Happy Birthday to Koo

It was Koo's birthday yesterday and he was thrilled to tell anyone within earshot he was one, two, three (holding up three fingers)!! He and I went to our local grocery store bakery and he got a Bismark donut (round chocolate frosting with custard in the middle) and milk. We talked about what being three might bring: using the potty all the time, wearing real boy underwear, and going to school. Such big things coming up for him.

I take this time to thank my Husband for encouraging me to stay home with our children from the start. As I sat there across from him, I kept thinking-"Has it really been three years?" and "This is my baby". He got a kick out of my retelling of when he was a baby-how he couldn't sit by himself, talk, or walk. He was quick to tell me he was NOT a baby and that he is a big boy now. End of babytalk. They grow up too fast. Thank goodness I was there for every cuddle time after waking up from a nap and to see him everyday of his life (except in August one night when Husband and I went on an anniversary getaway). I love this child and I can't believe I was lucky enough to be his mom. Thank you God.
