Nicholas had a fantastic 3rd birthday – it was a Sportball party. We had tons of kids running around in the back yard, perfect weather, and Patrick made an amazing cake, decorated like a soccer pitch.
For all the issues we’ve had with the house, the back yard has been everything and more than I hoped for. Watching the kids run through the blueberry patch, filling their faces with fresh fruit, and then play hide-and-seek around the grapevines is such a treat. We’ll have to figure out how to care for all the plants and trees, but I know we’re going to appreciate the time and effort as we eat all the fruit!
As of his birthday, he is 38 inches tall and weighs 37.5 lbs. Just a week before his birthday we moved him into his new “big boy” bed and he has adapted to it very well.
