dear mister third birthday,
you are now three, and this is
what i know about you:

you are extremely sensitive...
and i love that about you.
please never be hardened by this world.

you are upside down inside out OBSESSED with:
your sweet daddy.
reading. (and i am LOVING reading "stuart little" with you)
anything basketball.
thomas the tank engine.
your uncle sammy.
shoes. never have i known a little boy to love shoes quite so fiercely.
anything soccer.
buzz lightyear.
and swimming
(or finding ANY WAY POSSIBLE to get wet).

you try to talk in a british accent...yep. what else can i say about this one?

you cleverly try to get me to laugh
when i'm disciplining you; to change the subject. (works almost every time)

you are determined....
you made up your mind to potty train (even when i was terrified and tried to hold you back...i know i'm horrible) and you never looked back.

you give the most hilarious,
thoughtful, and sweet prayers.
("thankful for he-man" was one from tonight's prayer)

we are madly in love with you...
happiest birthday wishes to our forever superbaby...
who's not such a baby anymore (daggers in my heart)

(pictures of our happy brithday party coming soon!)

Oh my heart! Wishing Mr B the happiest 3rd Birthday EVER!

Catie, those were such yummy endearing words. Let me tell ya... our munchkins would love eachother. Besides the British accent (which addmitedly I am jealouse that jax doesn't have lol), I could have been reading about Jax. These shots capture your luv so perfectly. Can't wait to see the party pics! Xo.

Oh my gosh I haven't seen little B. for so long and he has gotten huge! He is hands down one of the sweetest and most handsome boys. I can only imagine the amazing 3 years he's had with such loving and adoring parents. Happy Birthday sweet Bennett! I hope he had a wonderful day and I have no doubt he was surrounded by people who love him dearly. So glad you posted these pics!

What a sweet post for a sweet boy from a sweet mommy. Hopefully the Jazz will play this fall and you can really amp up the "anything basketball" obsession with some tickets:)
