Samuel was sick so we were not able to attend Mass or family events. It was not the best Easter for sure but we made do and had a special meal and egg hunt at home. Looking forward to the winter sicknesses ending!!!!
You were so very excited for your birthday and your birthday cake. We have been counting down the days since the beginning of Lent. At 3 you are still a happy lovable guy. You love trucks and puzzles and your current obsession is sticker books. You are also a big fan of the sand box in the driveway. You sleep great at night and still take a nap that is 1-2hours. You are obsessed with your thumb and blanket still and since you are only allowed to have your blanket in bed you often sneak up to your bed and hang out with your blanket for a while. If I let you bring your blanket downstairs you just sit around and hug your blanket and suck your thumb. You hear your siblings constantly beg for "tv time" and you ask me when you do you get tv time? If I let you you would watch episode after episode of Mighty Machines which was also Israel's favorite show when he was 2 and 3 years old. You hang out with Israel a little too much so you have an extensive vocabulary of "potty talk" and you think its hilarious to use words like " Cut the cheese and toot and boogy head" For your birthday you wanted a chocolate digger cake with chocolate frosting. And for dinner you wanted spaghetti and meatballs. Speaking of food, your favorites are yogurt, eggs and sausage and "something from the pantry" which translates to toddler junk food like graham crackers and goldfish. You loathe chicken which is unfortunate since we eat it like 4 nights a week. You have been potty trained for a month now and you are doing great! Your nick name of Sam-ohh is still being used on a daily basis.
Another one of daddies awesome cake creations. The "dirt" is chocolate teddy grahams
Back when we just had Keira and she potty trained we made her a cake to celebrate her ditching the diapers and becoming a big girl. Samuel has seen this photo in the photo album and told me multiple times that he wanted his own potty trained cake. We promised him one as soon as he was using the potty all the time and wearing undies and keeping them dry/ clean etc. He finally did it. So thankful to have him out of diapers!!! It took lots of bribery, fruit snacks and trucks and one cake complete with a toilet ( borrowed from Nairi's doll house).
