Ok, enough of the serious stuff! I think I'm just realzing how quickly this foundational time where we can shape and mold him is passing by. At some point not too far away, I know his friends will have just as much if not more influence on him than we will. Gosh, if turning 3 makes me think about the future this much, imagine how I'll feel when he goes to kindergarten!
For his birthday party this year, we kept things pretty simple because we had only been home from the hospital after Liam's birth for a week when it came time to celebrate! Noah wanted a Word World birthday party theme, which was such a great idea! If your kids have not seen this cartoon, you'll have to turn on PBS for them. It's such a cute cartoon! Noah learned all of his letters so quickly just by watching it. We cut out letters and pasted them around the house for items like the radio, window, mirror (below), door, porch, and "fireplace" (below).
We invited just our immediate family members, had lunch and cake, and then opened presents.

After singing Happy Birthday, we enjoyed some cake, and it was - as Noah says - DEEELICIOUS!! He opened his gifts, and as usual, everyone picked out very generous, wonderful gifts. The timing was perfect. He had lots of new, fun toys/games to play with as we adjusted to life with a newborn.
Happy birthday, sweet boy!! I love you to the moon and back!!
