three

Birthdays are so bittersweet for me.  I love my boys to death.  And I would love to pretend that they will be my little boys forever, but birthdays are the harsh reminder that they are growing up, getting big and turning into little men right before my eyes.  I can't get through singing "Happy Birthday" without tears.  Completely not possible.

I cried the moment when we first met him. I was overwhelmed with gratitude. The baby we waited for for three long years had finally arrived. I couldn't even believe it was true.


Today, he turns three.



He is our sweet and handsome...


funny and charming...


 articulate and chatty...


happy and giggly...


 redhead and wild...


 curious and thoughtful...


daredevil and fearless...


loving, snuggly and affectionate...


We love you so much Grant. We are so lucky that we get to be your Mommy and Daddy. You bring laughter and joy to every day and our family could never be complete without you.

*********

I am going to try not to cry today. I am going to try and just soak up each moment and be grateful that we get to be his parents.  I am going to try my hardest not to acknowledge the fact that he is only going to be my little baby for a little bit longer before he becomes my little man.

We are off to have some birthday waffles with whip cream and then we are spending the day at the fair to celebrate this sweet boy.

Happy Birthday Goose!!
