Happy Third (Month) and Happy Third (Year)!

This past week we had one of those fun once-in-a-life time dates - our third-born turned three years old on the same day that our newest turned three months old! How cool is that?

As a matter of fact, it was almost down to the minute, considering that the 3yo was born at 9:33 a.m. (in 2012) and the baby was born at (approximately) 10:06 a.m. (in 2014).

Fun stuff!

The 8yo spent some time decorating the house with streamers and coloring pictures for the occasion. Presents will come later when grandparents visit.

We celebrated with a special birthday dinner (egg rolls!) and homemade chocolate cake and ice cream.

Someone may or may not have gotten into the ice cream before he was supposed to.

We also took time off of school to work on making Valentine's Day boxes and valentines for our homeschool group's Valentine's Day party, which was held on the following day.

Here's the picture we took of the two of them together!

The 3yo is currently gaining multiple new words every day and stringing them together in increasingly complex ways. He alternates being cute as a bug with throwing some pretty good tantrums (he still doesn't hold a candle to the 8yo's former achievements in that category, though!). He is a natural-born helper, and a bit of a neat-freak (hurray!!).

The 3mo is an absolute darling - our easiest baby so far. She is treating us to some charming smiles, and has added some adorable cooing and chattering to her repertoire of cuteness. She's also working hard on turning onto her side. We are all enjoying her thoroughly, and the boys dote on her.

Here's a quick video of some cuteness:

My husband videoed while the 8yo entertained baby. The loud noises in the background are the 3yo "helping" me get lunch - heaven help us all.

Happy birthday to all involved!


  1. Happy birthday to both of your beautiful children. :) What a fun double birthday to celebrate!
