My sweet boy, Cade Marion. At three years old, you are a whirlwind of excitement and spontaneity and curiosity and LIFE! There's a song I like about living out loud. One part says, Come on, crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout. This is life we've been given, made to be lived out, so... live out loud. I feel like this describes your approach to life perfectly! You want to jump high and run fast and play hard and laugh loud. You have a big heart and big emotions and BIG FUN!
You ask lots of questions and constantly want to know Why? or Why not? You are loving and charming and know that by squeezing my neck, saying, Peez, Mommy, peez, I can hardly say no to you. You are independent and fearless and want to do things for yourself, even if that means climbing to the top shelf of the pantry to get your own cereal- not that I would ever (knowingly) let you do that!
At three years old, you weigh 30 lbs and are 38 inches tall. You are a slim, little thing and Mommy has a hard time finding pants that stay up on you! You are excited about becoming a big boy and do a good job eating your fruits and veggies and drinking your muscle milk. If you eat a lot for dinner, you want me to check afterwards and see if you've grown. You're hoping to be reaaaalllly tall like Daddy one day. You like fire engines and tractors and really wish you could take a ride on that big garbage truck that comes by our house each week. =)
You are Daddy's buddy and Mommy's little boy. You love to cuddle on my lap in the mornings and sometimes get a little jealous and tell me to put Harper down! You enjoy having Mommy to yourself while Ella's at school and Harper's napping. You like to spend this time playing bat and ball, cars, or reading. Seek and find books are your favorite. You know your colors, numbers, and 22 upper case letters, but have a hard time with shapes.
You are a typical little boy who enjoys tormenting his big sister. When you know Ella is going to give you what for, you just grin and cackle and take off running. You like to gross her out and make her laugh by talking about your bodily functions. And for all the grief you give each other, Ella is your constant companion and co-conspirator. The two of you go on many great adventures every day. You have a soft spot for your baby sisser and treat her like your little teddy bear. You are forever telling me, Aww, Harper's 'dorable and she's the lucky recipient of gobs of little boy kisses and squeezes every day.
