If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, then you know that parties are usually a pretty big thing around here. My babies’ birthday parties in particular have always been special affairs created with tons of details and handmade projects. (See here, here, and here.) However, their birthdays are fairly close together (March 20th and May 7th), and after Marina’s epic Pink and Gold Princess Birthday Party, I was all party-planned out.
So I let Roman’s Papa take over all of the party-planning duties for Roman’s third birthday party — and I had absolutely nothing to do with it. I have to say, he did an amazing job. He and Roman decided on a “Transformers” theme and everything turned out adorable. Roman loved it and he had a wonderful day celebrating with his favorite people in the world, his cousins.
I know that this is probably the most cliché thing in the world to say, but I really cannot believe that Roman is 3. It really does seem like just yesterday when we were bringing him home from the hospital in his tiny little newborn outfit that I had so carefully picked out and packed up in the weeks before his birth. And now he is a full-fledged little boy. He is truly the most remarkable person that I know. He is sweet and funny and — my goodness — he is so incredibly smart. He is gifted and talented and wild and loving.
I really do not have words to express my love for him. He is my sunshine and my best friend. He is my greatest blessing and I thank God for him every day.
I hope you had the best birthday ever, Roman. I hope that you have one hundred more and that each one gets better & better!
