That was *almost* three years ago. Three. Really. THREE.
Andrew is a joy. He's so happy and fun. I know I constantly talk about him but he really is so much fun. Parenting is hard, but he makes it a wonderful experience. I know he is going to be a fabulous big brother to either Liberty or JohnDavid (not sure if we are having a boy or girl!) and I'm looking forward to all the times we will have together.
At three years old, I watch my son grow and play and I thank God for His amazing blessings. A healthy child. A happy child. An absolutely hilarious child. We have our moments when we try each other's patience, but those moments are fleeting and pass quickly.
Instead of going on and on about my little boy, I'm starting a new tradition this year. I have heard from several mommy friends that they like to "interview" their children on their birthdays, and have keepsakes for when they are older. Then I was browsing Pinterest and came across this blog with a fabulous idea for the interviews! So, here is Andrew's first interview at age three. I wrote down his replies, with any explanation needed in parenthesis.
