look who is 3!

Eyasu celebrated his 3rd birthday this weekend. So much fun to see it all through his eyes. He was super giddy and didn't have a clue what all of the fuss was about though. He would clap his hands, smile and say "happy birthday!!"

We went with grandparents and cousins last night to eat Ethiopian food. He was basically holding court. You are going to have to use your imagination here as my camera picked a terrible time to break. :( He was wearing his traditional Ethiopian outfit (shown here with his special mama) and looked precious.

We had one looooong table and he was at one end of the table. He stood in his chair so he could have better access to all of the food before him. He had the biggest grin on his face the whole time and would occassionally say "injera, Yummy, YUMMY!!" I could have eaten him in my injera for sure!

I'm so sad to not have pictures from the night. We loved celebrating our sweet boy.

Maybe Santa will bring me a new camera this year??

Dang, you may get some negative comment on wanting a camera...i mean how materialistic ;)
I so can't wait to see you again friend! Seth of course, needed a "beep beep". What a perfect gift for him. :) I bet you have to drag him out of that jeep. Happy 3rd bday little guy! Tell the boys I want to see them when I'm down for Christmas-I missed them last time.
--Oh, and still no luck on the bottle thing...but I did inform B of what Moody did for you with Ave. :)

PS-Dr M- You have to get her a camera! I know a good one...we love to see pics of your kiddos ;)

When is his birthday? He and Silas must be pretty darn close to the same day! SUPER CUTE babe of course! Silas LOVES his Injera too. Let me know if I need to write M a little note about you needing a camera like I did for someone else. ;) Happy Birthday sweet Seth!
