My Three Year Old

My baby turned 3 yesterday. And, let me tell you, that kid knows how to party! He had the best day and asked if we could do it again as he was getting ready for bed last night. Everyday would be his birthday if his stick-in-the-mud parents would just let him!

In honor of his big day, I wanted to share a few things that I love about my sweet boy...

Davis is so cuddly! He'll crawl up in my lap with a book and snuggle up to me, put his arms around my neck and ask me to read with him. Did I mention that he, at the ripe old age of 3, has perfected the art of "kissing up"?

Baby Davis, about one month old

Davis loves being a brother. Drew (or Drewy, as Davis calls him) has had a shadow since Davis learned to crawl. I always worried that with nearly 6 years between them that they wouldn't get along or would just ignore each other. That has never been the case, though. Drew takes care of Davis and Davis worships Drew. They are quite the pair!

Davis is now officially and full-time wearing (now, imagine this in the most southern drawl possible) "big boy undapaaaaants"! Woo Hoo!

Davis is obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine. He even hums the tune as he plays. My child is his own walking soundtrack.

Davis says the best prayers at night. We have a nightly routine where we tuck Drew into bed first (just a ploy to get Davis into bed without a fuss), we say our prayers together and then Kevin and I tuck Davis in. Lately, Davis has been interrupting whoever is praying and finishes the prayer for them. He has his own agenda he needs to speak with God about, I think.

Here's Davis' prayer from last night:

Me: Praying and thanking God for blessings, especially for Davis on his birthday....
Davis: (interrupting)...and thank you, God, for Drewy and Davis and Mommy and Daddy and Hayden and Melissa and Walter and sweet tea. Amen.

I think he might have a future in the ministry! Most nights, it's all we can do not to burst out laughing!

Davis' first birthday

Davis is truly a blessing to us and, it's so much fun to watch him grow!

Happy Birthday, baby boy!
