*Happy 3rd Birthday Dude!

(I stole this sweet slideshow from my brother Phylip's blog that he made for Day on his bday. Thanks Bro!)

I can't believe my baby is 3!

Daylan went through a messy face stage...

(here displayed is sand, cake and pudding)

*Oh my little Daylan boy. I can't believe my baby is 3! The years just keep going faster and faster. 3 years ago this morning my little Dude, Daylan Curtis Campbell was born. He was anxiously awaited by his brother and sister. Everything went perfectly this time and this was my 1st and much needed perfect delivery story. He has been such a joy and has given us many smiles & laughs along the way.

*Some things we LOVE about our Dude!*

*Daylan is a snuggler. There is nothing better than at the end of the day when Day will just snuggle with us and say "Dad let's play tittle (tickle) on the bat (back)" or when he kisses me and says "Mom, I love you too much!" He likes to play with my hair as you can see in this video below. (I had just gotten out of the shower, so I'm all gross but I wanted to show how sweet he is at night before bed.)

*Dude is in a stage where he loves
puzzles and is really very good at them. Him and I have done this huge animal puzzle hundreds of times! He also is potty training now and it seems like when we're going to be at home for the whole day, we'll just keep him like this in his underwear. He loves that feeling of being free! I thought this photo displayed both well.

*He definitely inherited the "Campbell pout." Although I don't love his tantrums & temper, I do love that he tries to stay mad even when he doesn't want to. You can't help but laugh when you see it which in turn just makes him more mad. He will usually respond "Mom, stop lapping!!"(laughing)

*Daylan always will stick up for his brother and sister. He will ALWAYS take their side with anything and let me or anyone else know why they are the ones who are right! He thinks the world of spencer & kaylea.

*Daylan has a love of learning. He learns new things quickly whether it be sports, ABC, colors, numbers. He tries to keep up with bro and sis.

*When he was a baby he had the baldest head, chubbiest cheeks and biggest smile as you can see in this picture. One of my favorite quotes is: "I always dreamed of falling in love with tall, dark and handsome; yet ended up falling in love with short, chubby and bald." That definitely fits with this little guy.

*Happy 3rd Birthday Day-Day!*

I can't believe he's 3 either! He's so cute. 3 must be a charm, sounds just like my bossy, a snuggler, can't stay mad, and everyone loves the guy! Um, and that baby carson a few posts down is adorable! AANNNDD, I love your depression day dialoge! I've had a depression month. Hopefully it's getting fixed though. So, are we going to see you next Friday night for the PL reunioN?????

Wow! June is birthday month for you guys! I always love reading your birthday tributes! You are such a great mom (and sis I guess in Phylip's case). Your boys are the cutest and they are so lucky to have such a wonderful mommy. Are you guys going out of town any time soon? Maybe we can get together for a play date next week?
