Yesterday was Luke's 3rd birthday. He's still as crazy as ever, but he's gotten a little more polite about it (if he's well rested). We weren't able to celebrate it until about 8 at night b/c Matt had to work a little late and then we had to take care of something at church. So, by the time we got home it was past the kids' bedtime (Maya has to be up at 6:30 ish to get ready for school and to the bus by 7).
Luke fell asleep on the car ride home. The party is ready to go, but he's not.
He's slowly waking up in Matt's arms as we sing him happy birthday.
(Decorating that cake drove me nuts - not that I was trying anything fancy, but the bag of icing I was writing with kept popping open and spilling icing all over the cake - you can only scrape icing off of portions of the cake so many times)
It took us a little while to convince him to blow out the candles, but he finally came around.
After Luke played with spiderman stickers instead of eating his cake and ice cream he got to open his present. The beauty of a 3-year-old mind - you can take him to the store the day before and have him pick out his own present. We left it in the car, he forgot about it until he opened it the next day. Easy to surpise.
I know I'm always saying how crazy he is, but in reality he is such a sweet boy who loves his family and loves to give his mommy kisses (which I love!). I'm sure he ("super spiderman" as he calls himself) will continue to protect us all from the monsters and make us laugh and smile everyday. Happy Birthday, Luke!
