John Shea Turns Three!

Friday, September 9, 2016


It's hard to imagine a little person more sweet, tender, open-hearted, affectionate or loving as John Shea. I have loved every single milestone and age of his - he is the most radiant and joyful soul we know and he only becomes more so each year. He LOVES having anyone and everyone over to the house so he's going to be really excited tomorrow at his pool party with a few of his favorite little kids (and their families) in Zagreb!

Happy Third Birthday to our darling John Shea, who is never without bear hugs, kisses, huge smiles and a total excitement to see us, even if it's only been moments since we were together. We all love you more than words could ever say!!


His look when we put him in our bed, snuggled under the covers and he saw Daddy walk in with his birthday-breakfast-in-bed tray. His favorite-- chocolate chip waffles (our Saturday morning tradition!) with scrambled eggs.


Seeing the living room covered in balloons and his presents in the middle!


We brought his cake next door to our neighbors' house so they could be part of his birthday!


Chasing Rex through the vineyard and he got to stay in his jammies all the way until bath time. He didn't stop smiling or giggling all day!
