A 3 year old

Finally! Finally! Finally!  Jake is 3!  I know when my little babes are growing up, it goes by so fast, but seriously, Jake was 2 for forever. Forever.  His second year was not so hot and I look forward to seeing what my Jake will become in year 3.  
Jake...is Jake.  If you know him personally, you know what I mean.  This little boy has come into his own so much this past year.  He loves to make faces in the mirror-and dance in the mirror-and look at his clothes in the mirror.  He loves Jake :)  He is the goofiest little kid I have ever seen-and the sweetest.  But, man, oh man, does he have a temper.  Luckily, that doesn't rear itself very often.  Jake is aggressive, hard playing, rough and tumbling and so gentle with [other, not his brother] babies.  He loves to learn and play puzzles on the kindle and count and draw shapes with help.  He can make friends with most anyone, but can just as easily entertain himself alone.  
This little boy has been such a light in my life.  I was so afraid what was going to happen to him when Daniel left this Earth, but he has shown me so much about unconditional love and growth.  
I saw this on pinterest (of course) and from now until they are 18, I will ask them these questions.  Because I am a sap and love tradition :)  The book layout has yet to be figured out.

  1. Haha, what "Jake" responses!! I love that idea and think it's a great way to kind of freeze him in time, at each age. His little personality has truly been a blessing to you and I'm so glad for you that you have such loveable (and loving) boys. God knew what He was doing when He created them inside of you, knowing exactly what you would need. Man, I love that silly little boy!!! ;-)

    PS- Of COURSE the Mustang's his favorite- like Uncle Grom's car!!

  2. Love it! I especially liked how the Bible book was his favorite book! Happy Birthday to Jake!!!

  3. Man, I never would have guessed the kiddo likes cupcakes ;-)
