We celebrated in really rad style on Sunday, but today it’s official. So, happy birthday my sweet, little man. I love you.
You guessed it…. a BIG GREEN TRACTOR birthday, with a little Wally, Lighting McQueen, and sharks thrown into the mix. All of his favorite people were there to help him celebrate AND blow out the candles.
Wes loves opening presents just as much as the next kid, but the funny thing about him is how much he LOVES opening up a card. Yes, a card. Don’t come to his parties without one. He’ll notice. AND, it’s even better if the card provides some sort of musical enjoyment or lighting effects.
and a birthday rhyme. “Roses are red, Violets are blue. It’s your birthday, how old are you?” He’s been listening over and over ever since. He wants to MEET Hoops and Yo Yo. I’ve been trying to explain they aren’t real. Is there a good way to get that across to a THREE year old? Anyone?
Wes finally got HIS VERY OWN tractor. Up to this point, he’s been getting the old hand-me-down tractors of Ty’s. There haven’t been any complaints so far, but we thought he’d enjoy having a NEW one for a change. This one has a built-in radio with digital tuner. It was a BIG, BIG SUCCESS.
Now, if only the weather would cooperate so he could ride it somewhere other than IN Grandma’s house.
Some things I want to remember about my little guy this year:
endless singing of “Big Green Tractor” – he knows all the words
long eyelashes that melt my heart
tickle fights in the living room with Daddy
dance moves that rank right up there with Christine’s (Seinfeld)
“Crap-Paw” (instead of Grandpa)
Snugglebug – he loves to cuddle with mama
waking up a million times throughout the night just to ask me to tuck him in again and again
getting to sleep in a “big boy” bed
his love for everything John Deere
his entirely hard-to-deal-with hair, especially after a few jumps on the trampoline
his love for DWago (Diego), dinosaurs, candy of any kind, Sonic (almost as much as Mama), grilled-cheese sandwiches, mandarin oranges, Scooby Doo, hot chocolate, going for a drive ANYWHERE, Target mini-pizzas (pizza hut), Batman, Grandma, Hot Wheels, and his brother who he absolutely adores.
Today is your day. It’s a great day to be THREE!
