My baby is officially three and has (I feel like) grown up over night. One moment he was a little toddler and then I turned around and he is a little boy. He is so excited to be three and is taking his role as a “big boy” very seriously. This weekend we had so much fun celebrating sweet P the whole time. We started Friday night with a party with all the cousins and family. Then Saturday we continued celebrating with a fun outing to Dads Slot Cars for some car racing (actually a lot of fun!), we had an early dinner and went to Triple Scoop’d for ice cream, and ended the day with popcorn and a movie in our jammies.
Preston loves football, and specifically the Chicago Bears, so when I asked him what kind of birthday he wanted I was not surprised when he said a Bears party! I got pretty much everything from Amazon, and it was so simple to put it together. Here are the banner, candles, the bears balloons and orange balloons. Then I got this kit that included the plates, napkins, cups, and tablecloths. The polo that the boys wore is just a plain white collared shirt with a football patch that I ironed on. And the cake was (once again) from Sweet T’s Bakery. I absolutely love this bakery and highly recommend using them or stopping in for a sweet treat if you are in/near Arlington Heights.
Update on Preston
Preston is the total third boy in every way, shape and form. He loves playing rough with his brothers (who he calls ‘my boys’). And he would play football all day every day if we let him. But as active as he is, he is the also so content just playing quietly by himself. He loves dinosaurs, Blippi, and dancing. He cracks me up and melts my heart all at the same time. Preston is so much fun and definitely the life of the party.
Of the three boys, Preston is (and always has been) the pickiest eater. He will not try something that looks different and would rather be hungry than eat something he doesn’t want to. His favorite things to eat are: yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, apples, strawberries, broccoli, and any condiment. He would eat ketchup, bbq sauce, chick-fil-a sauce, etc by the spoonful with every meal if he had it his way.
Preston is in school 3 days per week and loves it so much! Other than school, Preston isn’t involved in any activities at the moment. We just finished a session of swimming lessons at CAST Water Safety in Forest Park. But now we are just waiting for the weather to get nicer to be able to play outside and spend more time at the park.
Love you Preston!
