A Birthday Letter from Mommy (and Daddy)


Where do I begin? My little sweet baby boy is 3 today, and I can't believe it. It's been a big year for you. I feel like this year you have grown and matured so much. You are truly becoming a little man and I love watching you grow up!

You have hit some pretty big milestones this year. We said good bye to the paci back in the fall. You are almost completly potty trained! You have switched rooms and are sleeping in your new bed with no problems!!

You are doing great at school! You have had two amazing teachers this year, Mrs. Jennifer and Mrs. Jackie, who have taught you so much. Your vocabulary is so big and you are very much a talker! When we have been out, several people have asked us how old you were, and then complimented your talking. You know all your ABC's, numbers, and can even count in Spanish! Every day you come home with a new song, and you love to sing! You love all your friends at school and I love to get glimpses of you playing with them when I pick you up. You are the lone boy in a class full of girls!

You are so.stinkin. funny! You crack your daddy and I up every single day!! You are copying phrases we say and there are so funny coming out of your little mouth!

Your main passion right now is sports. You love to watch sports with daddy on TV and you have to play that sport right then. You are so smart when it comes to them as well. Just recently while watching some March Madness you told me you need another basketball goal to make a court! From shooting hoops, to passing a football, you know it all. But by far your favorite to watch and play is baseball! You amaze me at how well you already know and love the game, and at how good you are!

A year later and you still are a Yo Gabba Gabba fan! However you do have some new favs, such as: The Bubble Guppies, Jake and the NeverLand Pirates, Dinosaur Train, and Dora! You love Dora!! It's so funny to listen to you talk and interact with the TV. You also are learning all the songs and will walk around singing them!

I still can't say that you are a great eater. You are my kid after all, ha! Some days you will eat great and some days you could care less about food. I hope as you grow, you will start to try new things.

You have such a sweet little heart and have become very aware of different emotions. You always ask your daddy and I if we are happy or mad or sad! It's hilarious...when I am having to get onto you for immediately ask "Are you mad?" or "Are you sad?". You are also very polite. You say please, thank you and we are working on when to say excuse me!

Even with all this good stuff said about you, let's be real here, you are a typical toddler and go through "those days"! You can completly drive us crazy at times! You like to whine alot some days and it can wear us out! Your listening skills are something we work on every day! I will say that 95% of the time you are a very happy, well behaved kid and we have been pretty lucky so far!

Your only child days have been numbered  for awhile now! I cannot wait to see you in big brother mode in a couple of short weeks! I try and make it a point to talk about Levi with you every day! You know who he is, where he is, where his room is, and what his toys are! I'm sure there will be an adjustment period once he gets here, but I am pretty sure you are going to be a great big brother....we will see though!!

Mommy and daddy love you more than anything! You have changed are lives in so many ways, and we are so blessed to have you as our little boy! I wish you could stay this age for awhile longer, b/c I truly enjoy it! I can't wait to see what the 3's hold for you! Happy Birthday Lane! 


Mommy and Daddy
