he's 3!

3 years ago today, i woke up in the wee hours of the morning because my water broke. after i convinced chase that it was for real, he got up, drank coffee, and made himself some breakfast. i paced as i waited on my ride to the hospital to finish his breakfast, but we made it there. and, shortly after lunch william joined our family.

today, instead of nervously hurrying along somebody's breakfast, i gladly handed over a birthday cake with bright orange icing. then, i sat back and relaxed while william dug in.

then, he opened a present and was thrilled to find a fireman sleeping bag.

he climbed right floor and all! and, soon afterwards he requested to watch diego while lounging in his underwear in his new sleeping bag. typical man, but who am i turn down such a request on his birthday?!

it's been a great 3 years, william. we can't imagine where we'd be today without you....a little less frazzled and well-rested, i'm sure....but, we wouldn't trade it for anything in the world! can't wait to see what you have in store for us in the future! happy 3rd birthday, bud!
