Happy 3rd Birthday Jaydan!!!!

Here are some pics of Jaydan throughout the last 3 years! I will be adding a couple from when he was born when I figure out my scanner.

This post is very bitter sweet for me. The last few weeks I have had a really hard time with Jaydan turning 3. I dont know why it has been so tough but it has. Within the last few weeks I have been looking through pics of him over the last 3 years and I would find myself in tears. Then sometimes just looking at him would make me tear up. Dont get me wrong I LOVE the stage Jaydan is at right now and just when I think he cant get any cuter, sweet, smart or handsome he proves me wrong. I love this kid more and more everyday. I love him more and more every second is more like it! Jaydan brings so much joy into our house. He lights up the room that he is in. He has the most amazing little personality and there is never a dull moment when Jaydan is near. This past year and been one crazy roller coaster for us with Jaydan. We went through some "Terrible 2s", went through giving up the binky which was not easy with that kid, went through first road trips, went through first surgery and cancer scare and many many more. Jaydan is so strong for his age and I often find myself admiring his strength. He went through some really scary stuff this year and took it all with a smile and gave mommy lots of hugs and smiles to keep her strong through it all. Jaydan is very smart and blows me away everyday with all the new things he says and does. He has known his ABCs for almost a year now, sings numerous songs word for word, can tell me bed time stories and gets them right, he knows his left and right perfectly, can count to 30 or 40, knows all his colors and many more things. He is my kid for sure he can sing at least 3 Tim McGraw songs word for word :-) Jaydan has such a special spirit about him. He absolutely adores his baby sister. I feared when I was pregnant he would be rough with her or jealous but he loves that girl to death. They do have their moments when the other has something they want but they are truly best buds! He has to know where she is at all times. He is very concerned about her when he cant see her. I love that about them. I love the love they have for each other at such a young age. It melts my heart. I cant put into words how amazing this little boy is!
Mommy loves you so very much. You and sissy are everything to me! You bring so much to our family. I look forward to seeing you grow more and more. I know no matter what I will be so proud of you every single day!! I hope you had a great birthday!! Happy 3rd Birthday my Jay bug!!!
Love always,
