THREE.  It feels like it deserves all capital letters.  Three years old sounds way too grown-up for my little guy!  But here we are.  We didn’t have any big party but we spent Sunday the last week eating cupcakes and opening up every Planes toys under the sun; I sure hope we made Charlie feel loved and celebrated.  That’s all that really matters.

We had cupcakes at the beach one night last week to celebrate Meredith’s 6th birthday (which was in June) and Charlie’s 3rd.  Then on his actual birthday (Sunday) we had the family over for some fun and food.  And presents, of course.

Lots of Planes gifts and we went and saw the Planes Fire and Rescue movie. He is Planes obsessed! But he also got a new stacking train track set, a remote control car, a cute tent, clothes and this scooter. The scooter took a little while to get the hang of it, but I think he will like it.

Or Sammy will claim it as her own.

And more shots of him eating icing. I don’t think he even touches the cupcake.

So that was our low-key celebration for one very special THREE year old boy. And this means the end of the terrible twos.  Right?!  Just kidding, he woke up yesterday and had a complete meltdown about the cup his milk was in, sooo apparently three isn’t a magical cure for the tantrums 🙂

Happy birthday sweet Charlie! We love you so much!!!
