Dan turns 3

So this boy turns 3 today!

His third year had been a joy to me because we understood each other more and he has the language to tell us how he feels and what he wants. He’s really quite adorable and made me laugh a lot. It’s a far cry from his first and second year in which I found myself wanting to be away from him; he drove me mad. ๐Ÿ˜ซ #beingreal

He’s a simple boy. Give him Duplo and books and they could occupy him for a good number of hours. He’s not into puzzles, unlike his sister. Loves animals, all sorts, but only those that are found on print. If he meets any creatures, he would be the first to hide behind a closed one and cry murder. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Of all the slices of cakes I bought, he chose this piece. It’s hardly a surprise since he adores chocolate, just like the mom.

We didn’t have anything special for his celebration, just a gathering of family members over a meal, for this is how we celebrate birthdays. It’s our family tradition.

I’m thankful for this family (in-laws). Each one of them has helped in their own capacity and they have made parenting a tad easier for the hubs and me.

Thank you, God, for his growth. Our prayer is that the boy would grow up to know and love You, to be a man after Your heart.
