HAPPY 3RD BIRTHDAY ETHAN PERRY!!
We had so much fun celebrating our sweet little man turn THREE a couple weeks ago! Three years...my, oh, my. Wasn't he just a tiny five-pound peanut that literally fit in the palms of our hands? This birthday was definitely special because it's the first year he actually understood it was his birthday.
We totally played it up before his big day and a couple days a week he would ask, "mommy, it's my birthday?" I would say it's coming up soon and ask what he wanted...and he would respond with one of the following: cupcakes, chocolate, brownies, excavators, and ice cream! Haha. His love for all things construction made me get excited to have dump trucks, bulldozers, and excavators as part of the décor.
We had a little party the weekend before his actual birthday with all the grandparents, Uncle Jeffrey, Aunt Kristen, Jayden, and Kaleb. He had a blast opening his presents and LOVED everything he got - a tool belt, a tool box and set of tools, a construction vest and hard hat, a power drill, a new bulldozer, a Radio Flyer tricycle - just to name a few!
He hasn't put his tools down since his birthday either! He uses his hammer to build houses, his wrench to fix the door, his saw to cut down the tree...and a million other things he uses his imagination for! To top his big day off, he indulged in brownies and ice cream...happy boy!
His real birthday fell on a Monday so we started the day off with a special birthday breakfast where Emerson and I (really just me!) sang "Happy Birthday" to Ethan. Once daddy got home from work, we went to his birthday dinner at Chick-Fil-A - his choice! They were so sweet and gave him a birthday balloon and a gift card for ice cream.
We always say how lucky we are to have our kids grow up with all their grandparents and extended family in their lives. It really means a lot seeing our families come together to celebrate our little munchkins! Ethan is so loved and brings everyone so much joy and happiness! We love you pumpkin!!
