Reagan is Three!

He calls himself Daddy Mario Kart. :)

Oh, Reagan! My one and only sweet son. Thank goodness God gave you to us and provided for our family a reason to play superheroes and dinosaurs and sword fights and guns. Haha. My daughters aren't into that stuff as much on their own, and we need a healthy dose of boy in this girl-dominated place!

But really...I can't believe that you are three. A piece of me just weeps a little bit inside. I said it with Evelyn, and I said it with Gracie, and now I'm saying it again with you. There is just something about that number three. You are turning into a big boy. And on these days I always remember how, before I had kids, I would look at three year olds and think it would be forever before I had one of those of my very own. Now my third-born is three. THREE three year olds have passed through this house. It's a little surreal!

Reagan is sensitive and sweet and definitely my little mama's boy. When he's sleepy and grumpy and I ask him, "Do you need a drink? Do you need to lay down? Do you need a blanket?" He shakes his head no, points to me, and says, "I want YOU!" And it melts my heart every single time. I can't help but stop what I'm doing to give this kid a snuggle. 

Even though he loves his mom, nothing can replace all of the men in his life. He has been especially attached to Eric lately, cheering when he walks through the door every night. He adores both of his Papas. I hate to say it, but it's happened more than once when we're leaving grandma and grandpa's house that he would much rather trade in his old mom and stay with Papa for just a little bit longer. :) And my brother Roger. Oh my goodness. Reagan calls him "Junior" and follows him everywhere when he is around. He wants to hang out with the big boys!

Like Gracie was before him, Reagan has been a bit of a late talker. It's taken us a long time to get a peek inside of his brain and find out what goes on in there. But he is saying more and more every day. Now Eric and I spend most of our time with him laughing at all of the cute and hilarious things he says. We can't get enough of him! 

Reagan's favorites:

*Superheroes - especially Spiderman, Batman, and the Hulk!
*Food - Reagan can't get enough cheese!
*Lately he's been loving all things HALLOWEEN! He talks about it nonstop, points out all of the decorations when we're driving, and will point to the most cute and innocent thing and say, "Oooh, spooky Halloween!" I think it might just be his first favorite holiday, haha.
*Pummeling his sisters. He's all boy there.

When I ask him what all of his favorite stuff is, he just says, "Mario Kart!" :D

Thankfully Eric isn't traveling this week, so we should be able to have a family night this evening with our little man. Traditionally I let the kids pick out dinner for their birthday. I just asked, and so far it sounds like he wants some Dairy Queen. That will probably change a few times this afternoon, haha. Whatever they want on their day!

Reagan, we love you so much and wish you the happiest third birthday! You have a big year ahead!! Can't wait to watch you grow some more!

But not too much. 

You'll be mama's boy forever, right? :) Happy Birthday, little guy!
