3 Years OLD!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROYCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe it has been 3 years!!!

Royce was punching away til the punching bag swung back and knocked him down. then he'd get right back up and punch more. silly boy.

Just working on his tan. After swimming he likes me to lay his towel on this chair and he lays there to dry off.

Too bad we can't get him to sit on the toilet for real. He will sit on the seat, fully clothed. But DOES NOT want to actually go pee pee or poo poo in the toilet. He is terrified of it. Just getting him this far was a huge accomplishment! i hope he will adjust to the idea of potty training a lot sooner than later.


Sunday we had Reyns sisters and their families over to grandma and papa's house(which they weren't there) and my sisters and their hubbies came.

blowing out his candles :)

he looks really scared in this picture haha. we were singing to him, i wonder what was going through his head this very moment haha.

bringing out the cupcake

Lightning Mcqueen tricycle! From the Jensens, Halls and Webbs. Royce didn't know how to take it in haha. He was excited for it and afraid of it.

Checking out his new dump truck with the other mega blocks from Aubrey and Patrick.

Cars coloring book. - you kind of get the theme of his gifts. CARS everything!

2 kinds of enchiladas, the left is buffalo sauce chicken enchiladas - the right green chili chicken enchiladas. delicious!

Marlo brought fruit salad! I love the pineapple bowls. it was great!

I can't believe Royce is 3 years old! We are so lucky to have him in our home. Royce is just a sweet little boy! Royce has the sweetest personality and spirit. He says the funniest things and does the funniest things. We are always laughing and he loves to entertain us. He is talking so much more than ever before. He loves to say the prayer, anywhere and everywhere. He loves mac n cheese and dinosaur chicken nuggets and peaches and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!. I know not the best foods for him. But we are just happy he is eating something.
Royce loves to sing and dance. Loves to read books and play with mom and dad. Loves Joy school and playing with the kids. Royce has an amazing imagination. He likes to pretend he is a puppy and well other animals, but puppy mostly. He watched the movie Bolt and now he always tells us he has a super bark. And he barks often which i have to remind him he is a boy and to stop barking. While we were in San Diego Royce was whining about something. And i finally said "stop whining Royce, just speak!" And he barked at me haha. Speak to him i guess means bark haha. What a funny kid. It did however distract him and he quit whining and we all got a good laugh out of it. haha. Royce gives the best hugs and kisses and he is so sincere. I love being home with him and watching him learn and grow everyday. Royce is such a blessing in our lives. I am so grateful to be his mom. We love you Royce so much! Happy Birthday son!

We were able to spend 8 days in San Diego this August. Reyn had a break before his clinicals start! So we enjoyed a wonderful vacation with his parents in San diego. They spoiled us rotten! We had such a wonderful time. Lots of eating out, lots of bike rides, lots of relaxing, lots of walking, zoo, beach, etc.
