To My Three Year Old


My darling Evan,

I have tried writing your birthday post several dozen times today, but I just can’t find adequate words.

You are just too much to contain in a single blog post. Too much personality. Too much charm. Too much mischief. Too much everything.

But, just right.

There hasn’t been a single day in the last three years that you haven’t brought joy to my life. Joy and laughter. And so much love.

I hope you are always as sweet and loving and funny and unique and confident and magnetic as you are today. I know that you will be.

I feel blessed to live my life with you and I love you with all of my heart.

Happy Birthday,

Your Mommy

      First, happy birthday to the little charmer!

      Second, is Ann saying I’m STILL going to be tired (more tired??) in another two years? My youngest turns two in a couple weeks and I’ve been counting on things getting easier…Way to burst my bubble!

    Aw, Jill. Happy Birthday to your sweet, adorable, gorgeous little baby. 3 years old, my goodness! My Dimitry will be turning 3 end of January. I can’t believe how fast our babies grow! Slow down, babies! All the best to your little man, a lifetime of happiness and giggles and smiles! xoxo

    Wow, great post! How lucky are you to have such an amazing angel for a son, and how lucky he is to have an amazing mama like you! My son just turned 2 a few weeks ago…there’s something special about the whole mama/son relationship, isn’t there? Every day I wake up in awe of the fact that I created this incredible creature that makes me laugh and smile every. single. day. Relish the moment and cherish every kiss.

    He’s turned three already? Why did you let him do that? I’m not letting my third child turn three this February. No chance in hell, I’m letting that one slide.

    On a side note: happy birthday to your handsome fella.
