This guy is three years old today! He has a heart as big as the state of Wisconsin and a funny, fun-loving personality that’s even bigger. Among his biggest loves: his siblings, baby cows, the big bad wolf, bouncy houses, drums, Prince and the color purple. Big bro told him today that he’s “the best little brother in the whole world” and he’s absolutely right. Happy birthday to my big boy!

Three year old laying down and giggling

He knew I would start preparing his birthday treats once he took his nap.

So when he got in bed he rolled over, grinning, and said, “Papa, go make my cupcakes now.”

And the giant crayon big bro picked out for one of little bro’s birthday presents was a big hit!
