So today is Andy's third birthday. He understands that today is his birthday and he's looking for presents around every corner. I sang the birthday song to him first thing when he woke up and a couple times so far today.

We got up this morning and ate breakfast and went right out to the Party Gym to run around.  We went from the gym to Toys R Us where Andy scored some majorly cool Thomas stuff. We got an Imaginarium waterfall bridge set that fits with the Thomas wooden tracks-- it's really cool. Also a new DVD that came with a special anniversary Percy; a tee shirt and some bath toys.  For Joey I got some training sippy cups and a gate for the living room.

We've been home for a little bit.  Andy has watched the DVD twice and is playing with his trains.  We're waiting for Steve to get home to order pizza and maybe go out to Chuck E Cheese's.

I can't believe he's three already.  The differences in him from last year are astounding.  I'm so upset that he's aged out of the early intervention program though because he loved his therapist, Angela, so much.  They had their last session yesterday and she cried. He's talking so much now and I'm so grateful. He's finally consistently calling me mommy and using words instead of tantrums to get what he wants. 

Last night, Steve went up into the attic to look for something and Andy yelled up to him from the bottom of the stairs, "Hey Daddy! What are you doing up there?  Come down!"  It was so sweet.

I'm so proud of him for his speech improvement! I'd love to hear him talk sometime, if you happen to do dropshots on here or something! :)

Oh, and watch out for metal objects falling out of the sky! ;)
