Happy Birthday, to my Baby Boy!

I promised I'd dedicate a post to each boy on their big day, SOOO......

Our sweet and funny little boy is 3!!  I can't believe my baby is 3 today!!  Seems like just yesterday that he was a newborn screeching with his distinct, high pitch cat cry!  It was so unique that people commented on it all the time.  The nurses in the hosptial said they'd never heard a cry quite like his and one time a lady in the grocery store stopped me and told me she thought somebody had a cat in the store with them.  Well, he's lost the unique cry, but he has developed a unique personality that we LOVE!  He is our little comedian(guess every family needs one..;).  He makes us laugh on a daily basis with the way he tries to keep up with the boys and the things he says and does.  I swear  the boy grew up overnight!  One day he just woke up and decided to start talking in complete sentences and quit wearing a diaper.  I know it's because he wants to be like his brothers, but it's crazy how he did it so quick!He's a little daredevil!  Will go to the most dangerous and highest part of any park immediately.  His teachers tell me that he gets them so nervous, that they have to close their eyes sometimes, and my mom won't even take him to the park because she gets so nervous.  He is super coordinated....he can bounce a basketball and catch it, make shots, and he can hit a ball of a tee and sometimes even when it's thrown to him!  He has such a sweet tooth(apple doesn't fall far!). He is super sensitive to others feelings.  If somebody is crying, he'll give them a hug and say..."it's ok, you're tough,,,don't cry".  He says "I wub you" to us all the time, he  and Roux(our puppy) are best friends, he loves on the cat next door everytime he sees him( lucky cat...ha!), he's stubborn and can throw a temper tantrum with the best of them!, and he is a mama's boy and I love it! ;)  We all spoil him rotten, esp. the boys,  because we just can't resist his sweet little smile!  Gage, you bring so much fun and laughter into our house!  We love you SOOOO much!!

He got a white erase board and I'm not sure he liked it better....Gage, Reed, or Luke?!

We went to Amazing Jake's for his birthday.  He had a blast!  He was so excited to have Aunt Julie and Luke here to help celebrate! 
loved mini golf and hit it a few times....
...but learned quickly that kicking it in is much easier!

he loved this rocket ride.  Even had his hands up....Lol

Shelley and her boys, Carson and Brooks, came to visit for a few days and we had so much fun!  Our boys are the same ages and have always gotten along so well.  And as for Shelley and I....well, we just clicked from day one. Jon laughs at us because he says everytime we get together, we're oblivious to the world around us!  Hey!, that's what good friends do, right?  As always, we stayed super busy and it went by WAY too fast!!  We took the boys to Adrenalina(indoor surfing) and then to a half day camp at ASI gymnastics.  Gage even got to go since he is 3 now, so he has officially been initiated into the Big Boys Club!  You couldn't wipe the grin off his face!  He was so BIG and PROUD! 
He's showing off his ASI bracelette..:)

Me and Shelley
We're going to Galveston for the last part of Spring Break!  It'll be a short trip but the boys are so excited!!...and so am I!

We've made a little progress on the adoption.  Both of our passports came in and Great Wall should have our homestudy reviewed and completed this week, which means we can proceed with the I800!  One step closer...:))

He is such a cutie!! There's just something about those third boys!! Mine's a firecracker too. I'm so jealous that he's potty trained!!!! Ugh...Wesleigh couldn't care less!

Yay! You're homestudy will be ready soon!! Hopefully they'll speed up the I800A approvals a bit!! You're almost there!!!
