Birthday for Zay Zay!

April 29th, your 3rd birthday, and you are as full of life as ever. Isaiah, the baby of the family and you are no longer a baby. At just 3 years old certain aspects of your personality are already abundantly clear. You are your own man. You are not swayed in your decision making by what your big brothers do or say. You want what you want regardless of others. This confidence makes you endearing and a joy to most people you meet. You look everyone straight in the eye, hold their gaze, wave a friendly hello and smile a confident grin. You just can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want to stop and talk to you. You can talk well at this point, expressing your every thought and need, except when your mad about something. Your confidence, while endearing, can lead you to believe that you should have whatever you want whenever you want, which can be a challenge for both mommy and you. You are most disappointed when you can't keep up with your older brothers, and even though you make valiant efforts, there are still times when they race ahead and you are crushed- but never for long as they always come back for you. You have a great sense of humor- you'll tell me something crazy like "monkeys are purple" and then say "just kidddingggg" with a big grin and a giggle. You make our home a happier place and we love you dearly Isaiah Jonathan. Happy 3rd Birthday!

I messed up the pictures so I can't do captions, but the saucer is Zay at 5 months and the ice cream is 18 months. We celebrated this year by going to the doctor to get his head injury taken care of (more on that in another post) and then going to Walmart to let him pick out his own cake and candles. He went with a balloon theme. His chosen gift was a Planet Hero action figure- Ace.

Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
