I never realized just how fast time flies until I had Redmond.  It does not seem possible that three years has gone by already.  I have a three year old.  Mind blowing.  Really.

We had his big party the weekend before his birthday, so his actual birthday was pretty low key.

We started the morning with him opening a few presents.  Friends of ours sold us a ton of trains, tracks and a train table since their kids don't play with them any longer.  We decided to give him a few trains and some tracks for his birthday.  The rest will wait for Christmas.

Jason went into work late so he could play and make Redmond breakfast.  Redmond just loves it when he gets to play with daddy in the mornings!
He got a special play date with his grandma and grandpa for lunch.  They came and picked him up and took him to Mancino's for pizza.  Then, grandpa took him to the park.  He was fired up when he got home and ready to play with his trains some more.
We let him pick what he wanted for dinner.  He went back and forth between pizza (yes, even though he had that for lunch) and Mexican.  He finally decided on going to "the restaurant" to have Mexican.  Cheese quesadilla, rice and water it is!  Definitely one of his favorite meals.
Since we had cake at his party (and since he's not really a fan of cake anyways), we had birthday cookies.  Chocolate chip of course.
Redmond, we love you so much!  You are so bright, hilarious, intelligent and have such an active imagination.  You love your little sister so much and are happy to play with her, at least for short periods of time :). You are a total mama's boy, but you absolutely love playing with daddy.  You're still a bit of a picky eater, but every once in awhile you'll get adventurous and try something new.  You still love your "hot egg and banana" for breakfast and most days you have PB&J with grapes for lunch.  Surprisingly, you really like broccoli!  You are thisclose to being completely potty trained.  Yay!!  It only took a little over a week.  We're so proud of you!!  You have made huge improvements when it comes to strangers.  Depending on your mood you will talk to anyone, usually making them laugh out loud.  You love going to Kindermusik each week - you just love Ms. Lisa!  You're always singing and dancing.  It's amazing how many songs you know by heart.  You're pretty good at making ones up too though :). Redmond, we love watching you grow and become a little man.  You always know how to cheer us up and make us smile.  You're full of hugs and tell us "I love you" all day long.  Thank you for being you!!

Unbelievable.  I will have a preschooler in the fall.
