My youngest (Trey) has a special place in my heart. I know everyone says they can’t imagine their life without each child, but I feel even more so about Trey because I really wanted to be done having kids after my second, who quickly showed me I had no parenting skills. She challenged and stretched me in every way possible and after her toddler years I was ready to throw in the towel. I love my daughter more than anything, but truth be told I didn’t think I could survive another one of those big personalities. Luckily everyone kept saying no two kids are alike and since my first two could not be more different I believed them and I’m glad I did.
The third child has been my favorite so far. Not because I love him more than the others, but because for the first time I wasn't scared of every little cough or cry. I had done this twice before and so I was much more relaxed. (If you are on the fence about having a third, I highly recommend it. You're experienced now, so you can now actually enjoy them.) Between me mellowing as a parent and Trey’s funny personality he has been nothing but joy in our family.
Okay… he is super naughty too, but nothing I haven’t been able to handle (yet). If you follow me on Instagram, then you know he has a serious obsession with pens. Specifically Sharpies. My other kids never colored on the walls or furniture so I’m a newbie here, but it’s enough to cause severe anxiety if I see a sharpie anywhere. We've purged all of them, but somehow he keeps finding a few here and there. I swear he has a stash I don't know about.
So without further ado, here are some pictures from his birthday.

Doesn't it seem like it's always the $12 gifts your kids end up liking the most? This was true with the Bubble Maker we got him. If you have a toddler, save your money and just get this one toy. It's a winner.
