My little man is 3!

I can't believe its been 3 years since my son was born, it seems to have passed so quickly! The strangest thing is that as soon as I had Elijah, Josiah seemed to grow about 4 inches instantly! He has been really good with his little brother the last 6 weeks and very understanding when I have had to make him wait for my attention, something he hasn't had to do before. As I haven't been feeling very well we hadn't organised a party for him, and I didn't even make him a cake, but the week after Elijah was born I did spend a number of hours making him an A2 size card to send into the BBCs childrens channel for the birthday slot.

 I printed off black and white colouring pages from here and coloured them in with my promarkers, cut out all the images and some seaweed, and even adapted the Octonauts logo for his name. You can imagine how disappointed I was that they didn't show it (they only show about 1/2 of the cards they get sent). Its also pretty annoying that it cost me a fortune in postage to send it!
The pirate outfit he is wearing in the picture he wore to go to the cinemas yesterday morning to watch The Pirates in an Adventure with Scientists, which was excellent!
I only managed to make him a hastily made birthday cake, which is just a sponge with raspberry jam and buttercream filling. I have decided that as I'm feeling alot better this week that we might plan a small party for him in a couple of weeks time when alot of our friends are back from holiday, so I will be attempting a more impressive cake for then!
