Today I get to be part of the celebration of Marshall's 3rd birthday - a first for me. He's still asleep, but I want to do all I can to make this a fun day for him.
I flew out here to Seattle on Thursday, and since arriving here, Marshall and I have had fun playing together, looking at pictures — he loves looking at photos of his cousins on the computer, on their mommy or daddy's blogs or on their facebook albums. He enjoyed seeing Josiah, Annika, Will, Aurelia and Felix in their Halloween costumes! We've gone shopping once — last night, to let him choose his birthday and Christmas gifts — and that was really fun. He was so easy to please.
I am seeing how he interacts with his mommy and daddy, and even the neighbor kids, whom Chad babysat last night — two year old twins! Brian, the Golden Retriever, tolerates Marshall, but Heidi says Brian is jealous of him.
Heidi and Chad have a big party planned for later today. I'm sure looking forward to it!
Happy Birthday, Marshall!
