BabyBoy is 3 Years Old!

Yesterday, BabyBoy turned three. years. old! Our BabyBoy... The Big Guy, Big, BooBoo, Sweet Guy, Lovebug, Buggy, BugBug, Boost, Big Sweet Guy, Lovie, Loves, LoveLove... really, we're glad he knows his real name, hehe!

June 2007: A little look back: Our little sweet had surgery the morning after he was born and was such a strong and courageous little guy. He spent two weeks and two days in the NICU, though it felt like an eternity the doctors and nurses said could have easily been months. So many people were praying, to God be the glory!!

He had tubes in each little nostril, his mouth, a central line in his right inner thigh, and IVs in his little hands. We were with him from the morning and didn't leave the hospital almost until or until morning. Daddy is singing to him and telling him what a great job he's doing!

Sweet baby, look at that sweet grip! He's going to hold our hand like that when he goes to college right?

We finally got to take him home!!!

BabyBoy,

You are such an incredible blessing and an amazing little guy. Everyday is such a fun adventure with you. You are a learning machine and we love to see how proud you are when you can do new things, because we are equally proud of you. You are quite the strong willed little guy but your spirit is so sweet, caring, and funny, and you are such a good boy (we have worked a lot on discipline and obedience with the help of great friends and family, and some books too :)). There is not one day that goes by that you don't make us laugh!

We love seeing your interests blossom. You absolutely love music. You have since before you were born. And that makes your musician Mommy so happy. You love to sing, make up your own songs to tunes you know and ones that you compose all by yourself. You love to play the piano, guitar, your little 1/4 sized violin, and you can make a set of drums from any materials you can find and use chopsticks, straws, or anything you can concoct for drumsticks. :) You are so creative and imaginative!

You are also a great little sportsman. You can get swish it up feet from the basket, in your indoor basketball net. And you can throw and catch like nobody's little business, making Daddy very proud.

You continue to be a little talker and conversationalist, and we love it. We love hearing everything you have to say and the sweet, fun, and funny thoughts you are thinking. You love to talk on the phone and just walk around and talk about anything and everything you can think of. It makes all of us laugh.

The beach is just one of the things you have been talking about for months and months. You love the beach. You've only been twice, once when you were teeny and once when you were almost 2 1/2 and you've been talking about it pretty much every day since our last trip. You are so excited to tell everybody that "we're going to the beach in Julyyyy." We are so excited to go together too!

Since you were teeny, you have always made people smile all around you. You love people and we love that about your character. You love to say hi to "people" and "everybody" anywhere people are. You love having conversations with everybody and just telling them about whatever you are excited about at that time. When we have dinner with Great Grandpa and Great Grandma in the dining hall at their condo, all of the residents and staff get so excited when they see you. You go up to people's tables and talk with them, and they can't stop asking when you and your little brother are going to come back.

We love you so much and are so excited to continue seeing the little man of God that you are becoming. You love singing praise songs, especially from the Veggie Tales cd we listen to in the car. You sing right along to all the songs with you little microphone. You always ask to go into the next service at church, after Sunday school, so you can listen to the big service's music. You love to pray for our meals and before you go and your little bro go for nitenite. (And you can't go to bed until you've given your baby brother a kiss and a cuddle, and you kiss Mommy's belly, snuggle, and say, "Nitenite Littlest," too.) You pray, "...and thank you God for all of our boys" even after you name everybody in the family, it always makes us smile. You love Sunday school and always get the best reports when we pick you up. They always say how polite you are too, saying please and thank you, and "no thank-you" which makes everyone giggle because it is so cute coming out in your two, now three, year old voice.

We love you sooooo much baby!

Daddy and Mommy

P.S. Oh and you love your veggies! We actually have to tell you to eat other things on your plate if you want more veggies, hehe, you good silly boy!

Party dets to come! {...fun little family celebration yesterday and the big party is next month :)}
