Happy Birthday, Jersey!!!
We Officially Have a 3 Year-Old
Jersey is officially three! It’s hard to believe that our not-so-little man is now officially another year older. We are so very fortunate to have Jersey in our lives and we can’t wait to see where his life takes him. His birthday this year has been amazing and we wanted to share it with you!
This last year especially, we have seen the most growth in Jersey’s personality. He is kind and thoughtful and lives in a world all his own. He is nothing like his sisters and he has very little patience for their antics and it’s kind of great. He loves to play and just be a kid. We couldn’t be prouder to be his parents.
It’s Hard to Find the Right Words
I’ve been trying to write this blog for a few days now, but I haven’t been able to come up with the right words to express what life with Jersey has meant to us. He’s the first boy and the last child. Jersey has so much joy to share and it’s been amazing to see him grow. Maybe it’s hard because if I do write this blog, I have to admit that my baby boy is growing up and that is a hard pill to swallow.
A Birthday Party Fit For a Superhero
There was a small party for Jersey at home this year. Nothing nearly as big as last year, with everything going on, but we think he had a great time. We decorated the house with Monster Trucks and even scored a monster truck cake for the little man. He wore a cape and once he realized how much fun it could be, he got super into opening his presents.
It takes Jersey a little while to warm up and to no one’s surprise he hated being sung ‘Happy Birthday’ to, but I know that he truly had a wonderful time at his party. You can watch the full video we did on his party here. But what we did after his party was my favorite part. We all sat down as a family and shared our favorite pictures that we have made of Jersey over the years.
We have a rather large cache of pictures-shocking, I know. As a benefit of having a life that requires photography, we have a pretty steady stream of images and videos of our lives. A virtual scrapbook of sorts. And fortunately, we have been documenting our lives since before Jersey was born and that means that we have footage from every step of his life. We have plenty of pictures of the girls as infants but not nearly as much as we have of Jersey. I suppose we have our YouTube family to thank for that.
These moments looking back at all we have experienced with our little man just brought us so much joy and we couldn’t wait to share with you guys. You can watch it here if you haven’t already seen it. If it all sounds too sappy for you though, no worries, we have little interludes of Jersey singing and dancing to the hit song “Uptown Funk.”
Lucky Number Three
This has definitely been a weekend to remember for us. I highly recommend having a three year old. If they are anything like ours, they are smart, sweet, inquisitive, strong, brave, and will teach you more than you ever anticipated. Do you have a child turning three? How has your child changed since they were two? What personality traits are showing more often? We want to know! Please let us know in the comments if your child is anything like Jersey!
