Davis' Turns the Big T-H-R-E-E

Last month we celebrated Davis' 3rd birthday! Davis had been looking forward to this day for months... and I mean months! I think it was back in June when he first started asking if it was his birthday yet. So morning after morning I had to tell him "Not yet!" One day I got tired of answering the same question each morning, so I told him "You will know it's your birthday when you wake up and there are tons of balloons in your room." This tactic actual worked... most days at least! When Davis' birthday did finally arrive we were at the beach (Amelia Island to be exact). I had kind of forgotten this aspect when I had originally told him about the balloons but it was easy to overcome but maybe not the same effect as if he was in his own room. We put Davis down to bed and Matt, Granddaddy, and I got to work blowing up 75 balloons that we could put in the room that all 4 of us were sharing! A balloon or two may or may not have popped in the transfer but amazingly it didn't wake Davis up! Oh and one thing to mention is yes, he is sleeping in on a palate in the closet.. I mean cubby hole! He actually liked that too!

My sweet TWO year old sleeping his sweet two year old dreams surrounded by balloons (pictures don't do it justice)!

Waking up in the morning to his THREE year old birthday! Happy Birthday sweet boy!Crawling in bed with Mommy and Daddy before the day really began. It was a sweet, sweet, silly time with our big boy. My favorite part of the day.Eating his birthday pancakes! Davis was quite impressed that Daddy made him circle pancakes! We usually make them into mickey mouse or trains (from a cookie cutter we have @ home) but the circles (which happen to be the shape of the month at school) really excited him! What can Daddy say- he aims to please!The day was spent recovering from colds we all had, a little bit of beach time, and a little bit of pool time. Jennifer & Jimmy arrived just in time to grill out steaks & eat some cake! Which is important because this birthday celebration wasn't only for Davis but for Uncle Jimmy too! Jimmy turned 32 one day before Davis turned 3! This happened to be very convenient for our fancy cakes we made :)
Davis later told me "I turned three & Jimmy turned 2!" Hmmm.... not sure we've ever counted high enough to 32 for him to understand!
Being three never tasted so good! Happy 3rd Birthday sweet boy! Thank you for three of the best years of your mommy's & daddy's life!
