Happy Birthday


Gusford just turned 3!  I can hardly believe it.  He is the sweetest child who truly lives up to his name.  In lieu of a party this time, I wanted to have as many enjoyable experiences with family and friends as possible.  So there were dinners, doughnuts, superheroes, and a trip to the farm spread out over the whole month of October.

He’s my mechanically minded child, who loves to figure out how things work.  He takes after Daniel’s father in the face, especially if he’s wearing a fake mustache.  He’s recently developed a bad habit of getting into bed with us at just about any hour of the night, most recently throwing his arm around my neck around 4 AM and whispering in my ear ever so softly, “chugga chugga chugga… woo woo…”

He’s super tall, considered in the 95th percentile, and 80th in weight.  Which hasn’t changed much from his baby and toddler year measurements.  He’s a gentle giant though, with lots of hugs and kisses for family and sometimes friends.  He’s a very discerning child.  There is no gray area or middle ground with him.  He loves his sister and brother and is such a good brother to them.  He’s starting to really appreciate Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, Iron Man, and Captain America.

We love you, Gus!
