My baby boy is 3 today! Hooray! Having two older brothers, he has been a little more advanced in some areas. This for example is a big one. Plus, after these episodes, he is now fully potty trained. And, he was a piece of cake. It was maybe a week and three "accidents" and he was done! I deserve it after my first two potty training experiences. My point is that he has seemed three for a long time already.
My sister Kim and her husband John had this theory (according to their children) that naughty babies make for wonderful toddlers. And good babies make for challenging toddlers. But, Clay has defied this. He was a breeze as a baby and an absolute joy as a toddler. Clay has been the exact opposite of the "terrible twos." Everyone needs an entertaining Clay at their house. Everyone!
I love being Clay's mom. He is my good little buddy.
He came down the stairs this morning clapping for himself when he saw his birthday decorations. Then he realized that everyone in the neighborhood had flags in their yards for his birthday (not for memorial day)! I love this boy!
