Today is Aidan's third birthday!! We've had such a busy day. Aidan celebrated with his school friends this morning. At his school when someone has a birthday the birthday child brings a poster to school with pictures from infant to present age and they share it with the class. Aidan loved showing all of his pictures. I think he really enjoyed having everyone's attention on him for his special day. After the poster he shared some Transformer and Batman cupcakes with his friends and the class sang Happy Birthday. After school we sat in the carpool line at Cami's school since she had early dismissal. He ate his lunch from his Spiderman lunchbox and went on and on about being THREE and being a BIG BOY...how hes going to play soccer and wear big boy underpants and always listen to his teachers and mommy and daddy (all his idea of what being a big boy means).
Later, after picking Camryn up, we headed to see the pediatrician for Aidan's yearly well check. He was excited about being measured and weighed, but when the nurse took us to the exam room he stopped in the doorway and said "I dont want to do this part!" and turned to walk out of the office! I assured him that there would be no shots and he agreed to go into the exam room. Everything went well and he is perfect as perfect can be! 50th percentile for height and weight, healthy, smart and handsome =)
After the doctor, we did some errands and then all went out to dinner at Rainforest Cafe. He had such a great time and lit up like a firecracker when they brought out the volcano cake with sparklers and a loud crowd of waitstaff singing Happy Birthday! I have never seen a child so proud to be three. Hes been glowing all day long...and the celebrations have only just begun!
