My oldest boy getting older

My Landon Everett turned Three years old today at 1:21pm.

He woke up this morning and crawled into bed by me and I told him "Happy Birthday my sweet boy!" to which he replied "Happy Birthday to you!" Love it! How sweet of him to think of me on his birthday...well, I guess to him it was like Merry Christmas, you just say it back, so he did to everyone who saw him or called him. By the end of the day he caught on and started saying Thank you instead.

We met up with friends at Chuck E. Cheese to play...this was the first time he went anywhere near the big mouse, and actually gave him a high five. All times before he would scream in fear but not today, not on the day that he said goodbye to all of his two years and went forward to the year of 3. Then we went home for a nap. After dinner Landon opened a couple of presents from Mommy and Daddy and then we went out for ice cream. He usually chooses a pretty color like cotton candy or sherbet, but at three years old he was ready to move on to Gold Medal Ribbon :)

Landon is a very sweet person. If you have seen him being ugly it was a day that he was really tired and didn't get a nap.

He will say thank you for everything.

He likes to share everything he has, and makes friends with everyone.

He is wild and crazy.

Loves music and dancing

Was potty trained this past Summer

Can spell his first name

Can sing all of the words to Jesus Loves Me, ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, You are my All in All

Loves Toby Mac and went to his first concert this year

He has to kiss his brother goodnight every night but could care less about him during the day.

Shows he likes are Wow Wow Wubzy, Sponge Bob Square Pants and Batman

He has a GREAT imagination and comes up with the best stories and elaborates all of the time.

He can count up to 17

He drew his first monster a couple of weeks ago, circle with sticks for arms and legs and smaller circles for eyes

Loves using a glue stick and scissors

He speaks very well for his age using words like actually (three months ago this was abbalooby), and frustrated (without the r) to name a couple. He comes home from Moms Day Out asking why none of his friends spoke to him (I feel so bad when I hear that, but it is only because they haven't started really talking just yet his teachers say) We are always working on correcting his speech...he would say "It's told today" instead of cold, and when I corrected him, he told me that those words rhyme, I was quite proud :)

Wears a size 4T tops and bottoms and a size 11 shoe
