"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

This is my baby. OK, so he's really my baby's baby. But I call him my baby.
I also call him my little man, my little munchkin and my cutie pie.

Grandmas can do that.

His parents also call him "Goo" or "Goo Goo" or "The Goo."

We are SO going to confuse this cherubic child.

I just happened to have my mom over on the same day that I was going to babysit for Liam, aka the goo goo munchkin man. It was also his third birthday. We decided to have a little early afternoon mini birthday celebration for him. Complete with little presents and cupcakes.

Yes, he is wearing a pink birthday hat. Sorry, John. It was that or
the Corgis' Christmas reindeer antlers. We went with the pink.

Really? I can open another one? Cool.

Umm, yes, that is frosting on his face.

And these are the coolest markers from Crayola.
They only color on their special paper.
Not on the walls. Or on your clothes. Or your skin.
♥ Awesome. ♥

My mom always decorates her cards with the coolest stickers and things...

We had lots of fun.

Because when you are three, happiness is all about singing Happy Birthday,
blowing out the candles,
the noisiest party horns, and opening the presents.
OH! Yes, and the sprinkles on the cupcakes.
