happy birthday Rainer!

Rainer turned three over the weekend! We had a little family party for him on Sunday.
{at his birthday breakfast}
{one present was presented in the morning. He had no interest in it and didn't open it!}

{fall and number cookies were made. He was mostly interested in these}
{the birthday table}
{a simple meal of bread and cheese, zucchini soup, and sausages-- his favorites}

Wow, the years are going by so fast with this little guy, and he has certainly made them exciting. I can't believe he is three already. Pretty soon I'm going to have to stop referring to him as "the baby"! Things about Rainer--he is sweet and cuddly, his hair is so soft it feels like fur, he is really into kissing right now, he loves to build things and wants to figure out how things work, he's really into this book just at the moment, he loves to jump on the trampoline and play in the sandbox. He's a boyish boy. Happy birthday, little Rainer!

Happy birthday, dear Rainer! I've so enjoyed watching you grow and turn into an adorable and fascinating little boy through your mom's blog. :) My own youngest little boy turns 3 in just 2 short months, and I truly can't believe it. The cookies and birthday table look just wonderful!

Happy Birthday Rainier! What a cutie, and I still call my almost 9 year old my baby, he just smiles. Love the birthday table and all the 3 cookies. I love simple lunches like that, looks like you had a great day.

The crown he's wearing is really sweet. Did you make it?

Happy birthday Rainer! My son will be 3 in February, and they sound like they would be good buddies.
