celebrating our boy

On Sunday we celebrated the day, three years ago, that this wickedly handsome, crazy smart, fiercely intense, wildly imaginative, first class snuggler of a  little boy joined our family.

The day before the four of us went to the movies for some popcorn, Planes and lunch out.  The day of was a simple one with two sets of grandparents, a mama-made Very Hungry Caterpillar cake, temporary tattoos, and a Spiderman backpack filled with the superheros he loves so much.

Oh, these pictures and milestones that keep reminding us of just how those long days turn into short years.

And Motherhood breaks my heart once again.

go gently + be wonderful

    I know. Every birthday is bittersweet. Just wait until they become teenagers, and you start thinking “Okay, I guess we have her for another 6 or 7 years at least…”

    But your your little man is still so little. Happy Birthday!
