Happy happy Birthday to my Joshua!! My pickle in the middle turned three yesterday!! I can’t believe it! Time has gone SO fast. It feels like he was just born. Flying into out our lives on the practice push lol! He is THE sweetest boy with THE biggest personality. He lights up every room with his big brown eyes and his sweet smile. He makes us all laugh and keeps us on our toes. He’s bright, spunky and inquisitive. He’s equal parts wild non-stop motion and squishy snuggle-bug. I say all of the time that I wish I had even just an ounce of his free spiritedness.
All he wanted for his birthday was for his mom, dad, brothers, grandparents, and uncle to go with him to see Firetrucks, followed by dinner and cake with the whole family. So that is exactly how we celebrated on his birthday.
Above is a look back at some of my favorite Josh moments over the past three years. As well as some photos from the fire station visit on his birthday.
A few fun facts about Joshua that I want to remember so I’m documenting it here:
He is currently advanced beyond his age in both language and gross motor skills. Speaking more than 7-8 word sentences and combining thoughts together. Runs and moves non-stop. Climbs and does all the activities his older brother does. He is our dare devil, and will try anything. He loves to jump on his trampoline and to jump off the diving board. He loves to swim. He loves Mac & Cheese, fruit and milk. He loves his brothers.
And to my Joshua – I hope you always keep your sense of wonderment. Have fun, fun, fun every single day. Remain carefree and free spirited. And know that you can do BIG things in this little world. I love you with all my heart!
