Kayce had a family party on the day of his birthday and then got to have a party with his closest friends the following Saturday. It was hosted at the Schaumburg Park District which had a kick-butt playroom and was bigger and better than we expected. Thanks to all who attended and made both parties extra special for Kayce!1 Comment on Kayce’s 3rd Birthday Parties
A couple of notes about this photo. This is truly one I believe we will look back on in 20 years and immediately get taken aback to the day. It was shot on a snowy Chicago morning just days before Christmas. I was working from home and took a break to go out and shovel, when we decided to take an extended break and have a snow date. The result here is probably the first photo in Conor’s 14+ months of life where both of the boys sat still and genuinely smiled at the same time.
Moments after this was taken, Kayce grabbed a wad of snow and winged it at Dawn, then yelled “Snowball!!”. Which writing it does not sound extraordinary, but the fact that we had never taught him how to make or even what a snowball was astounded Dawn and I. Truly something he “picked up along the way”.
It’s days like this I wish I could get stuck on rewind, forever.3 Comments on The Brothers Grimm
Three years old! Every parent says it, and I’m no different. I am floored by how quickly my first baby has grown into a little boy. Dawn and I both agreed this morning that Kayce really did not have a “terrible twos” phase. He certainly had/has his moments, but for the most part has always been a genuinely happy and easy to please boy. Conor, is a different beast altogether.
Happy 3rd Birthday Bear, we love you to pieces!1 Comment on Kayce’s 3rd Birthday
