Vito is 3!

Today, Vince posted this photo of Vito covered in Nutella on his Facebook wall. He said:
"They grow up so fast. This guy turns 3 today and already he needs a shave."

Tonight, our three-year-old boy is asleep. Exhausted. He started his third year at 6 in the morning, the first one up as usual. He opened the bedroom door and exclaimed, "Wow!" The house was festooned with party decorations that his Tita Jacqui put up the night before. Vito slowly inspected the house, saying, "Wow!" every now and then. His little brother, Iñigo, followed him around, saying, "Wa!" too!

Vince and I decided that we won't have a party for Vito. Instead, today was Vito's Favorite Things Day. So he had the iPad all morning. Then chocolate cake with a birthday candle, chicken empanada and spaghetti for lunch. Then we all went to Active Fun for unlimited play. Then we had doughnuts. Then he opened his gifts (he yelled, "Ninjago!" as soon as he ripped the wrapper). Then his first friend, Alfonso, dropped by the house to play for an hour. Then he slept at around 6pm, saying, "Fun! Happy!"

Happy birthday, my dearest darling Vito. Thank you for the best three years of our life! We love you beyond comprehension!

  5. Hi Frances! I really admire the way you celebrate your kids’ birthdays, no bongga parties that will rip a huge amount of stash cash earned for months just to please others when in fact the child will barely remember he had that party when he grows up. My son will turn 1 this October and I am planning to celebrate it with familiar faces he sees in his everyday life :) Happy Birthday to Dear Vito and Kisses to Cutie Iñigo! Godbless!
