Happy Birthday Little Man!

Dear Bud-ah,

Today is your third birthday! Can you believe it?! Three years ago today you came screaming into the world! You peed on the doctor (after I doused him for breaking my water during a contraction), and you were absolutely perfect. I held you in my arms in the delivery room for 45 minutes. You kept tasting the air with your tongue. It must have felt so different to you.

You spent the next several months sleeping in my arms. I cuddled you more than you'll ever know. Now you are turning into a little man. Your baby fat is getting thinner; you are growing taller. You have come a long way over the past year, and you are truly an amazing little boy!

I love to hear your sweet voice each night as you say, "mommy, mommy, daddy...can you tuck MY in?" And I love the way you go running through the house yelling a quote from your favorite movie (Spirit), "IN A TIME WHEN HORSES RAN FREEEEE!" Actually, it doesn't matter where you are when you run...you'll say it! The Tigger-on-wheels is your favorite rage of late. You get going on that thing SO FAST you can literally do doughnuts in our livingroom! Sometimes you get so wound up that you evidently go bezerk. No truly, it's as though there is so much energy contained in that little 31 lb. body that you simply overflow with vigor and excitement. I get a kick out of you!

And I will never forget how much I love to see your quiet smile when you stand beside my bed each morning (before the sun comes up), and I put you back where you were for the first several months of your life...in my arms, right where you belong. Now and Always.

I love you so much, Bud-ah.

  8. I figured we should chat and be friendly now, b/c after Bud-ah recieves his birthday present from us, we may not be on speaking terms. (And NO, answering machine recordings of the Lone Ranger theme music and horse's naying sounds that the toy makes WILL NOT be tolerated as pay back, you must simply wait for Jack's birthday)
