Today you turn three! Three!! You are no longer a baby, you are a little man now. Where has time gone? It feels like yesterday we brought you home from the hospital and started our journey to parenting. I still can’t believe they trusted US to leave the hospital with you. I remember that feeling quite vividly. The feeling that we were now responsible for a little baby boy’s well being. We were responsible to nurture you and keep you safe. Oh, how we cherish those moments as brand new parents! Being your parents has been one of the most rewarding things we have been blessed with.
Growing up you turned into such a sweet boy and we are so proud to be your parents. You say please and thank you any time you ask for something. You are a terrific big brother and love your sissy so much! One of my favorite things to watch is when you make her laugh and then you both start laughing at each other. Your favorite song for the past two years has been Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Every step, couch, or chair instantly becomes a “wall” for you to climb on and sing Humpty Dumpty, then fall down. You love to sing! One of your favorite things to do is curl up in the rocker with me as I try to put Emma to sleep. You’ll say – Kenneth “songing”, mommy? – and then start singing “Jesus Loves Me” so that she’ll fall asleep. “Pench fries” and “supica” (romanian soup) are your favorite things to eat. Playgrounds are your favorite places to be at. You make friends immediately and don’t shy away from introducing yourself to other children. You love the water, and bath nights are your favorite. When we go to the beach you never want to go back up to the room. These are just a few of the things that we love about you!
Happy third birthday, Kenneth James! You are a sweetheart and we are proud of the little boy you have become!
Mommy, Daddy & Emma
