The other day I was looking back at my September picture folder and thought, wow, did this really happen this month? I can’t believe my son started preschool this month…it seems like he’s been going for months! And his birthday party? Can’t believe that was just 2 weeks ago. So much has happened this month, and with my work at school in full swing, I can’t seem to keep track of anything.

Thank the Lord for Google calendar and photos to prove what and when things happened!
So…preschool. Preschool started the first week of September. Same school – just new teachers and new classmates.

He has adjusted pretty well and has found new friends to hang out with. Now all I need to do is to pick him up on time and somehow muster up the courage to talk to the parents to start scheduling playdates! (both things which I am horrible at)

The weather has been so nice this month. We have been enjoying playing in the yard and even had dinner outside on the back porch!

Blee’s 3rd birthday was packed with people we love. It was all around a fun, relaxing day with a jumper, Lego Duplo table, coloring table, and lots of food.


Soccer is going well. Blee is the oldest of the bunch, so I think he likes to show off his skillz…

We were also able to celebrate our little friend's 1st birthday party. They had the cutest camping theme with tents, boats and pinwheels. 

Whew! Now I'm off to searching the internet for a Captain America-ninja costume for my son. Wish me luck!

Happy Birthday to my little, silly, stinky boy! I'm so excited for you to become the BIG three, and I am looking forward to watching you grow into a handsome, loving little boy.

And since I can't quite put into words what I am feeling right now, I'm going to borrow the words from one of my favorite books.

I am your parent, you are my child
I am your quiet place, you are my wild
I am your calm face, you are my giggle
I am your wait, you are my wiggle
I am your audience, you are my clown
I am your London Bridge, you are my falling down
I am your Carrot Sticks, you are my licorice
I am your dandelion, you are my first wish
I am your water wings, you are my deep
I am your open arms, you are my running leap
I am your way home, you are my new path
I am your dry towel, you are my wet bath
I am your dinner, you are my chocolate cake
I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake
I am your finish line, you are my race
I am your praying hands, you are my saving grace
I am your favourite book, you are my new lines
I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine
I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo
I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you

- "You Are My I Love You" by MaryAnn Cusimano Love

Happy 3rd birthday, son.
