Linden Turns 3!

3 Nov


On Wednesday, my sweet Linden turned 3! I can’t believe it has already been 3 years since I became a mother to this wild boy. He is the joy of my heart. I am surprised by him daily. He is the smartest, sweetest, silliest, most funny kid I have ever met. He is also the most independent, strong willed and opinionated person I know, besides myself!

I asked Linden a few of his favorite things:

Favorite color: “red”

Favorite animal: “ummm giraffe!” (it changes daily)

Favorite food: “peeeettzzuhh” *pizza (said in a deep, slight zombie voice?)

Favorite story: “Golahf” (David and Goliath)

Favorite number: “3!” yesterday it was “fixteen!”

Favorite toy: “Thomas” ( the train )

Favorite place: “Parties! Parties are places!”

Favorite shape: “hexgons” (hexagon)

We also saw his Dr. today and got his 3 year stats. These numbers are a far cry from our teeny baby boy who dangled around the 1st-5th percentile for the first 4 months of his life!

Height: 37.21 inches (44%)

Weight: 35 lbs (81%)


Last weekend we had a pirate themed costume birthday party. Linden dressed like Jake from the Neverland Pirates and Lilah was the cutest baby pirate you ever did see. Steven made a cute wooden plank for the kids to walk. We also had a cannon ball toss game and pin the eye patch on the pirate. Our house is so small that is was a bit of a nut house. Especially since we armed 10 toddlers with gigantic blow up swords!

Here are some pictures of his pirate party last weekend.

    He is growing so fast. It was a blessing for dad and I to come up for his birthday.

      Thank you for doing that! We appreciate the sacrifice so much. Linden and Lilah enjoyed it beyond all else!
