3 years ago...
The above picture was taken 3 years ago right before we headed to the hospital to have our sweet Aiden!  I remember being pregnant and thinking about what the future was going to be like once our little boy arrived.  I specifically remember trying to picture him as a little boy, running and playing!  I wondered what his voice would sound like and how he would adapt to the constant change in our life!  When I first heard his little cry, I don't think I have ever smiled so big and cried so hard all at the same time!!!  Seeing him and holding him for the first time, I THOUGHT he was the greatest gift that I could have ever received and boy was I right!  I don't think that my heart and soul were prepared for the feelings that I have for my boy!  

Tomorrow, September 1st, our precious boy turns 3!  Although I am beyond proud of the little boy he has become, I am also a little sad!  Where has the time gone?  Really???  Every year (so what if he is only 2) Leif and I wake up at his exact birth time, 2:35 a.m., and we sing him Happy Birthday!  He is asleep and could probably care less but it is a fun little tradition that we started and I really enjoy it!  The next 2 years will be hard.  Leif has duty tonight and will miss our little celebration and next year he will be deployed!  These past 3 years have been so magical that I just hate for him to miss anything but, trust me, with the amount of pictures I take, Leif will be thoroughly updated!  Despite what is to come, this weekend (and next weekend too) we will celebrate the first 3 years of our precious boys life!

Every night before Leif and I go to bed, we end our night by saying something about Aiden.  It usually goes something like "Aiden is so cute when he..."  It isn't intentional but it just happens!  We know we are blessed and we do not hesitate to say it!  I feel like the past 3 years have flown by...but boy have we crammed in a lot of fun!  More on that in Aiden's special birthday post...HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY SWEET BOY!!!
