Happy Birthday Simon!


Three years ago today. I can't believe it. 3 years old.
I was so nervous towards the end of my pregnancy with Simon. He just didn't seem to be moving so much. We went into the doctor and he gave me one more ultra sound. Estimated weight - 10.3 lbs! No wonder he wasn't moving as much. The doctor asked if I wanted to schedule a C-section. I asked if I could at least try to go as planned. That was on a Friday and he wanted to induce labor on Monday. Monday we headed into the hospital. At that point we still didn't know if we were going to have a boy or girl. He came out a whopping 9 lbs 14 oz.
He as grown into an amazing little boy. I looked back to my post when he turned two and was surprised how much is still very true. He is so loving and kind, shy and tender hearted. He is also all boy. He loves to jump and run and throw. He loves cars, trains, puzzles and books. He is becoming quite the helper. The other day he said, "I love sweeping the floor." I considered getting it on video so that I could save it for a later date when I'm sure he will no longer love sweeping.

What a handsome, sweet boy you are,
Simon! I love it when your Mom gives us updates on how you are doing. Grandpa and I are sorry we missed your birthday, but Grammy was really sick. We will come see you in the next couple of weeks and bring your
present to you then. We love you,
Simon. You are a special boy to Grammy and Grandpa.

Simon is such a hoot! The things that he says are priceless and most of the time they are also hilarious. I love how he shows his excitement, you never have to wonder how he feels about anything. I love to hear him talk and I'm pretty sure that he loves to talk to anyone that will listen.
