Three...

It's strange to think of Johnny so grown up so soon. I feel a little sad for all that we're moving away from. Chubby arms locked around my neck, little voice calling 'me neeeed roo mamma', the giggling and wiggling when I pretend to eat him up. It passes too quickly.
Happy Birthday baby boy. Some malteaser cake should cheer us all up - that and your party on Thursday.

Happy birthday, little man!

Hope he has a great day and party. That malteser cake should do the job!

I'm with you all the way with those feelings - want them to get more independent to free up time for mummy but grieving for the passing of those baby days!

Lisa said...

Yummy looking cake!

You are so right when you say that time passes all too quickly! My "baby" celebrated his 18th this past December and it seems that only yesterday he was only a toddler and I was his whole world. Enjoy these days while you can!

Amazing, my Isabel was three on Sunday aswell. You are right that the time goes so quickly. I can hardly believe she is so old and so very growed up these days. Your cake looks much more appetising than mine. We had to have a rabbit theme so I made a teletubby grassy knoll with lots of rabbit running about all over. Green icing just isn't as appealing as chocolate for grown ups but the party goers really enjoyed all of their slices. Good luck for Thursday.

Happy birthday Johnny. If only we could hold on to those precious first years of childhood - they do grow up too fast. Hope he has a great party on Thursday. Great cake!

Happy Day little guy ("No, BIG guy!", Z says, in the background :-) Our three yr old boys are so yummy.

Now I'm already planning next years cake. We should really get these boys together.

Z hasn't been to your side of the pond... yet :-)

Happy belated Birthday to Johnny. Raj was seven on Friday and like you I can't believe my youngest is growing up so quickly.

What a cutie! Happy late birthday. I didn't realize he and Keith are only days apart in age (K. was born on the 12th).

Also--I have to apologize. I was updating my sidebar and only just realized that all this time I'd never linked to you. What an airhead I am!!!
