Jbird is 3 years old

My second boy Jbird is 3 years old. Seriously guys when did that happen? Don't mind me while I take this all in, I now have a 5-year old, a 3-year old and a 1 year old. Insane in the most amazing yet crazy way.

Jbird had an awesome year. He started daycare right before his second birthday and for the first time in his life he was cared for by someone that wasn't family. It was a huge adjustment for him. Then we hit a huge roadblock with his speech delay and inability to express himself using words but we've been doing speech therapy since April and he has made great progress.

Jbird has always been my calm, cool, and collected baby and nothing has changed in that department.  He has embraced his role of big brother really well and you should see how good he is with Bean. If he bumps into him by accident he immediately says "sorry" and gives him a hug and a kiss. He is Tman's best friend, they always want to do everything together. They love chasing each other around the house and play rough.

We spent the entire weekend celebrating our Jbird with our families.  On his actual birthday, we went on a pirate cruise followed by cake at home. I had seen those cruises advertised for some time and finally decided to take the family. My aunt, cousin and hubby's mom joined us for our pirate adventure and we all had such a great time.

We managed to get a family picture with the monuments in the background during the cruise never mind that none of the boys are not looking. By the way do you love it as much as I do that hubby dressed the boys and they were all matching with him ;)
There was a fight at sea and the big boys loved it. Check out Tman and hubby at war :)
My little pirates :)
There were also treasures at the end of the war
They sang a special pirate birthday song and it was so awesome

Everyone had so much fun on the pirate adventure, we'll definitely have to come back for more. After the cruise, we had lunch in the city then went home where the rest of the family joined us to cut the cake. My brother J brought Jbird's favorite cake, oreo ice cream cake. I think it's my favorite now too :).

The look on Jbird's face when he saw the cake is priceless
Then we opened a few presents
We had such a great day celebrating our sweet Jbird's birthday. The next day we took the boys to our local splash park and brought my grandma along for the ride. This place has been our favorite hang out spot all Summer, I am going to be sad when it's not warm enough to go there anymore.

As soon as we got in the car, Bean fell asleep. We let him sleep in the stroller under grandma's watchful eye while we took over the splash park
My cousin was such great help with the boys all Summer all. It was nice to have her around. I was so happy that she was always giving Jbird the one on one attention that he so cravesazy kid
My mom brought her bathing suit this week because she wanted to get in water with with the boys

We are such posers, please don't mind us
Jbird had a ball, going down the slide backward and running around the park

Me and my mommy with the big boys. People always tell us how much we look alike

Bean slept the entire hour that we were at the park, that's my boy. I swear my kids will sleep anywhere
After the splash park we went to my brother's place and hung out there with the kids to include my adorable niece. It was so much fun. We try to get together at least every week that way we get to see everyone and Sunday is the best day because everyone is usually available.

I had to get the girls together for a quick photo op and Bean joined in on the fun
What an awesome weekend spent celebrating our Jbird. I love that we live close to family and can spend some amazing time with them often. Happy birthday sweet boy of mine, we love you to the moon and back.
