Happy Birthday, Keandre!
We cannot believe you are already three! It is amazing to think of all you went through in your first 2+ years, and the healing we have seen in you in such a short time. Your doctor thinks you are a little miracle! Now that we have your reflux, asthma, food allergies, and eczema mostly under control, no one would guess how much you struggled to get to where you are. :)
We love you sweet boy, and are delighted with the way you are growing up. You are so friendly, creative, and cuddly. You adore babies, and love to keep them entertained. And you work so hard to keep up with the big kids when you are all out front playing. We are so thankful God brought you our way, and cannot imagine our lives without you. We pray often that you will continue to grow up healthy and strong, and will someday want to serve Him with all your heart.
Some friends and cousins who came to your 'out front' party.
Helping Daddy grill up some hot dogs.
The bikes, trikes, and wagons kept on a-rollin',
with hardly a pause to eat.
Until it was time for 'happy cake', that is!
(Daddy made allergy-free cupcakes. Hooray!
You requested suckers on top, and they were a hit!)
Wait......how many fingers?
We can't wait to see what the next year holds for you, Keandre. We love you!
~Mommy & Daddy
ps - A funny little story I want to remember.....
The day we had your party was my actual birthday. You were quite confused by this, and became concerned every time someone wished me a happy birthday. You were quick to remind them, "It's my 'happy party'." Of course, just minutes after your friends and cousins went home, you were the most enthusiastic singer when your brother and sister gave me a gift and sang to me. You had finally had your 'happy party' and you were ready to share the day with Mommy after all! :)
