Bradford is 3!

We had a great weekend celebrating our B Man’s birthday.  I can’t believe this guy is already 3.  He is such a gift to our family, and has brought us so much joy over the past 3 years.  I feel a little at a loss for words to describe how much he means to us and how much he has grown us up as we have learned to be parents.

B Man carries with him such a joy for life and an excitement that it is hard not to smile just thinking about him.  He laughs with total abandonment, sings at the top of his lungs often, and is constantly narrating everything that he does.  You never really have to question where he is, or what he is doing (and if he’s quiet, you know he’s up to something he shouldn’t be doing!)  He loves people intensely, but also seems to need down time to refuel.  His favorite person in the world is his Dad, who he wants to be exactly like in every way.  It was delightful celebrating his life with some family and friends, and also bittersweet as we realized that our little boy is no longer a baby.  He’s growing up, and we feel honored to be his parents. Here are just a few pictures from his party.

Excited about his new bike, and also to have his cousins come visit:

B Man in his “party shirt.”  He wears this shirt to every party that we go to, and so when I asked him what he wanted to wear on his birthday, he appropriately said, “My party shirt!”DSC_0098
