My little man is officially 3! He asks me almost every day, "Mommy am I 3?" and I say yes, and he says, "ALL DAY???" He loves it! I can't believe he's 3. These have been some of the best years of our lives. He brings so much joy and laughter to us and everyone he's around. He has an awesome vocabulary and sometimes I think he acts much older than 3, and then he has a melt down and wants his passy and then I remember, indeed, he is 3! :)
He loves Tucker and is such a great big brother! He is doing great in school and we get compliments on him often, now that will make a mommy smile. :) I'm not saying he's perfect by any means, because none of us are, but God blessed us greatly with 2 of the most precious boys I know! :)
This year, his birthday fell on a Sunday. I took cupcakes to his school on Friday for his birthday and when I picked him up, he had this crown on... "King Tyler is 3". So I think he had a good day! Later that day we loaded up and headed to the mall. We thought it might be fun to let him "Build a bear, well he wanted a koala". He had fun doing that and even put a growling noise in it, didn't really know koalas growled, but ours does! :) Then we went to Sams for a "sample" lunch! Saturday was the big party day! I had told myself that I was going to enjoy the day and not get caught up in making everything "perfect". It turned out great and we had an awesome day. The weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we were thankful for that. We decided to have a dinosaur party at the church. I had made all the kids dinosaur shirt party favors for them to wear at the party. I think they turned out pretty cute and only ended up costing me about $2 a shirt so I thought that was a pretty awesome deal! The kids enjoyed playing on the play ground, digging to dinosaur eggs in the dirt (eggs filled with plastic dinosaurs), eating pizza and cake and ice cream. We also had pin the horn on the dinosaur, but I think the kids were a little to young. Ty enjoyed doing it and Eliott and Chloe, but that was about it! Oh well. :) It was just a laid back party and I hope everyone enjoyed just fellowshipping and being out in the gorgeous weather. We had about 47 people there, so it was a great turnout and I enjoyed myself as much as Tyler did, I think! I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves. But we are so blessed and thankful for all our family and friends. Wish more of our family was close and would have been able to have been there, but that's what happens when you live far from your family! Also, Tyler's big gift was a treehouse David and Bradley built! It's great and I know the boys will love it for years to come! They just finished it so I don't have any pictures yet, but I'll get some, so for now just think a sided upside down shooting house complete with a door, ladder, and a front porch. :) Happy Birthday my precious 3 Year old!
