james' birthday

Before I start this series on James' transformation, I realized I didn't post about his birthday.

It was such a special celebration of and for him.

We couldn't resist going the Elmo route with our celebration.  Boy has Sesame Street and Elmo tapped the market on three-year-olds!  It seems it doesn't matter your background or geographic location -- if you're three and have been introduced to the lovable, red monster, then you are instantly a fan.  And James is no exception.  He loves him some Elmo.

Here are some photos and video.

This one's during dinner on his actual birthday.  No where have I seen better beatboxers-in-the-making.

After-dinner cupcakes from the Fresh Market.  Those things are monstrous.

Many of you who know James in-person know that he literally trembles and shakes (and sweats!) when he's super-excited about something.  It's one of the most hilarious and precious things about him, but it's hard to capture.  I don't know if you can see him doing it in this video, but he's shaking away!

Did you see James singing along?  We've celebrated Avery's and JD's birthdays since James has been home and he clearly wants to sing the song -- and kind of knows it!  So cute.

Then onto his 'more official' celebration on Saturday.

It's pretty clear that James doesn't know what a birthday is, but he knew this was his.  He was one happy dude on Saturday.  He's just such a social little guy.  Being surrounded by all the people he loves was special to him.  Honestly.  You could just tell.

















It was our honor and privilege to celebrate James' 3rd birthday with him.  

We don't know if it's the first birthday he's celebrated, but it certainly won't be the last.
