Liam is 3!!

Last week, our son had his 3rd birthday.

Can you say, WHAA?!

It’s hard to believe time can fly so fast. We’re three years into this journey, and he has made such a mark. Life has forever changed because of our sweet kid. He is such a happy, observant, creative Goose. He is a kind and caring big brother. He is so affectionate to each person in his family, loves snuggles (and wrestling, of course), and gives fantastic compliments out of nowhere (he told me this morning that I am his best favorite mom in the world). Liam is super imaginative and can have fun with anything. His language skills have grown in leaps and bounds this year, and it is so fun to listen to his ever-expanding vocabulary. My mother-in-law has commented on how well he conjugates 😉

He is one cool kid, and we are SO proud.

This year, we had a  “3” party. He’s been looking forward to turning three for quite a while (there were a few months when he thought he was 3 instead of  2), so it seemed appropriate and simple.

We had a family get together at our house with food, balloons and streamers, and cake (having friends at the birthdays may enter the equation next year).

I let myself get so stressed about not making an awesome, go-all-out party with homemade everything, but at the party he announced it was “the best birthday I ever had”. It was a reminder to me check who I am really throwing these parties for. Cut yourself some slack, Mamas 🙂

    Creative party for the big “3”. Such a happy content, most of the time, kid.
