My baby is three. How? I ask myself that question every year, usually everyday. How did he get so big? Where did this intelligent, independent “kid” come from? Where did my “baby” go?
I have been struggling with this post for several weeks now, should I document the day exactly as it unfolded? Would it be better to talk about Paddy and who he is? Should I just post some pictures and a little blurb about what is happening in each one? I don’t know.
The truth is, it’s been a rough couple of months. The baby doesn’t sleep, we hate where we live, we’re trying to buy a house…and Mister Paddy is in the throws of his threenage years. To add to it, I had what I thought would be the perfect day planned, but that fell through last minute and we had to improvise.
I had a lot on my mind, but I was determined to make this little man’s day great! And luckily, we did. He had a smile on his face the whole day. He got to eat at his favorite restaurant and see people that he loves. He got gifts and good food. It was a good day. For all of us. A full day of quality time that we all really needed.
So, to address my struggle, I’ll choose the last option, just a couple of great photos to show the love in our lives and the joy in our hearts as we celebrate the third anniversary of this beautiful child’s birth…
