Happy 3rd, E-beast


When did this happen? And why am I still wearing the same tank top?

Today is Eliot's birthday. He's spent the last hour+ in his room listening to a mix CD we made him. It delights me. He loves music and we had fun putting it together for him.

He's three. While I realize he's not exactly getting his learners permit this week, it's a big deal. I've started noticing toys that need to be boxed up and sent to the basement, baby toys. He's over them and onto all his sports equipment, etc. Yesterday he threw a line drive straight into my mitt that startled me. His vocabulary is growing daily.

While I miss our "baby" I'm loving this stage (apart from the times where Captain Destructo shows up...) I'm so proud of him and who he's becoming. So much so that I wish I could take credit for it. He never ceases to be the most amazing blessing. Looking for old pics, I read this blog again this morning. I can't say it any better than I already have.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Peanut. We love you more than you could know or understand.

A very happy birthday to Eliot. You can put it all together so perfectly. I love your sentimental heart and that you never hesitate to share the details with us. You think it can't possibly get any better but I have good news for you. There are so many surprises hiding around future corners. For now enjoy year three. Load and loads of love.....and kisses to Eliot.
