Henry's actual birthday

He really is three today. :)

And, just as I predicted, he was a grump, and I'm glad we celebrated yesterday.

But, here is a timeline just for you:

We decided to have a baby and it took zero time to actually get pregnant which was SHOCKING.


Henry was born at 7:55am at 9lbs 5oz. He was big and squishy and we were smitten.

Look at how tired we were! We had been up since 7:00 on November 8th and that picture was taken 36 hours later. I was SO high on hormones and adrenaline, I didn't sleep for three days, until I got home from the hospital.

His tongue stuck out all the time.

Henry walked very young, he was 8 months old. He hated being a baby.

Henry has always loved bike riding

Spencer was born when Henry was 20 months old and he LOVED his baby:

Henry somehow found out his birthday was ALSO today, so he requested that we redo the whole candle-blowing-out-wish-making, so we did.

I'm so thankful he's ours. I don't want to ever imagine my life without our Henry.

Looks like a fabulous birthday! I love the tongue thing when he was a baby. Too cute!

My oldest also walked very young. She was 7 1/2 months. Isn't it weird to see a baby that young walking around?

Happy birthday Henry! What a fun trip down memory lane. Sigh. I remember those days.

And I must say, you are a very smart mommy for celebrating his birthday on a Saturday instead of Sunday. Very, very, very smart. And as you know, I say that from the personal experience of being not so smart....

Alright, you managed to get a tear or two with this one. I'm so grateful to have you Hageys in my heart.
Here's to many, many more! :D

Alyson- Yeah, people would ask me "How many months until he goes to nursery?" and I would just laugh and say, "Oh, 9 months..." sigh.

Maren- I want to see YOUR pics from YOUR three-year old! And I definitely used your shining example when deciding to celebrate on Saturday. :)

Chelsea- We considered painting the pipes Willy Wonka colors but decided not to, since they put them in their mouths so much!

Happy Birthday Henry :) What cute pictures, I ♥ them! Thanks for sharing :) Hugs!

Such cute pictures! :-) I also loved the pipes as a child (in fact, I think they are 'mine', now that I think about it). Do you remember dad giving us string to tie in knots? Also a good activity for small people-I remember doing that for hours (especially during church)...maybe it was just me though; I am easily entertained.

It was fun to see your comment on our blog. I hear congratulations are in order...3 little boys, you rock! Take care and enjoy the warm weather. I'll keep checking in, if you don't mind.
