Happy Birthday to Johnny!

Ok, so I'm a few days late.  We decided it would work with the schedule to celebrate one day late.  After we celebrated his birthday, I was a good girl and came immediately downstairs to blog about it.  I uploaded the pictures to the computer...and then started to cry.  Seriously, all I had was a small section of picture for ANY of the pictures I uploaded.  I thought I had lost them for good and was ready to throw the camera AND the computer out the window.  Instead, I walked away and did what I always do, let Chris fix my problem for me.  Of course it was one of those fixes where he came home, looked over my shoulder while I enlarged a picture and realized that Picasa is kindly cropping all of my pictures for me when it puts them in their folder.  Such is life and thankfully the problem is fixable!  That's my excuse and I'm stickin' to it!  ;)

On to the birthday boy!  John just turned three and he is crazy and wild as always.  He is full of life and has LOTS of energy!  He loves, loves, LOVES his vehicles (thus the request for an airplane cake) and can always be found with some type of vehicle in his hand and some type of motor noise on his lips.  Except when he is making his vhicles talk to each other.  Imagine a high pitched voice saying, "Hi, I am geen motor-kycle," to which comes the same voice replying, "Oh, that's nice.  I am beeg dump truck."  Cut the poor boy some slack...he does have sisters afterall.  He is the kindest three year old you'll ever meet.  He knows when to say "please" and "thank you" and "you're welcome" and does not need to be prompted.  He can play for hours on end by himself if he is in the mood, but also has moods where he would MUCH rather pester his sisters!  They LOVE can't stand that.  We have been working on the potty training thing, but he has decided he wants NOTHING to do with it.  Some days he is a champ, but usually he can't even be talked into trying even for m&m's.  Really?  What kid says no to m&m's? 

Overall, he makes me so glad that I have the chance to raise a precious little boy!  I can't wait to see where he takes us this next year!
