Happy Birthday Chandler...


Isnt his grin contagious?

Yesterday my liitle Chan-man turned 3 years old! We had a birthday party with all of his friends and cousins. We got a pinata and chan kept asking" when are we doing my fiesta?" Dora much? I can not believe how fast the time has gone. It seems like yesterday I delivered the 8lb 8oz baby and now he is like a boy who wants to go to school and go play with his friends. Where has the time gone. Seeing Chan get so big has made me cherish all the little things with Brody because I know how fast they grow. Chandler is seriously the light of my life. He can cheer me up in any situation. He loves being the center of attention and as long as you will laugh at him he will continue to entertain you. His smile is so contagious and beautiful. Chandler is our little daredevil. He will jump off of or try anything new that you put in front of him. He always wants to do what the big kids are doing. Chandler also has quite the soft side. He is very loving and always giving me hugs. He loves his little brother, sometimes too much. He will always get brody a toy if he is crying and try to make him laugh. Chandler has such a strong personality, he is very determined. It makes me nervous to be his mother because that strong personality can either be good or bad! From the day Chandler was born I could feel his strong spirit and his valiancy. I know that he will be a big influence in my life and the life of his friends. He is always wanting to read his scriptures (The Friend) and sing church songs. He tolds us that" Ty is so lucky, he gets to go to primary!" I am proud that he is eager to learn the things that we try to teach him. Chandler is such a busy little guy and is very mischevious. He will figure out a way to get into anything he wants to play with. He is very smart when it comes to putting things two and two together to accomplish something. He keeps me running and I always have to be on the lookout. He always has a new bump or bruise and doesnt seem to mind. He is very tough. Do we need to mention how many times he has run away?? Chandler is an incredible friend. Ever since we moved into our home the kids have just flocked to Chandler. He has friends of all age groups. He is constantly coming to get fruit snacks or popsicles to give to his friends. He is very aware that everyone get one and no one feel left out. I love watching him be so giving and willing to share. I love Chandler so much and cant imagine my life without him. Maybe its because I am his mom but he just the cutest little guy I have ever seen. I love hanging out with him and just watching him in action. I know that he can accomplish anything he puts his mind to! I love you Chandler.

We got Chan this basketball hoop for his bday

sad to say he likes the box it came in better than the hoop.

We got Chandler this garbage truck because he loves the garbage man but when he found it in the garage we told him we were taking it back because he kept playing with it. So I had it in my trunk to take back to Wal Mart and this is where we found him playing with it!! Kinda scary but what a stinker to go looking for it.

Happy Birthday Chan.
I can't believe my favorite little boy is already three. More so I can't believe you are a mother of a three year old. So much fun.

Happy Birthday, Chan-Man! It looks like you got spoiled and that B-ball hoops looks super fun! That was a really sweet tribute to him, Rikki. Your boys are adorable. Oh, and I'm glad you had fun in Portland. I'm a little behind with my blogging...sorry.
