Yesterday Warren turned 3 years old. I'm having a really hard time believing it's already/only been three years. I know, every parent says this, but I really can't believe that my tiny (or not so tiny) baby is a fully functional kid. At the same time, I feel like he's been with us forever.

Warren is such a funny little person. He will go to ridiculous lengths to get a laugh, from me, from Xtian, Lennox... pretty much anyone. He makes you work hard to get his affection, but once you have it, he is 100% devoted to you. It's really refreshing to spend time with someone who hasn't been battered into reigning in his enthusiasm. He still throws himself at you to get a hug. He's so excited when he succeeds at something he visibly shakes until he can hug or high five someone.

Warren is completely obsessed with Lennox. They cuddle and hug each other constantly. If Lennox falls asleep in the car, Warren scolds us for speaking too loudly. "Don't bother Lennox," he stage whispers. "He's sleeping!" And it makes me laugh out loud every single time. That protective side of him is so sweet and reminds me why people have multiple children.

I could write adoration and love for Warren for days on end. But there's only so much time in the day. Instead, bask in how far he's come:
Warren: 4 days old.

Warren: 3 years old.
