Cash turns 3!

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
Our sweet man Cash turned three years old on June 12th.

 It's hard to believe that the tiny, sleepy little baby on the left is the same boy as our spunky, funny, full of life Cash.  He has grown and matured so much in the past few months - his speech has exploded and he is completely conversing with us like a normal person every day.  He is making great progress on potty training and I feel like we are starting to finally see the end of the long, dark tunnel that is potty training a little boy.  Finally, he is really doing a great job being a big brother to Austin - he is caring and helpful and wants to play with him and keep him entertained and even likes to help feed him.  I can already see what a great friend and confidante he will be to him as they grow up together.

This was the first year we had a real big birthday party for him.  We invited his entire class from day care (16 kids total) and then about 10 other friends from church and otherwise.  We ended up with about 15 friends and their parents along with Old Grandad, Beep Beep Baba and Cousin Mary Kate, all at Old McFaye's Farm in Castle Hayne.  They got to chase around chickens, rabbits and a peacock, go on a hay ride and a pony ride, and feed an enormous pig.  They also got to climb up and slide down an enormous pile of goat manure but that wasn't advertised in the brochure.

Cash had the time of his life, especially chasing the chickens.  We ended with a giant chocolate chip cookie cake with M&Ms and Cash gobbled it up and then went back to running his heart out around the farm.

Cash, you are the best little boy a mommy and daddy could ask for.  We could not be more proud of you and love watching you grow up.  We love you!
