I feel like this is my last birthday that he can still be called my "baby boy". I know, I know, that's stretching it because if you've seen him he's all boy and no baby...unless of course he's hurt or sick, then that pouty lip comes out and baby mode is kicked into high gear.
Jonas has 3 requests. Dinosaurs, candy and a bike. All 3 birthday wishes were fulfilled during his special day spent with the whole family.
Fun was had and a good talk was given about minding your manners and behaving when on a field trip to our girls. Holy cow, those field trip kids were so rude!
When asked what he wanted for lunch Jonas said "FRIES!". Easy enough. We opted for Five Guys Burgers and Fries. So good. So, so good.
Jonas claimed he found his new best friend. He called my name and told me to look. This is what I saw when I did (see picture above). Melt my heart and soul with cuteness why don't you Jonas?!
Jonas got to pick out a paint can and fill it with any candy he wanted. We could barely get the lid on of the can! The sour strawberry belts and cherries didn't last the ride home. He loves sour/tart candy...just like his mama.
When getting out of the car to walk around and check out the shops, Jonas informed me that he was a big boy and didn't want to ride in the stroller. He walked, holding my hand, while I inwardly mourned for the loss of my little baby who needed a stroller. At least he wants to hold my hand still...
We headed home for presents, cake and ice cream. Jonas wanted a blue dinosaur cake. When he saw the cake he had the biggest smile on his face and ran over proclaiming how "awesome cool" the cake was.
The girls got him a bubble gun he asked for from Disneyland. Yes, I am well aware that there are bubble guns at the local Wal Mart/Target, but he didn't want those. The girls knew he would only want the one from Disneyland. Yay for bubbles!!!
You guys should check out some of the youtube videos of little ones riding these things! Bret secretly hopes Jonas will want to compete in the BMX race that is held here in Southern California for little kids. We'll see...
He is such a great addition to our family. He definitely is a mama's boy and enjoys being my shadow throughout the day. He's a clown and loves to make people laugh. He loves music and popcorn. He is my little man and I love him so.
He's three...and ready to take on the world!
