changed my life.

I will never forget the moment I saw your face, the moment you were no longer that little grey/white image on the ultrasound, no longer that little lovely baby swimming in my belly.



I am amazed at the little man that you are becoming. Articulate doesn't even begin to describe you mastery of the english language....there are times we don't think you will ever stop talking.

You notice everything going on around you, you don't miss a trick....especially if Mommy or Daddy say a bad word.

You won't admit when you are tired, but we can tell, your wrinkled well worn thumb lets us know when you are done.

Always a little boy of your own will, you have yet to potty train. You know what needs to be done, and you know when to do it, you just have no interest...I have no doubt that one day, when you decide, you will take to it and there will be no turning back.

There are so many things that I could tell about you, so much that I could share. You are such a sweet and amazing (and adventurous, and smart, and adorable, and energetic, and argumentative, and strongwilled...) little boy, I can't wait to see what a wonderful man you grow up to be.

  1. Ours turned three recently - and isn't it amazing looking back and seeing how much your life has changed? I cannot imagine our lives without our little 3-year old.

    Those are adorable pictures - he got the best of both mom and dad. And those eyes are just little heartbreakers!

    Happy Birthday Tommy!

  6. Happy birthday, Tommy!

    Our oldest son, Billy, was three before he was potty trained. We finally had to do away with the Pull Ups and buy cloth training pants. Since it was summer, I just let him wear those without anything else on. He was trained fairly quick after that! He didn't like the wet feeling on his bottom. If you haven't already tried that, maybe it's worth a shot.

    Hope Tommy's day was a great one!
