Matthew turned three today. He woke up to the sounds of his dad’s and my voices singing, “happy birthday,” to him; then heard Zoom sing his birthday song from outer space for the first time to him; ate cake for breakfast; went to summer camp (where they made a special birthday crown for him that he wore all morning!); had lunch at his favorite restaurant (chipotle) where his dad met us; took a nap snuggled up to his mom; went to speech therapy which he enjoys a lot; played soccer with his coaches and friends; had his first-ever ice pop; had dinner at “the chicken house” (Panera); opened his presents (a scooter and a remote plane), helped put together his gifts; played; bathed; and went to bed exhausted. I think it’s fair to say it was a fun birthday!
Matthew, you are the light of my life! Your snuggles melt my heart like nothing else on this planet and your smile can change the course of any day for the better. You are my first gift – the one that softened all of the pain leading up to finally getting you. I love you more than you know, and I already worry about the day that you replace me with a new woman of your dreams. 😉 I love you, I love you, I love you! Happy birthday, sweet boy!

Aw, such a sweet post! Sounds like a perfect birthday… and don’t worry too much about him replacing you with another woman; these days, boys tend to stay pretty tight with their mommas, even when they’re grown up. Just keep reading “Love You Forever” to him and then he’ll never leave your side. 🙂

Holy crap, does the tune go something like this…My name is Zoom and I live on the moon, and I came down to earth just to sing you this tune, singing Matthew, it’s your birthday, today! If so, I had that cassette tape with my name growing up and I can’t BELIEVE I remembered that jingle just now, haha! I can hear it like it was yesterday.
Anyway, happy birthday big three year old!! I’m glad you had such a special day!
