Billy Idol

My little boy is 3 years old tomorrow.  Where does the time go?  I can still remember when they dunked him over the curtain for me to see him and I thought, "Hey!  That looks like Billy Idol".  He was a Star in my eyes from that moment and he brings so much joy into our home.

And...to think he was a surprise!  What a wonderful gift!  Heavenly Father knew we needed this little boy in our home.

He is  funny, sweet, kind generous, silly, onery, adorable, precious and so, so loved.

He makes up words by adding "ing".  To him it makes it a much better word for what he is experiencing or wants to do.

My favorite right now is "Bathtubbing".   He will come running in and say he wants to go bathtubbing.  Makes it sound like so much fun.

His birthday supper will consist of pizza at his favorite place on earth.  Chuck E. Cheese.   We took him and his sister last night to Disney on Ice.  On our way back to the car, riding on his Daddy's shoulders, he announced:  "I had a great time!".  His favorite part was Lilo and Stitch, which is funny because he has never seen that movie.

This morning I got to sleep in and when I came down to the kitchen he asked me if I had a good sleep.  What a thoughtful little boy.  So grateful to have him.
Besides, with a talent like this, how could we ever survive without him?

We love you Dude!

I can't beleive it has been three years. I am so glad I was able to come and be there when you had him. I remember holding and rocking him. Can't do that now. Wish we were closer but glad you share. Give him a birthday kiss from Grandma Enid
