Happy third birthday, my sweet boy. You are a wonderful gift to us.  You have brought so much joy to our house, along with lots of noise and mayhem.  You remind me so much of the Allstate car insurance commercials.  Trouble finds you, and you thrive on making me shake my head and wonder what makes that little brain of yours work.

You are incredibly sensitive and cuddly, I love this about you.  I can’t count how many times a day you come up to me and kiss my cheek, or rub my face. Snuggling with you is one of the greatest parts of my day.  Every night you ask me if we can “nuggle” it warms my heart to know that you like to be close enough to rub my hair with your nose.


You love to play with Mac, he is your best buddy, and right-hand man.  It is so fun to watch you two make up games and adventures to go on together. You also LOVE to push his buttons, and know just what to do, to send your older brother into a tailspin.  I am so thankful that you two have each other and that you are not only brothers, but friends too.



You are a treat sniffer-outer.  I put the treats up and you will manage to find a way to climb up and get them, without making any noise to alert me to your sneakiness. You also provide comic relief to our house and lives.  Today while we were eating lunch with Nana, you mentioned (rather loudly) that your “butt burped”.  I love that you have a sense of humor that is so developed even at three years old.  You are intuitive and sense the mood of the room, and try to lighten the tough times.


Mercer, you are such a great piece of our family unit. I thank God every day that you are my son, and that I get to watch you grow and change.  I promise you that I will always be in your corner, cheering you on and loving you with my whole heart.  You my sweet son, are such a gift.  I love you sweet boy, and I hope your 3rd year is as wonderful as the past couple have been.
All my love,
