Birthday Boy




Our little baby just turned 3 today! He makes our hearts sing with happiness and we love him to pieces.

We love. . .

His pudding cheeks-- when I take him with me to a class that I teach many of the older children love to come and see him and pinch his cheeks and say they're cute and chubby;

His bright mind--he delights us with his thoughts. One day while looking in my eyes he said "I can see Soren in your eyes."

His enthusiasm for life and the little things in it--his gusto to create playful art, to dance, to sing, to imagine and to love;

His enormous heart--last night, the night before his Birthday, he decided to wrap a present for his dad. I gave him some tape, he found some paper and he wrapped one of his books. I finished it off with a bow and he kept saying "Daddy will be so impressed!" With his precious wrapping job (taped up and part hanging out) he presented it to him the next morning.

His morning and bedtime cuddles when he's so contented to be right next to mom and dad (usually nuzzled in between);

3 year old sense of humor and wit-- he memorizes books we read and uses phrase he's learned during the day

His honesty--tonight went something like this with Soren recounting what happened with regards to something he wanted--"mama said yes and you said no. I told mama you said yes."

His little sweetness when he says "you are soooo cute."

. . .and SO much more that it's endless!

Happy birthday little Soren. You are delightful. I hope to someday meet you in person. What a wild cake! Is that a chocolate rabbit on top? mmmmm..

Cammie said...

Yes Melody-- and your the first to comment on the Huge bunny! I did a bit of improvising bc my baking pans are all back in the states so. . .the cake was tasty and homemade with a funny bunny on top. Luckily Soren was happy with it.

And the recipe for the cake and frosting were both so easy and good. Maybe I'll post them. . .

Happy Easter too!

Happy Birthday to Soren. She does have the most adorable cheeks in the whole worlds. I like Jason's beard. I think it makes him look sophisticated. Does it tickle?

Wow! I can't believe you have a three year old. Time flies! Soren is so super cute. One day we should have a singles day reunion and have all of our kids meet. They'd probably hate that. Ha ha!
