Micah Turns 3!

Our Micah turned three on April 17th. When he was a baby I used to think, "he was lit from within" because he was so happy and smiley. Thankfully he is still like that, give or take a few...episodes a day. :) We adore this boy.

Birthday attire from the Roberts' family. He loves Georgia Bulldogs, "because they are red."
Off to the fire station for a birthday tour.

He was able to sit in, explore and drive every vehicle that was there. Pretty cool.

Lt. Todd was a fantastic tour guide.
This birthday trip provided grins from ear to ear the entire time. It was so great to see him this happy and loving every minute. Here's to a wonderful 3rd year.


These two taking a break from the marathon bike session yesterday. Boy do I love these cuties. Micah was napping - I love him too. :)

Two Wheels

On Sunday Noah announced that he wanted to take his training wheels off. After a few runs with Shawn he was riding his bike. Amazing. Then he fell and his handle bar went into his chest and it wasn't pretty. Twenty minutes later he was asking to go back out and ride though. I was impressed, but he was nervous. Today we went out again and he just started riding. Now he is an old pro. He biked for hours. So happy and full of smiles.
This picture and the moment itself really had me thinking about how quickly he is growing up.

Pickup Games

A post dinner game of football for dad and the kiddos.
Grandma Jane got some playing time in while she was here too. Noah was the referee.

Asking once

I've been reading a book about the development of 5 year olds. One of the common characteristics is the desire to please his mother. Tonight Noah fit this to a T. I asked if he and Micah could go up and get their jammies on. I went upstairs a few minutes later and sure enough they had done it. Truly a miracle as most nights I don't dare to count the number of times we have to tell them to get upstairs alone. Anyhow, I made a HUGE deal out of it and while giving Noah a hug he said, "Mom, I saw you had tears of joy." Ha! Not really but on some nights that would have brought them. Let's make it two nights in a row. :)

Early birthday celebration

Jane and Dennis came to visit this weekend to celebrate Micah's 3rd birthday and Easter. He officially turns 3 on April 17th but we are happy to spread out the fun. He chose a spiderman cake and I'm not sure who sang Happy Birthday louder, us or him. He sure does love attention.There will be no Easter pictures to come. Taking these took it out of all of us. Ha!
Micah had plenty of help when it came time to open presents.
The pirate costume is the current fave. That's Captain Hook folks.

Cozy love

This cozy coupe has caused a lot of strife for #2 and #3 lately. Both want it. To themselves. All the time.
Celia climbs up and forces her way in whether it is occupied or not.
Micah isn't a fan of two drivers.
He has found a way to feel better about sharing.
This is what happens when she doesn't get her way.
