It’s actually on Tuesday, but we celebrated today with a couple families and Nana and Papa. Matty was so excited. He helped me make the rocket ship decorations and bake the cupcakes. We set the table together. We ordered pizza and let the kids run around. It was a stress-free celebration.

We also said good-bye to his pacifer today. This is a sad time, but at some point, we have to make the break. We have explained that big boys don’t need pacifiers anymore. Instead they get to go to bed with a flashlight. We got him a really cool flashlight for his birthday. Growing up so good and so hard!!

Happy (early) birthday sweet guy!!
