So the little blonde one turned 3 today! And, as you probably know by now, I continued my tradition of making sure I have a little mini shoot with them on their birthdays, in the hope that by the time they both turn 18, mummy will have most awesome artwork to give them as a gift🙂 Mostly we shoot in the studio with balloons for about 5 minutes, but Rogan wanted a few outside…I love his expressions, especially his cute ‘cross face’ LOL.
I hope too, that since I have been so terrible at printing and filing my own family photographs, and totally rubbish at filling in those baby books, that someday they will read through my old blog posts and know that I remembered to do something!!
So. Rogan aged 3. Well he is class!! We completely adore him. He has us all laughing every day at either his antics or the things he comes out with. I cannot hold him in my arms without smothering him in kisses. He is very loving and cuddly, but heaven help you if you try to take away something he is playing with ( as Brody well knows, tread lightly and offer a swap….never snatch from Rogan or you’re likely to get a clout or a high pitched scream!).
Luckily, he just loves his big brother and they seem to enjoy a lot of the same things, like Lightening McQueen, Ninjago, Lego and Star wars, Paw Patrol and Blaze and the Monster machines. But Rogan is very much his own person and what a wee character. He loves music and dancing. We have a LOT of dance parties in our kitchen….
His imaginative play is also hilarious to listen to – I often stand in the doorway listening to him gabble with his toys. He loves books too, just like Brody, for which I am very glad🙂
We celebrated this birthday over the weekend with a special ‘ Mater’ cake made by my friend Helen from The Cakery NI. Today I brought them for a little play after school in Johnny Rockos, sadly the wee man must have caught a bug somewhere along the way and has spent the whole evening being very ill😦😦 Not the greatest finish to his wee birthday, but he is such a wee trooper. Very lucky that both my boys are great little patients.
SO here are a few wee pics to mark the occasion. Hard to believe my baby is 3 already. Time flies and I have learnt to cherish every second of their childhoods, even the tougher moments, because, I know I will blink someday, and they will be 18 and away out into the world. I just hope they both know how incredibly loved they are …….I think they do.
Happy birthday little Rogibear. xxxxx
