Happy 3rd Birthday Charlie!

Ready for PRESENTS!!

The expensive, cruddy playset...

He was so excited when he opened the train from Aunt Julie!

The boys played a long time with all the new train accessories...

Will and Charlie went out for a while to play "experiments" together...

Nothing is more fun that 50 cents worth of baking soda, vinegar, and some food coloring!

It's a T- Rex!

Charlie's birthday started off with a bagel from Panera and a trip to the Pediatrician.  Jason always wants to be there for the well child visits and he took the day off so I went ahead and had the well child on his birthday.  I was 99% certain there would be no shots, so I didn't feel too mean.  He was such a good boy at the Dr's office!  He is pretty much on track with everything except the speech, but we are already working on that, and he seems to be catching up FAST!  ( : 
His 3 year old stats:  Height: 38 1/2in  Weight: 34lbs
      2 year old stats:  Height 36.3in  Weight: 28lbs 2oz
I was stunned to see how much weight he had gained!  He still seems so skinny!  He is a good eater, better than William has ever been.
After the Dr's office we went and picked up balloons and meat for BBQ later.  Then it was finally home for presents!   Charlie got lots of fun Thomas stuff, but sadly, the biggest thing we got him was a dud.  We got a King of the Railway Castle set, and recently Fisher Price bought Thomas and it has gone down hill BIG TIME!  The quality was terrible. It was just cheap pressed board and ended up chipping immediately. (It was $100!!!)  We are going to return it and get him something else.  He was so disappointed, but even he was upset when it broke.  He totally seemed to understand that the quality was less than great.  He ended up with lots of other fun goodies though, and will now get a couple more things in the mail.  Charlie had requested a T-Rex cake so I was able to come up with something cute.  He loved it.  All in all it was a quiet, lovely day.  I can't believe how quickly 3 years has gone, and at the same time, it seems like he has always been here.  It's such fun to see him growing up!
