Carter is Three!

Carter turned 3 today. It's amazing how quickly these three years have gone by. Yet, at the same time, I can't imagine life without him. As you can see, Carter got a train table and train set for his birthday. He pretty much bounced from one end of the house to the other while Daddy assembled the whole thing. Juliane, our neighbor and babysitter, came over. She gave him the Lightning McQueen pillow. It was just a quiet celebration. In lieu of a birthday cake, I put candles in some homemade banana bread...and then spread Nutella all over it.
Today at school Carter got to wear a crown during circle time and he got to choose all the songs they sang. The school doesn't let us bring in cupcakes or cookies for birthdays (as they contain sugar! ah..the horror), so we brought in cheese sticks and fruit kabobs.
The big party will be this Saturday. During the celebration we'll be packing up all of Carter's pacifiers into a box and "sending" them off to little boys and girls who still need them. So far he seems OK with the idea...we'll see how it actually pans out on Saturday night when he tries to go to bed without one. I'm actually quite worried that he might give up naps if he doesn't get a paci.
