EJ is turning THREE

Feisty, loving, cuddly, demanding, loud, snuggly, sweet, sincere, wild, little love bug!
Somehow you are turning three in just five days! This year has healed so much for you. You are now on track  developmentally, you are learning and growing everyday. You are still small for your age but you are finally starting to fit in 3 T clothing! Therapy and illness are behind us now and I am just in awe of all you have conquered and all you have overcome. You are an inspiration!!
You are still so very loving. You love to give "gungles" and kisses and you LOVE to sing. Your voice is just so precious. Your favorite things right now are dinosaurs and trains. We just recently found the show "dinosaur train" and I think you are in heaven every time you watch it.
Your happiness in contagious and your smile is just about the best thing in the world. You randomly tell me you love me all the time and it melts my heart. I also hear you copy what I say when you repeat things back to Matthew. Yesterday I heard you tell him, "Hey there love bug". You are too cute for words.
You do not like it when when I tell you not to do something. You yell at me to stop yelling at you even though I wasn't yelling! You don't throw many tantrums but when you do they can get bad. You mostly only do that when Austin is involved! You love Austin to bits but also drive each other crazy. Such is the life of siblings. But even so, you would rather play with him any day than play alone. 
You are starting to get your own snacks and juice boxes now. You will open the fridge and look through it, or grab a banana. You still need help putting the straw in the juice box but your independence is growing so much lately. Potty training is still a ways off but you are going pee in the potty every once in a while. I think we will really tackle it over the summer.
Your favorite foods are chicken nuggets, cheese sticks, cottage cheese, milk, juice, pickles, chicken, hot dogs, beans, asparagus, french bread dipped in olive oil with spices, and pasta. And of course, you will do anything for chocolate! We have started doing good bucks with you when you do something good, and time outs when you didn't do a good job listening, Like when you wont stop hitting Austin with a toy :) When Austin isn't here you love to snuggle on the couch and watch a movie with me. When outside you are all energy and you love to play with other kids. You are not as shy as Austin was.
Your green eyes and crazy, crazy blond curls make my life so bright. I don't know what I would do without you EJ and I am so very thankful I have you. You are my little buddy and I wouldn't change a thing about you!!!  I can't wait till we move so we can have your party! It will be dinosaur fun!! Happy 3 years sweet boy. May this year be the best yet!!!!

I can't believe he's almost THREE! I always think of him as being such a little guy--but he's not! Happy almost birthday to EJ!
