Jake turns 3!

Jake was SO excited for his birthday!!  Every day after he had his superhero party he'd ask me multiple times if it was his birthday.  I love this age.  He was so excited and grateful for everything he got.
We got him a strider bike and superman helmet.  He is getting better at it, but still not great.  I haven't taken him to practice though much at all because it is TOO.DANG.HOT.  After Halloween when it cools off again I want to take him out a lot to practice.

He also got a Captain America shield, new bath toys, and a Spider Man bank for his money.  (Sadly, he dropped it and it broke the first day).  So I took him to Target and let him pick out another one.  He chose a Batman one this time and has been extra careful with it.

My mom made him a construction truck cake, which he loved.  He seriously was in awe and when he saw it the first time excitedly said, "Is that for ME?"  It was the cutest.

Oh my gosh I love him.

This picture melted me a little.  My mom told me to come in the kitchen and I walked in and saw this.  Jake just staring at his cake - literally in awe.  He sat like this for a good 10 minutes.

I still can't believe Jake is three.  I know I saw this a lot about him, but I LOVE this boy so much.  I don't know if it's because I only have one boy, but the day he was born I just felt an extra special bond with him.  It is hard for me to discipline him at times because he gives me a sad face and it breaks me.  He is the first to tell me he loves me, the first to always say sorry, and always gives me the best hugs.  Happy Birthday buddy!


  1. What a great post! He is the nicest little boy ever and I love how much you love him. The picture of him staring at the cake is priceless!

  2. He is so sweet. That is so fun your mom was able to come and spend his birthday with him. That cake is adorable! I agree with Jeannette that picture is priceless!
