Happy 3rd Birthday, Simon!!!


Happy birthday, sweet boy!!!

Happy birthday, sweet boy!!!

Yesterday, my baby turned 3. He’s getting to be such a big boy! His vocabulary continues to grow, and, as hard as it is to believe, so does his stubbornness. He still is not much a fan of mornings. He adores his big brother. Loves chicken, soup, crackers, beans of all kinds, sweet treats, and is overall a fairly good eater. He is completely potty trained. He’s a great napper, but still sometimes struggles with sleeping well at night. He sometimes has crying fits around midnight or 5 am. Sometimes he yells, “Eze, NO!!!” in his sleep. That always makes me giggle a little, when I’m not completely exhausted from those middle of the night wake up calls.

He is in a phase where he is really asserting his will. For example, last night I was sitting with him eating supper at Bible study. My younger sister came over and asked, “Simon, can I sit by you?” He scowled at her and said, “No! I sit by my mommy. MY MOMMY”.  She laughed and said, “Well you keep sitting by your mommy. I’m still going to sit next to you on the other side”. He’s pretty sure he’s in charge most of the time, and really likes to try to boss the rest of us around.

My favorite words he says these days:

Hole-de-sac = we live in a cul-de-sac

Hice keem cone = ice cream cone

High pad = iPad

He’s very deliberate with his speech, and enunciates his words well. Its been so much fun watching him grow this past year. We think of his birthmom, and his foster mom who he calls HaMaeNah, knowing they are thinking of him. We hope they know how much we love him. We are very blessed!!
