Dear Chris- Year 3

Dearest Chris,

I cant believe we celebrated your third year of life just a few weeks ago!! three years!! You are just so full of life and wonderful to be around.  You are still a chart topper, 40 lbs and 41 inches i believe. Well in the 90s as far as percentiles.  You gotta be big to keep up with Nick, and pretty much will do whatever he tells you to do. And also whatever your cousin kate tells you to do. You idolize her.  You love to play tag, hide and seek, play with your paw patrol pups, trains, cars, ride your bike, run "super fast" and just being around people. You might be the happiest kid i ever met. And the easiest going. And the funniest. I cant describe it, but watching you navigate life it's hard not to smile.

On your third birthday we had a party for both you and nick and Jump N Jacks, you both had the BEST time. You got tons of presents, ate lots of pizza and cake, and played your heart out. You love going to school with your brother and you seem to be learning a lot. You love to please others, and your teachers LOVE you. they couldn't say one bad thing about you. I remember sitting in the car with you are you held a couple jellybeans in your hand, you just were examining it and you said" this looks like an ovoid." My heart melted!

We have put you in swimming lessons at the goldfish swim school (you said one morning " there are no fish in the pool, just kids"), and you have taken off with your skills. You cant touch the bottom, but you have learned the life savings skills to be able to swim by yourself to the wall or so person or island where you can touch or hold on.  You have moved up to the next class and your teacher said last week that you are almost ready to move thru AGAIN!! And she told me last week that you are just "SO much fun!!" with all kinds of enthusiasm. It's true, you are just too much sometimes.

You pretty much want to do everything Nick does these days, so i am excited to enroll you in blast ball this summer. And it will be fun to see you guys swim around in the pool together. You will have your first dentist appointment coming up next month (with your brother), and i find it's just easier when you have your big bro to help you along your way. He sure does look out for you. And try to tease you and work you up too. But overall you are pretty easy going. Just happy to be together. And happy to break out into dance any opportunity you get. And also eat your boogers. You do that a lot too.

So much about you that fills my heart with Joy. Sometimes i cant get enough. I can look at you sometimes with those big dopey eyes and my heart just explodes. I am so luck i get to be your mommy. I Love you so much, dont ever change little buddy!
