three is a magic number

It's been a big week around here. Aside from working like mad on custom orders and trying to fit in some readymade stuff for the holidays (shop update hopefully on Wednesday though it may have to wait until we return from our holiday travels) this past Wednesday was a very special day for us.Lyric by the fire just after being born

Lyric, my sweet baby boy, turned three. It doesn't seem possible that it was a whole three years ago that he joined our little family, and yet it feels like he's always been here. He brings so much joy and humor (and singing and dancing and jedi-mastering) into our lives, he's so awesome.

And now he's officially a "big kid"--he also started at the Free School on Wednesday! Of course, he's been spending lots of time there his whole life so he had no reservations about being there on his own. I'm a little sad that my little one is growing up so fast but mostly I feel as if we've entered a new era full of possibilities. I will actually have time to work now!
it's hard to go from holding up two fingers to holding up three

Here are some pictures of the birthday boy throughout the week, including at his swashbuckling pirate party:

  1. Bru says "Pretty good pictures, Miss Vicki. Good job!" They're great. Did the King and Melissa make it for the party? Looks like a lot of work went into the invitations and boat, etc. See you all soon. Love, Nana

  2. Happy birthday, Lyric! What a fantastic birthday party (and invite!)... I'm already taking notes for Gabriel's future birthday parties. You are an amazing mom. I have so much to learn!

  3. I remember that first picture like it was yesterday! Happy Birthday Little Man Lyric!
