Three Years Old

Three years ago you changed my life completely, irrevocably, in the most profound way possible.

Three years ago I grew up. I stopped worrying so much about myself, my needs, my comfort and focused my energy on you, the most beautiful baby I had ever seen.

Three years ago I became your mama. The craziest, hardest, easiest, most fulfilling, most sleep deprived, most hilarious, grossest, funniest, exhausting, enlightening, growth filled job I'd ever had.

Happy Birthday baby. It is an honor and privilege to be your mama, to watch you grow, to observe you discover your world, to kiss your sweet curls away from your forehead at night, to dry your tears, and share in fits of hysterical giggles.

You fill my heart to overflowing each and every day.

Here are few photos from our day, which was spent at the Portland Zoo and his Great Aunt Debbie's and Great Grandma Alice's house. More photos will be up later.

His Indiana Jones cake:

Wearing his stunning birthday crown and his mama's sunglasses.

His birthday spiral

It was a beautiful, lovely, perfect day for our 3 year old to celebrate his birthday.

Blessings and Light,
Simple Mama
