Our baby is 3!

I think I am in complete denial... that might be the reason that I have waited almost a month to share with my blogger family that our baby boy turned 3 on the 4th of Jan.... wow I just can't believe it... there are times when he talks (talks back) that he thinks he is 16 but there are alot more times when I want to hold him like a baby and remember the times when he let me hold him like that... everyday that passes I am more proud of our little man... he amazes me every day, he makes me laugh everyday, there are even days that he makes me cry... he sure knows how to look at me with those big blue eyes to get anything that he wants... and every day I am more thankful to God for giving us this little miracle... and everyday I get a little taste of how much God truly must love each of us for we are His children...

Pierce,

Here are just a few things that I love about you at 3 (written by mama but daddy feels the same way)...

I love the way you wake up in the morning and yell "Mama I awake.... the sun is up... I awake", I love that you would rather go outside and chase a dog than watch TV, I love how when you get hurt you want me to comfort you and kiss your boo boo, I love how you are a creature of habit (you want your milk in the morning, you want to take a bath before bed, you want water when you go to sleep... always), I love that you love the 5 minute rule; you want to take 5 min. before you take a bath, before you eat, before you leave, before you go to bed (you love it and so do I), I love that you love to travel the world and see all your people, I love that I can put you in an environment with children (school, playground, Sunday school) and you make friends, I love that when you get to play with a friend they are the only thing you talk about for a week, I love that your meal of choice is Chicken Satay or Sushi, I love that when you mean to say I love you to someone you sometimes say LOVE LOVE, I love it when you do say the words "I Love You" you follow it with the person's name, I love it that you let me fix your hair but make me chase you around the house to do so, I love it that when you are talking to me and I don't respond you say "Mama you not talking to me", I love it when you do something naughty you look at me and say 'I am sorry, that's my fault", I love it when you see me after school and get so happy to come home, I love it when we ride the bus or taxi that you sit so close to me, I love it when we visit people that love you very much you still want your mama, I love it when you talk to your daddy on the phone and tell him that you miss him, I love it that you still say your 2 and a half after you know that you turned 3 but don't want to be 3 years old, I love it that you can't hold up 3 fingers yet that is why I think you still want to be 2, I love it that when someone ask you your name you say "Pierce Denton", I love it that your favorite color is pink but your favorite toy is transformers... but we have yet to find a pink transformer, I love it that you call every dog Grace, I love it that when you refer to home you are talking about Singapore, I love it that you are not so good with names and that both Grandma and Grandpa are called 'Grandpa' and ViVi is JuJu and JuJu is ViVi (so confusing), I love it that when I want you to do something and you won't if I make a face like I am sad you run to me and say "don't be sad mama" and then you do what ever I told you to do, love it that when you see little babies you ask me "do they have jesus", love it that when you blow out your candles on your cake you spit on them, love it that when you take a bath that everyone in the room gets wet, love it that when you accidentally poo in your underwear you look at me and say 'Sorry mama', I love it that when you do something wrong you say the same thing "Sorry Mama", I love it that you get so happy to go see the doctors and dentist, I love it that you understand what tomorrow means, I love it that you think you will always get a treat or present for doing something good (this is a very bad habit but I do love it), I love it that you can watch movies and play games for 25 hours on an airplane, I love it that you still sleep in a crib at 3 years of age, I love it that when we read books you have to read it (not me), I love it that when you sing 'Jesus loves me' or 'ABC' songs you sing a cute kid's voice, I love it that you were potty trained at 2.5, I love it that you want to be around older kids and when you are you look up to them, I love it that we can still call you by your nickname "PD Bird" and you have no idea that soon you will not like that name, I love it that you like school, I love it that you love to listen to music and sing and dance...
What can I say WE just love you... with everything we are and so proud of you and can't wait to see what 3 brings us... so far so good our sweet handsome PD Bird.

Every birthday you are always wearing a hat of some kind...

Here you are on your 3rd birthday in Texas while having dinner at Lupe's with Brooklyn... this year your birthday party will be in Singapore and you will be wearing a construction worker hat (party to come).

Last year at 2 you were an airplane pilot...
For your 1st birthday you were a Prince all decked out in blue and letting everyone know you were one.
And of course at birth you had to have a bonnet...

We love you more and more each day, but it seems like tomorrow there is no way we could love you even more... but we know we will. Happy 3rd Birthday buddy!

You are a sweet mama! I'm sure he would fill pages with "I love it when...." about you if he could. Have a safe trip back. Miss you guys already!

Shelly said...

Okay, I just re-read your blog (skimmed it the first time) and I just wanted to tell you that I love it that YOU cherish every moment with him. Good moms cherish the good times, but GREAT moms cherish every moment. You are a GREAT mom. Have a safe trip!

This was so, so sweet, Camille. As much as I dread (kind of) my little guy growing up and turning 3 years old, this makes it not so much to dread! Thank you for sharing all these precious moments with us. Love you!
