Happy Birthday, Brody!

Today was Brody’s 3rd birthday! We spent the day celebrating as a family! Josh took of work so that we could devote our entire day to doing lots of fun things with our birthday boy.

When he woke-up this morning, we told him he could either have pancakes or donuts for breakfast. He chose pancakes!

While he ate, Josh sent in Brody’s application for preschool for next fall! Crazy, right? Our church has a private school that has 2 day preschool for 3 year olds. We have wanted to get Brody on the waiting list for next fall, but had to wait until he was 3 to be able to send in his application, so we sent it in today since he is 3 now. :)

We played this morning while Jillian napped and then got dressed to go eat lunch.

Love this two cuties! They both look so big!

Before we left the house we checked the mail and Brody received 2 birthday cards! He was very excited!

We went to Chick-fil-a for lunch…Brody’s favorite. He was posing with his apple slice!

After lunch, we took Jillian home so she could nap. Julee came over to stay at the house with Jillian so that we could Brody to see The Lion King!

The last 15 minutes he sat in my lap and fell asleep! We carried him out asleep and as soon as he woke-up he started telling us how much he loved the movie!

We continued the fun this evening by going to Chuck E. Cheese to play! Brody’s favorite thing there is this monster truck! He spent most of our time there “driving” it!

Then, we made a stop by Toys R Us! He loves to go sit on the power wheels and pretend he is driving!


He ended his birthday with a vanilla milkshake that Gigi dropped off at the house!

I think he had a great day celebrating his birthday! I know Josh and I had so much fun spending the day with him and celebrating 3 wonderful years!

Sweet picture Brody the day he was born!


I honestly feel like this picture was taken just the other day. I wish I could go back and just snuggle that little baby again! I am so thankful that God gave this sweet little boy to us! There is not a day that goes by that I am not reminded of God’s perfect plan and perfect timing when I look at Brody. I am so incredibly grateful that God gave him to us even when we didn’t think we were ready to be parents. We cannot even imagine our lives without him. He brings so much joy!! What a sweet, sweet 3 years we have had with our precious boy!

Happy Birthday, Brody!!
