Happy 3rd Birthday Solon....

Dear Solon,
How can you possibly be 3?  I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday.  We went in the night before to prepare for you to come out and I could NOT sleep, I was so excited to see who God knit together in my womb and it was YOU.  The moment I saw you and held you for the first time I fell more in love with you than I knew was possible.  My heart grew 10 sizes that day.  You made me a mommy, the best job I have ever taken on.  Each day, you learn something new, grow, and mature but you will always be my baby.  You still come to me to kiss your boo-boos, snuggle in for a quick love and hug, like to cuddle before bed, and I love to whisper "you are the bestest boy in the whole whole world" to which you repeat it back.  I love singing songs with you with our own words, watching you pour over your trains and trucks with such imagination.  You have a bounce in your step every where you go and you are so kind-hearted and polite (most of the time, you do like to boy things like burp and toot ;).  You are a doting brother, watching out for Vera, shephearding her, alerting mom of her antics, sharing your toys, wrestling her, kissing her and giving her love.  You love, love, love to be with your daddy and always jump up when you hear the garage door signaling Daddy returning home.  You love to go on "man dates" to the man-store (aka Menards) and be daddy's assistant on his projects.  You love ice cream and our family outings to all the local shops.   The love of sweets goes beyond ice cream, you are just like your daddy, WANTING dessert all the time ;).  You are cautious on a first attempt of anything but once you try something once you are eager to do it again and again and again.  You love to tell stories and say "remember that" (you have an amazing memory) and you love to ask "why, why, why, why, why, why" until mommy doesn't have the answers.  You ask God every night to go the swimming pool - you just love to be in water - any kind is fine with you - tub, lake or pool :).  There is not a ball you can't throw and I might add you have a great arm and killer spiral on the football - it is impressive.  Stuffed animal abound from your bed and your favorites are kitty and Pellet the hamster.  Blue blanket and Great-Grandma's quilt are also close by when you sleep.  Most days we watch an episode or 2 of your FAVORITE show "The Wonder Pets"...which just happens to be your 3rd birthday party theme.  This year, you are SO excited for your party and cannot wait to have all your friends over, have cake and open presents.  It is fun to watch you get so excited about things these days.  You love your grandparents and cousins so much.  You love to read books, especially the bible and you are learning how to pray.  It has been such a year of growth buddy and mommy is so blessed to be home to watch it all. Daddy and I are so proud of you.  We love, love, love watching the boy God has made you to be develop before our eyes.  We pray that God continues to help us shepheard your heart.  We love you so much.   Happy 3rd Birthday Buddy....here are some pictures to remind you of all the fun you have had this past year!

Love to the bestest boy in the whole, whole world!
