My baby turned three this past week. WHAT? Three years old, I can hardly believe it. He is such a little man, probably due to the fact that he is constantly trying to keep up with his older brother. He is such an incredibly calm spirit with a determination and grit that is well beyond his years, and for such a young boy he is so very self assured. He amazes me every single day and it is a privilege to be his mama. It was such a joy to shower him with love for his birthday!
I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating…we are so lucky to spend out summers on this little lane of ours. We’ve known all the families on the lane for twenty years now, and many of them have been here for generations before us. They all look forward to Vik’s party every summer, and I love knowing that he’ll grow up celebrating with this wonderful group of people. We kept the party centered around old-fashion fun: sack races, pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey, Simon Says, clothespin in the bottle drop, face painting and of course, a pinata. We made finger sandwiches, cut up a few big watermelons, and made mini-chocolate cupcakes. Everyone had a blast, Vik especially. Happy birthday my sweet boy…we love you so!
