Jack - 3 years old today. So grown up!
Originally uploaded by chiggster My first ickle teenty tiny baby is three years old today. 3... I can't believe it.

And doesn't he look so grown up too.

I think we've done right by him for his birthday. We had a bit of a party for him on sunday. Jen and Kathy came over with their kids, and the two lads from over the road came too. So our little livingroom was packed out!

Jack's tantrums aside, and Tom's bursting in to tears when ever I leave the room.... well that's all par for the course. The good stuff far out weighs the bad.
