Andrew turns 3!

I’m sure every parent says this, but it’s sure hard to believe that it’s been 3 years since Andrew arrived into our lives. And what a whirlwind it has been! On Saturday, we celebrated his birthday at home with family & friends.

My birthday present to Andrew this year focused on one of his seemingly strong interests: playing the guitar. (It’s in third place behind digging in sand and playing with trucks, but he’s got plenty of both of those already!) I’ve noodled around on my acoustic guitar ever since Andrew was born, and he and Justin really seem to enjoy it – and love sitting on my lap and playing mine when I have it out. Andrew has also developed a deep obsession / infatuation with John Mayer and insists that we listen to it every time we’re in the car (he knows we have the CD in the changer.) He always says “I want to play ‘lectric guitar like John Mayer!” Justin has picked this up to, and now as soon as he’s in the car seat starts changing “John Mayuh ON! John Mayuh ON!” In any case, here’s our new virtuoso trying out his new 1/4-size guitar!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a birthday without some sort of equipment for the outdoors. Given that he’s already got a mower, trimmer, blower, and countless others, what was left? Oh yes, leave it to grandma & grandpa – a chainsaw! Now he wants to cut down all our trees. Good thing it’s plastic!

After all the excitement, it was time to cool down – it’s been roasting here lately, perfect weather for some sprinkler fun!

Happy birthday, Andrew!
