Joshua's 3rd Birthday!

It's a small miracle I know, but Joshua survived to see his third birthday! There were days when I had my doubts that he would make it. Oh yeah, and I survived to see him turn three too! Even though he is 40 pounds and wears clothes the size of a 4 year old, I swear he's only three. We like to call him "mini-Cim" although there isn't a whole lot that is mini about him. Joshua loves all things animal and dinosaur and decided he wanted a "dinosaur birthday party". (Go ahead Wiggles fans, sing the song. I know it's hard to resist).

Here is the dinosaur birthday cake that I made.

Cim is lighting the candles and the volcano. These are Joshua's buddies here in New York. From left to right we have Cim, Max, Joshua, Mercer and Elliott.

Here's Joshua opening his present (sea life creatures).

Happy Birthday Joshua! I love you!

Happy Birthday to my Best Friend!

Today is Cim's birthday and I just want to say how happy I am that he was born. Even though he is in Switzerland today without me, I still love him! :) Unfortunately I can't make any jokes about how old he is because, as he always reminds me, I am 2 years older than him. Well, I honestly don't know what I would do without my better half. I love you Cim and am so grateful for you. Thanks for making me laugh, for helping me through all the difficult times and for helping me to be a better mom, wife and person. Thank you for loving me in spite of all my weaknesses. Happy Birthday!
