Today we celebrated Will's third birthday. His parents shared photos and really wonderful funny stories. Just before Will was due to arrive three years ago, a big snow storm was coming--the forecast called for a foot of snow! Will's parents were really excited but also nervous because Will's grandparents were planning to drive down to Washington and they needed to adjust their plans due to the coming weather. Will's dad explained, "We were expecting Will, and we were expecting a snow storm." Will's grandparents decided to come early so they would arrive before the storm. It turned out the snow storm didn't come and neither did Will--at least not while they were in town. He made his appearance a couple of days after they went home, so they hurried back. . In addition to the photos of Will in his mom's belly, of Will as a newborn in the hospital wearing a funny hat, and Will with his big brother Max (who was three years old when Will came along), Will's family showed a great video from his third birthday party at home, including lots of his Brown Room friends dancing up a storm. That was then, This is now.
After Will circled the candle three times, we sang Happy Birthday, and he blew out his candle, Will received his card from his Brown Room friends. Will's card was really funny and fun to make--and he got to play a role in helping to create it. It was fun to tell the story behind the card, which featured photos of Will on an airplane with some of his favorite toys. Kian also gave Will a special gift he knew Will would like--trains from the middle room, which he spent lots of time carefully wrapping. Thanks to Will's family for celebrating with us, and
Happy Third Birthday, Will!
