Happy Big 3, Trippy!!

3 years ago today our precious Trip entered the world......with those big brown eyes. Here he is just before we left the hospital......
.....and at 2 weeks
.....at 3 1/2 months with Ruby who was barely 2
........ at 18 months
.......and March 30, 2009 on his 2nd birthday. When I went through these pics I realized just how much his look has quickly changed through the years. It seems like he's had that shaggy blonde do forever! And if I didn't birth him myself I would never know that the baby pics above were indeed Mr. Trip.
Today to celebrate the day we met Daddy for lunch at Chik-fil-A (Ruby's class painted on bunny faces today.)
and then went to see the new Dragon flick (fyi, not preschool age appropriate- very dark with ferocious dragons. R liked it but too scary for T.) After the movie we couldn't resist soaking in the nice weather so we hit the park.
Then it was home for dinner followed by birthday cake, very poorly made by me around midnight last night. I found some gel icings that had been in the pantry too long which separated and ran all over the cake. He was still excited to see it and it tasted yummy.
Happy Birthday, sweet Trippers! We can't imagine our life without you and your big smile, sweet hugs, and great insights that always put a smile on our face. I can't believe you're 3 years old and officially no longer a baby. You're such a joyful, handsome little man. We love you!...... Btw, Trip was not happy at all this morning to hear that he was now 3 and no longer 2. With his reaction you'd think he was turning 40! He says that he doesn't want to be big and wants to stay little forever. And, I must say that I'm perfectly happy for him to do so..... well, as long as we can work the use of a potty in at some point. Ironically, he also said today that he wants to be a dinosaur when he grows up. What a dreamer!
