T H R E E !

Today was a long time waiting for our Hansie boy. He has been talking about his birthday and turning three for many months now! His birthday wishes kept changing leading up to the big day, from wanting a dinosaur party at the dinosaur museum, to wanting a Pokemon party at the tumble gym, to wanting a Spiderman party at home... and when we thought we had settled on an idea, his last minute request was a rainbow party! Not to be confused with simply rainbow colors... he wanted actual rainbows! Haha! And when you are turning three in our household you pretty much get whatever kind of party you want because turning three is one of the best ages ever when it comes to birthdays, so rainbow party he had!

The excitement on the morning of his birthday could hardly be contained!


Jayne and I created this balloon rainbow the night before, and sadly the inner balloons that were blown up smaller started looking pretty pathetic the next morning, haha. Hans still thought it was the best so I'll take that as a win!

If anyone in our family has the best facial expressions, it's Hans

That smile... haha, I hope it never changes!

Today was also a very big day for Hans because it was also his FIRST DAY OF PRESCHOOL! He has probably been looking forward to this moment with more anticipation than his actual birthday. Going to the same school as his big brother Frankie has become a dream come true. I wish all of you could have experienced the joy that emanated from this kid all day!!! 

He wanted me to take some pics of his tricks...

like running!

And showing me how he can do "three" with his fingers!

and of course, a thumbs up!

Frankie came out and asked if he could take some pictures with him too which was really sweet and of course I obliged!

I said "Ok now look at each other!" 

And then I jokingly said, "and now kiss!" thinking they would say no! and laugh... but what do you know, they both went in for it!! haha

The best was their silly reaction after, yelling "gross!" as they wiped their mouths as if they'd kissed..... their brother on the lips? 

Oh gosh, I love them so much

After preschool, I took Hans and Frankie and their cousin Emory to the tumble gym to play for an hour, and then back to our house to meet up with big siblings and more family for rainbow donuts, singing, and opening gifts!

At three years old: 

- speaks in the sweetest, high pitched voice and also likes to talk REALLY LOUD!
- is getting super independent and loves doing things by himself like getting dressed, putting his shoes on, brushing his teeth, or getting his own food
- loves to sing and i'll often find him humming some tune around the house
- admires his big brothers so much 
- is really sweet with Rose but definitely owning his big brother role in a not so fun way too (likes to tease her and when he gets caught he'll instantly say, "I said sorry!" as if that makes it all okay) 
- When he doesn't get his way he'll ever so sweetly ask, "how about tomorrow then can I?" or "next time can we?" or something along those lines and it's seriously killer. 
- loves cars, pokemon, the sharer brothers (loves to say "share the love" and show me his love sign with his hand, or sing their new song)
- loves to ride his bike outside
- loves to play soccer 
- is just an all around good and easy kid. for the most part really good mannered and easy going. so fun to be around. 
- super snuggler and gives the best loves. 
- loves to give the prayer and loves to always be included in everything 
- goes to bed without a single fuss (he could teach his big sibs a thing or two)
- loves mac n cheese (it was his bday dinner request), yogurt, cereal.. he'll eat most foods

I'm sure I will come back and add more to this list as they come to mind, but I'll just end it by saying that this kid really is the best. Everybody loves Hans and I'm just the luckiest to get to be his mom.

Happy Birthday Hansie!!!!
