My son is now 3. we have had 3 wonderful years of parenting. we have had 3 joyful years of watching him grow. it is my absolute dream to be a mother and i am so blessed to be having this life.
He is crazy over cars. you name it, he's got them all from mini to lamborghini (the small metal ones, of course) and he even sleeps with them, all lined up next to him! i couldnt help myself but to make a car card for him, but no, i'm afraid its no ferrari!
Did this little tag book for him to mark his 3rd. it spells his name and a little something to describe him today.
A - adorable
everything about him is adorable from our eyes.
he cleans, helps, doing almost everything on his own now!
D - delightful
there's always something new about him every single day! he is a delight to discover!
A - asks and asks!
oh yes! now's the stage where he showers us with all his amusement and curiosity. i love the way he asks. the tone of his voice is just so pure..
N - nice and neat!
he respects our "nos and not yets". he says his "pleases and thank yous" and he's neat when it comes to his stuff.
He had more than a party. he had 3 parties! and he kept saying "ik ben jarig! aidan is jarig" for almost a week after that! (its my birthday!). we didnt take down the banners and ballons for a more than a week! we had loads of fun now that he's able to understand what a birthday involves - cake, candles, presents, cards and lots of toys!
Here's what i did for his teachers at school. a decorated birdcage filled with tea and chocolates. we drink lots of tea here in holland! and i manage to find a matching flavour for each cage! lemon for yellow, passion fruit for purple, apple for green and blueberry for blue!
And as for his friends at school...
Goody bags filled with snoepjes and some party toys. 3 stars and a note saying "Hoera! Aidan 3 jaar".
An animal themed notebook with crayons, kids scissors, ruler, glitters and stickers for all his friends at school.
A party wouldnt be complete without them! baked some chocolate chip muffins.

From the look of his face, i'm glad he enoyed his parties (and also he gets to blow the candles, plenty of times!)
Happy 3rd Birthday Aidan. I just cannot tell you how proud and honoured i am to be your mother, and how proud i am of you. believe in your dreams and reach for your goals. nothing is impossible, you can be anything. i wish only the best and all the good things for you. i adore and love you with all my heart and might.
Thank you to you guys who remembered, who texed and thank you for the cards and presents. we love you guys!
