Today, Gunner is three years old! To say this spitfire keeps me on my toes is an understatement. Gunner is cheeky, brave, smart, energetic, adventurous and all boy. He absolutely lives to play outside, explore and "work". Tractors, trucks and dirt are his favorite toys. He has such a great laugh, warm heart and is quickly becoming a wonderful older brother. Recently, I overheard him playing with his dad and almost melted when he exclaimed things like, "Good job, Dad!" and "Wow! That's awesome!" It's amazing how much he's grown even in the last few weeks. There is such truth to the new term "threenager." Time flies.
Here I'm taking a walk down memory lane and sharing some of my favorite moments, the ones that truly capture his essence.
Dear Gunner: Happy birthday, sweet boy. I love you forever. I'm so glad I get to be your mama.
"Promise me you'll always remember: you're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you." - Christopher Robin to Pooh
