Tyler is 3 years old today!
We had his party yesterday, so we actually pretended it was his birthday yesterday. I think we did that for Ethan’s 4th birthday as well. So much easier than trying to explain why the party is on a different day! :-)
Part of our present to Tyler was a little IgglePiggle doll. I know, I know … if we hate the show that much why are we encouraging him? I can’t really answer that! I saw the toy and just HAD to get it for him, I knew he would love it! And he did, as you can see from this photo.
We had Tyler’s party yesterday afternoon at Mum & Dad’s place. Fortunately the weather held out long enough for Rob to do a Treasure Hunt with the kids. Here’s the treasure they found at the end.
Tyler wanted a Zebra cake this year. But as the chief cake baker, I wasn’t too keen on that idea. So I convinced him to have a Zoo cake instead, which he loved. Here it is:
He was SO excited when everybody was singing “Happy Birthday” – he was licking his lips the whole time, waiting for his “moment”. And when it arrived, he blew out his 3 candles in one go. :-) Can you believe he didn’t eat ANY cake? I love this photo though, it’s so classic!
I can’t quite believe that my “bubby” is 3 years old. It’s strange, because in so many ways he seems older than that. He prefers to play with older children, he’s really tall for his age, and he talks as well as a 4-year-old. But his lack of progress in the toilet training department is a pretty constant reminder that he actually IS his age! LOL ;-)
Happy Birthday, Ty. You’re a constant source of joy and delight in my life, and I love you to bits!! xox
