Happy Birthday Buddy!

17157826_10210067178690725_2214050175775340225_oToday my son turns three years old. Last night I asked him whose birthday it was tomorrow and he said “mine”. It was adorable. I asked him how old he was going to be and he held up his fingers and said “three birthdays”. I asked him if he wanted a “hundred birthdays” and he gave me a stern look and said that he only has “three birthdays” and held up his fingers again.

What an adorable, loving, crazy, daredevil of a boy. He loves taking risks and doing all things boys love to do. Get dirty, be loud, jump, run, and yes, he even eats his own boogers. As much as I tell him not to he does it anyway.

Over these last three years I have watched my son grow up to be a little man. He is very polite with his pleases and thank yous. He will even be sure to thank you when it’s not exactly necessary. Playing with his sister is on the top of his favorites list, a long with LEGO, mini trains, and his “people”. Mommy and Daddy are proud of our little Stuntman Alex and we are so happy to have him in our lives. Even if he can get a little crazy with his high amounts of energy he is still our baby boy.

I can still remember the day that Alex was born. Mommy and Daddy were at the hospital very early in the morning and we didn’t get to see our baby boy until later that evening. It was a very long day that ended with this cutie making his appearance. The last three years raising you have been amazing. Alex has brought us so many great memories and we look forward to continuing making more with him.

I also plan on starting a YouTube show with him in the near future. I think he’s old enough now for us to put together some funny clips of him being super goofy. That should be starting this summer, but we will see how things come together.

The other day we had a mini celebration over at Mamaw and Pawpaw’s house. Just a few presents, sang Happy Birthday and ate some cupcakes. It wasn’t much but Alex loved it because he was with the people that love him. He also spent the night there so they could spoil their grandson rotten. It didn’t work because he came home super sweet with no rotten bones in his body. I just really hope you have a fantastic day today buddy and I can’t wait to get home to celebrate by eating some cake, playing with some toys, and enjoying my son’s rambunctious life.

Here is a short video put together by Facebook from Alex’s mini birthday party this past Sunday.

My name is Richie and I am a 34 year old father of two. My daughter is seven years old and my son is four. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
