Happy 3rd Birthday, Jayden!

in Kids


Like the wick on a burning candle, the years seem to wane before my eyes. Today, our little man turned three.


This morning, I made chocolate chip blueberry muffins and we gave him his new tricycle which he calls his “prize”.



We ran some errands which included picking up some special items for him like an aquarium kit and Betta, and some toys for outside. Here are some mobile photos from today.

I’m way too tired to edit and upload the rest of the photos from my camera, but I will later this week. We’re calling it an early night since Jayden fell out shortly after we got home. Oh, and that dinosaur birthday cake that I told you all about? Saving it for his party next week! Goodnight and thanks for the birthday wishes! ♥

    Happy birthday to your sweet little guy! I can’t believe our boys are 3–it’s frightening how fast it goes by! I’m glad that I get to watch Jay grow up a bit via your blog. And happy birth-day to you too Mama!
