How is it possible that our (first) baby boy is THREE!? With everything going on with "baby brother," we were so excited to make this day all about celebrating Judah. This is the first birthday that he is really excited about...he is SO looking forward to having a "birthday party with a cake." We've been talking about it for many weeks now. He's also been talking about building sandcastles at the ocean for months, so that was on the agenda for today...after finding a big present from mama and daddy at home this morning:

These days Judah could spend hours playing with his cars and trucks. He especially loves his Disney Cars cars. He LOVES watching movies (especially Cars, Madagascar, Toy Story, and Despicable Me) and episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Thomas the Train. We held off on screentime for as long as we could, and now that we've started, it's a hard thing to keep in check! Thankfully during the summer there are much more exciting things to do outside which makes it a little easier. He has thoroughly enjoyed our trips to the pool and fountains and we hope once things settle down with Ezra we will have more opportunities for water fun again :)

While this is a challenging time with lots of an emotional outbursts and fits, it's equally as wonderful as Judah is constantly lifting our spirits with the precious and often hilarious things he says. We need to start writing them all down again to add to our list of Judah-isms (stay tuned) :)
