A Letter to my Son on Your Third Birthday


Today you turn three! We all love you! Our family would be incomplete without you. 💙💜💛

You came into this world in a hurry and officially made me part of the club of moms who have delivered with an epidural. We had only been in our home for two weeks, but your arrival made it feel like home.

You are a sweet boy and all you want for your special day is a bday cake with dinosaurs. 🦖 We will also celebrate with pizza at a park because it is 2020 and we are practicing social distancing.

You love singing songs like “Can’t Touch This” but we also hear you singing “Alleluya”. You are quite the entertainer. 🎤 I love hearing your sweet voice singing in the back seat while I drive.

I pray you will be a great leader some day because you like to tell people what to do, even the neighbors’ puppy🐕 and…..everyone else around you.

You love licking guacamole containers clean and you could eat beans with every meal….but that would be dangerous. 🤪

You like adventure and you are always right behind your big brothers. 🛴

You have special games with everyone- you snap and point to say “tranquilo Papá” 👉 and you try to give me kisses on the mouth 👄….you “kiss me en la boca” because in this house full of boys Mommy’s mouth is only for daddy so this is our game.

Josué is the brother you cuddle up with to read a book. 📖 With Josiah you can spend hours building forts and hiding from everyone. ⛺

We love you so much! Happy 3rd birthday to our Baby Shark, 🦈because in this family you will always be the baby. Besos! Te Amo! 😘
