More of Andrew's Birthday

We took Andrew to Jumpin Jacks for his birthday. Some of his cousins came with us and others met us there. All the kids had a great time jumping and sliding! My kids were worn out by the end of the night.

Frontwards or backwards, from the biggest to the smallest, Andrew loved them all!

Andrew is 3!

My baby boy turned 3 on Thursday. I can't believe he is already 3. I don't remember much from when Andrew was an infant. I think we were in survival mode that first year. Here are some things I love about Andrew:
He gives the best bear hugs.
He has a great smile and beautiful dimples.
He is Emma's best friend, and Julia's little buddy.
He loves basketball and any other type of ball he sees.
His big dark green eyes.
The sweet way he says, "I love you, mommy!"
He is a gum addict.
The cute cowlick in his hairline that makes it look like his hair is always styled.
His favorite shows: Backyardigans, Dora, and Diego.
He likes to be clean.
He always has to be in the front in the tub.
So many more reasons to love this little man.

Can you say OCD?

We have a little neat freak on our hands. Andrew is not one of those little boys who likes to play in the mud. He doesn't even like to play in our sandbox because he hates the feel of dirty hands. He taught himself at a very early age how to push a stool up to the sink and wash his hands with soap and water. Now he has started to clean Emma also.

You can't see this picture very well, but it was taken just after Andrew and Emma had eaten cheetos, a snack which Andrew usually declines because he doesn't like his hands to get all orange and messy.

He's concentrating so hard on cleaning his hands he can't take two seconds to look at the camera. He would die if he knew he had cheeto crumbs on his nose!
