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.

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
