He’s 3 years old


Three years ago last Sunday on May 19th Saylor turned 3 years old.  The last three years have gone by in a blink of an eye and it feels as if Saylor has always been in our lives. Our sweet son is kind, helpful, funny and full of hugs and kisses. I treasure the moments when he asks if I want hugzies (his word) and kisses. I always say yes and scoop him up give him a squeeze and soak in those sweet kisses. I know a few more years will pass and he won’t offer those hugs and kisses as easily and I will miss those times when all he wants is to cuddle with me to reassure and comfort him.

We celebrated Saylor’s birthday with a special road trip to Calgary Alberta to visit his paternal grandparents.  The first leg of our trip to Calgary went really well and we spent a night in Golden BC before continuing on to Calgary the next morning. We had a fun filled and relaxing week. Saylor was doted on, loved and joyful spoiled for the entire time we were in Calgary. His grandparents and Uncle love him dearly!

We made a special trip to the Calgary Zoo which is a very large zoo full of wonderful creatures. Unfortunately the battery on my camera wasn’t fully charged and stopped working part way through the day.

We made a short trip to a smaller community called Airdrie and found a nice park that Saylor had a great time exploring.

When we returned home we found these sweet treats waiting for us from Saylor’s maternal Grandmother. Sadly I don’t have any pictures of the birthday cake we had in Calgary.

3 cupcakes

my cupcake Saylor has developed a love of sweets like his Mommy and was thrilled to have his very own whole cupcake for the first time. Usually he shares with Mommy and Daddy. He loved this sweet treat.

We had a great trip and it was a fun way to celebrate Saylor turning 3 years old!
