this many

My baby, my first baby, turned three yesterday. I have a three year old.

-

He's our little (big) ball of energy and humor and creativity and light and happiness and trickiness and he can roar very loud. Especially in public. Today he peeled a clementine by himself and told me, "Mom, I learned how to peel! Now that I am three I learned how to peel." Day one of being three, learned to peel. Write it down. We've got 364 more days and 364 more things to learn this year. I want him to slow down and I also can't wait to see who he will be and what he will know. I love him so much it scares me. He turned me into a mom and I am so so glad.

  5. I can't believe he is already that old. Just the other day I was going through old pictures and I came across one of YOU being pregnant with Clark. I should send it to you.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Roooooaaaarrr!

  9. what a sweet post.

    my little babe isn't even here yet and I'm already dreading the day I hop on my blog and say 'my baby is three' And by that, I mean I just don't want time to fly by so fast.

    but I am eager to see what he will do on his first day of being three. what will it be?

  11. Oh, Erin. You made me cry. You are an awesome writer (but I'm sure you already know that).

    I've had a 3-year-old since September...and I can attest that it is a very fun age. Very fun...albeit a little loud. Mine doesn't roar, but - my! - can she scream! And I think she's going to be a soprano. ;)
