Our baby is THREE! I can't believe he is THREE! Papa Ray took us all out to celebrate Ayden's Birthday at Wasabi. We had our own private table. Good thing, because all Ayden wanted to do was play with his gift Papa got him. All Ayden has been talking about is getting a GARBAGE TRUCK. Yep...that's what he wanted the most for his birthday. So we sat through dinner with the garbage truck on the table...making it load mints for garbage.
Ayden loved his new truck so much...he insisted sleeping with it. I managed to get him to set it outside of his bed, although he would have much rather cuddled with it all night long.
Lots and lots of accomplished happened during his two-year-old times. Ayden learned how to use the potty...in just about a day. Very shortly after he graduated to a big boy bed and hung up his binky on the Binky Tree. He is officially a BIG BOY and a PRESCHOOLER as he started 3 year old preschool a few weeks ago. Ayden can count to 10 and knows how to sing the ABC's. He can dress himself, but would rather Mom do it.
Ayden LOVES to drive his Mini-Coop power wheels around the neighborhood. He really just likes anything that drives. Ayden had a blast riding around on the golf cart (aka: the rider) in PA. He enjoys playing with any of his trucks/scoopers and digging in the dirt with them. Ayden likes to play pretend and gets along pretty well with Allie. He loves to dance and sing...especially if Allie is playing along too.
Ayden likes to watch America's Got Talent (which he calls Captain America) and listen to the song Me Too, Danger Zone, and Stitches. Ayden's favorite foods are cupcake protein bars, Gogurt, and applesauce pouches. He loves his apple juice and still refuses to drink milk. Ayden is still in soccer classes and swim lessons. He is so brave and is used to going under water. Ayden enjoys being physical and getting tickled by Daddy. He can do a somersault.
Update: Ayden celebrated his birthday with all his new preschool friends with Oreo cookies the day after his birthday, since he didn't have school on his actual birthday!
