Pete Turned 3!

Pete turned 3 years old at the beginning of February...and we had so much fun celebrating with him. This is the first special day that he really understood there was something to be excited about and that he was the highlight of the day. He was so excited about everything, from the moment he woke up. And though we didn't go to Chucky Cheese or have a big, super cool party -- he had so much fun. Being with family and loving life are about the best things you can have on any birthday. We are thankful moment by moment for you Pete.

Pete wanted his hat on first thing, this is 6:15 am and he was skipping around and singing happy birthday to himself!

Thanks to some visitors we had, Pete got his favorite powdered donuts on his birthday morning...DELICIOUS!

Pete and Mommy always pose under our birthday sign - I hope I can always hold him for this picture....:).

Could his little grin get any more goofy and sweet? He got some new clothes from MeMa and he was pretty pleased with them, as you can tell.

No better present then playing with his 10 Rhodesian Ridgeback puppies all day. He absolutely loves his puppies and has been so sad to see all but one puppy go to new homes. Needless to say, Mom and Dad have not been so sad!

Jude and Lily were 7 1/2 months old on Pete's birthday and were happy to celebrate too!

I love this picture of Pete concentrating so hard on hold up 3 fingers, that he stuck his tongue out! He was really proud of himself for figuring out how to keep three fingers in the air.
