The Big 03
Hard to believe it, but this kid won't stop growing and has decided it's ok to turn 3.
For the first time I am actually slightly
happy that Miles is getting slightly
older, the two's have been a bit of a challenge for us and I am hoping that we will get things more under control this year. Luckily I still think he's the cutest thing ever, so I can never stay frustrated for too long. I suppose they make the crazy ones cute for a reason. :)
He pretty much loved his birthday, but then again who doesn't love a day all about them?
Miles of course got spoiled. And can I say his new Bucky Pirate Ship
is pretty much the coolest toy ever. He even turned down playing on the ipad to keep playing with Bucky, that has never happened before.
Here's some info about Miles at 3, according to Miles:
favorite color: Blue
favorite Show: Diego
favorite movie- Ice Age
favorite Song: Wheels on the Bus
What do you want to be when you grow up: (yelling and throwing toys) "I'm a big kid, I not grow up!"
Best Friend: Tajen
favorite Book:T-Rex ones
favorite thing to Do: play with Bucky and Mace
favorite toy: Bucky and raffy
favorite Snack: cereal
3 words I would use to describe Miles: opinionated, fun, and curious
My current favorite things about Miles: How he still lets me hug and kiss him all day long, how he says "hmmmmm" when you ask him a question, and his laugh.
He is really starting to talk now (and I can understand most of it) and I am loving getting a better picture of how he views the world and his opinions on things.
We sure do love our crazy Miles and he always makes life exciting.
We had Miles' 3rd birthday party this weekend. I wanted to do a Jake and the Neverland Pirates party or perhaps Toy Story, but MIles has always been a child that knows exactly what he wants, so T-Rex
He wanted to invite ALL of macey's friends. We ended up settling on 2 of Macey's friends (who are his friends too)
and then 2 friends his age. But, can I just say Macey and I are lucky we got to attend, there was a few days there where he said that no girls were allowed. I was getting worried.
As Miles is very particular on what he wants, I made sure to run all my ideas through him. I showed him some dinosaur hats and feet I wanted to make. His response, "no Dinosaur feet, T-Rex feet! No dinosaur hats, T-Rex hats!"
I learned pretty quickly this was going to strictly be a T-Rex party, no other dinosaurs allowed. Here is Tajen modeling the hats and T-Rex feet, since my children were uncooperative in this area.
I used this party
as my inspiration and of course changed everything from "dinosaur" to "T-Rex" to please the birthday boy. And Paul used his awesome skills to make me this invitation:
Miles knew exactly what he wanted for his cake: it had to be from target, be chocolate and of course have a t-rex on top. Luckily Target never disappoints.
Some of the decor:
Like Macey's 3rd birthday
we had a coloring table, but this time Miles and I also searched through all our books for the dinosaur ones and this proved to be the most popular activity.
The games consisted of a T-Rex egg hunt
, where the eggs were filled with candy and baby dinosaurs.
A pull string piñata
. This almost didn't happen, as all we could find was a triceratops, which of course wasn't going to work. Luckily Miles did not realize that the one he picked was actually a dragon. :)
and the older kids did an egg race
while Miles and his friend ate all their candy.
He loved being the center of attention and his favorite present, a box of lucky charms, of course. His friends know him all too well.
Miles even gave me a hug part way through the party and said, "Thanks for my T-Rex Party Mama!" That is exactly why I love
Now it's only a few months until I get to do a party for this girl!
Crew's highlights for this last month include:
-graduating to riding forward in the baby bjorn
- the discovery of his new favorite pastime, hand chewing.
My favorite thing about this last month though, is how incredibly chunky he has gotten! I just can't resist this chubby baby.
Macey is Three!
I cannot believe it but Macey is 3
today! She informed me this morning that she is now a big girl, which I have to admit she is.
Here are some of Macey's current Favorite Things:Color:
"The Woohoo Song" AKA The Sweet Escape
by Gwen Stepani and Superman
Dance, read, and perform tricks3 Words to Describe Macey:
Energetic, Dramatic, and Cute
Macey showing me how old she is, while enjoying her birthday donut.
When I asked Macey what she wanted to do today, she said, "dance to mom songs with Raf and Mom."
I got reprimanded for sitting down when I should of been dancing.
Macey keeps us constantly on our toes and can always make us laugh. We love our Macey and are so lucky to have her in our family!! This weekend is the much anticipated Dora Party! I won't be doing as much for it as I planned (my excuse can be found in the previous post), but I don't think Macey will mind. Pictures to come soon.
