Jack is 3 Years Old - Airplane Birthday Party

At 3:35am on December 26, 2013, our little guy Jack turned 3 years old!
 Weight at 3 years: 30 lbs (32 percentile)
Height at 3 years: 35.25 inches (7 percentile)
 He has been practicing saying "3 years old" and holding up 3 fingers.  Looks like he's got it!
3 year update on Jack: Jack is too much fun!  He loves to talk. We are at the point to where we can actually have conversations and understand most of what he says.  He loves to sing, dance, read books, "preach" with his bible, play with play dough, be tickled, brush his teeth, watch "monster cookies" (sesame street) and Daniel Tiger, loves airplanes and trains, loves being outside, and eating snacks. His favorite foods are pizza, chicken nuggets, carrots and ranch dip, edamame, apples (without the skin), hamburger and fries, chocolate milk and most importantly DESSERT! Jack sleeps great at night and still takes a long nap each day (about 3 hours.) He loves to be close to mom and dad.  If one of us is ever away he says, "mommy daddy come back" i guess just reassuring himself that we will come back. Jack still sleeps in his crib.  Climbing out has never really been an issue for him so we never changed him over to a big boy bed.  Looks like we may just need to switch him over, otherwise he may never get out of that crib.  He is doing fairly well with potty training.  He does great at home while wearing just underwear.  But oddly enough once you put pants on him he tends to forget he has to go potty.  So once we get past this stage I think we will be doing great!  Its just kind of difficult to go out places now with undies on him since you pretty much need to wear pants out in public. Ha!
On Jack's birthday we stayed home and played with all the new toys from his birthday and Christmas.
Planes toy
 ABC puzzle
Fishing game
The evening of his birthday we had his 3rd birthday party - airplane style.  In my mind it was going to be a smaller party with just family and a couple friends. Wrong! It was just with family and a couple friends but our house was still packed out with like 50 people!  We may need to start considering parties outside the home (or get a much bigger home which isn't an option I'm up for.)

The re-fueling station = pulled pork sandwiches, chips, ranch style beans, veggie tray & applesauce
Jet Fuel = coffee

Baggage Check-in = coats and purses in our room.
The craft was decorate an airplane (made out of a clothespin & popsicle sticks)

 This boy is ready for his birthday party!
 Let the party begin!
 All 4 grandparents, many Aunts & Uncles, Cousins, and Friends were there.  It was so special having so many people there to celebrate!

Daddy and the birthday boy!
 Jack's favorite part - CAKE
 Happy Birthday to you....
 The kids played "pin the propeller on the airplane"
The party was a big success!  Not sure when my baby boy turned into a big 3 year old.  But I am loving this age so far.  He makes me laugh each day.  So thankful for our precious Jack and look forward to all that the Lord has in store for him!
