Suddenly – you’re you. You’ve figured yourself out this year, kiddo. You know what you like (and so do we), you know what you want (…and so do we). You’re no longer satisfied following your big sister around and doing everything she does. You want to do stuff, too. So we take turns doing stuff…lots and lots of turns.
This year brought more milestones than I thought possible. You turned into a kid right before our eyes. Goodbye to cribs. Goodbye to diapers. Goodbye to Nuks and Elmo (sob). Hello to big boy beds, underwear, Super heroes and TALKING. My goodness, little man– you can talk. We never thought we’d see the day where you would out talk your sister, but trying to listen to both of you at the same time is quite possibly one of the funniest (and mildly excruciating) tasks we’ve ever been presented with.
So…who is Holden on his third birthday? Your sister laughs at almost everything you do. You like to tell everyone you're a smart little boy. If you do something wrong, you get really serious and tell us in the most sincere little voice "I really, really sorry." You love the Hulk and will often talk in a Hulk voice. You suddenly really like barbecue sauce. Whenever we get your hair cut, you repeat "I don't want a silly guy hair cut" over and over...and over again. When you're comfortable, you tell people you're warm and cozy. You're adorable and cuddly and such a funny guy - and we can't believe you're three!
Happy birthday, Holden!
