I can not believe my littlest babe is 3! It has been such a joy watching this gentle little boy grow. We are so proud of all the things he is doing now. Just this past week he started writing his name, using the toilet pretty much all the time, and climbing out of his crib just to check on us!
We love you to the moon and back, Max.
We had a really simple Thomas the Train themed party out at my mom’s petting farm. It was truly magical.
He loved throwing the bricks back into Diesel after he had a derail! We also played an animal eye spy game.
He got sad when he realized the wind was too strong for his candles to stay lit!
He was thrilled with his gifts from family. For presents from friends, we did a used book exchange again. I love doing this at parties! Then everyone leaves with a “new” book instead of a bunch of tiny throw a way things and Max is not overwhelmed with a bunch of gifts.
Our youngest babe celebrated his second birthday on the first. What a lovely celebration it was. The morning started out with cuddles from everyone in our bed and singing of Happy Birthday.
Then it was off to the kitchen for breakfast and a look at what birthday goodies were set out on the table.
This goofy boy was giddy by all the Thomas shirts he received from family, 5 I think! For presents from friends we had a used book exchange. This is always such a nice way to end a party and an easy replacement to all the normal goody bag stuff.
Each day as the children arrive at my at home preschool, I have work set out for them to explore on our little table. This work ranges from pushing toothpicks into the holes of a salt shaker to squeezing clothes pins on and off a ribbon.
Max always goes straight to this table and works for many minutes on the activities.
This reminds me of the art materials I use to set out for Ethan and Madeline to explore before Max was born. Children really do love to “work” and the do not even know that’s what it is!!
Monday Ritual: one or two photos, just a few words. Enjoy!
This babe of mine has a new love for trains. This new love has helped to bond the siblings even more, as they are always wanting to play trains together. (By the way, the train table was my awesome $15.00 garage sale find!)
One. This first birthday has happened twice before in our family. It is such a big milestone, an accomplishment. It is just with this babe I can not get over how quickly this year has flown by. Saying one, is still so odd. So sad(because I know all too well how fast these years go.)
One does suit Max though. He is suddenly standing on his own and even climbing up furniture. Oh, how we love this sweet little guy.
Birthday pictures of Max’s wonderful birthday celebration. He was surrounded by family and shown so much love!
Happy first Birthday Max. I hope you have a wonderful year full of warmth and love. May you continue to be gentle, kind and oh so sweet!
