Happy birthday to Blake!!
Little man turns 3 today and he couldn’t be more excited. The birthday activity he requested for our famiily to do? Visit the fire station, as he loves all things with sirens. So we did that this weekend.
His cake request? Blaze (from Blaze and the Monster Machine on Nick Jr.). I got a little distracted with the kids while making this and didn’t make the icing red enough – don’t mind the pinkish icing on the cake 🙂
I seriously love everyday with this little cutie. He is so very sweet, he is quick to apologize, he is compassionate, he talks SO much, he gets so excited about things, he is always making us laugh, he is so talkative and open to people (though he can be majorly shy at first, once he starts talking he almost always captures their heart), he is active, he is easy going, and he freely gives tons of hugs and kisses. Almost daily, he shares about how he can’t wait to get bigger so he can “ride a roller coaster” (no idea where this comes from). And today, when I said “I don’t want you to get bigger, Blake, I love you at this age and I don’t want you to grow up”, his response was “Mom, its okay to be sad, but when you are sad, you need to go to bed.” What in the world? Daily, he makes us laugh saying funny things like that.
And, this little one turned 11 months old this week AND is walking. It isn’t her primary mode of transportation, but she is increasingly doing it more and more. I can’t believe she will be a year old in a month…time flies so very, very fast!
