The little viking turns three !

Oh my little pirate.. getting so big.. as he said today.. " Mummy I never , no more 2.. no no.. only ever 3 now" .. with big wide earnest eyes.. as the auspicious occasion registered upon him.. aww so sweet!
Life's tough at this age.. like yesterday.. he was so sad.. he lost a friend forever.. he came in so excited as he had found a caterpillar..
" Mummy look my new friend.. he a green one.. we be careful, we don't squeeze.. no no! "
He happily went off to play with his 'friend' .. coming in so sad 10 mins later.. " Oh Mummy my friend is gone!! He fell off the motorbike,, I miss him so much all these days!!!" hehe.. such a looong friendship .( all of 10 mins!) Funny little man... ( don't worry,he was sitting on big brothers 4 wheeler bike, he doesn't ride it .. but by golly he wants to!)

The world would surely stop turning if we didn't have a spiderman cake so here it is in all it's glory..
"yay Spidey!

The 'man of the moment' wee Zackary -- 'who will never no more be 2'

( this was the only photo I could get of him standing still.. that wasn't blurry.. excited is an under- statement!!)

I found a pic of last year.. when Zackary was ' never no more be 1'

Growing up little one ! :)


  1. OH MY GOODNESS!!! My heart is overjoyed. I imagine him talking to you and you ever so sweet and tender responding to him with so much love. AAAAAAWWWWWW!!!

    I am sooooo happy for you!

    Aaaaw, his friend gone. Very delicate and very fragile. What lessons he is learning and more to come.

    Those curls! Those CURLZZZZ. I love them. Oh Helen I am talking so excitedly but I have been through this and I loved every moment. They comfort me and warm my heart, soothe my soul.

    Boys are as fragile as girls and society is so anti-boy with all of the labels and catgeorizations. Boys are wonderful. They are loving, passionate, tender, fiercely loyal, protective and most adorable. I can see Zachary growing up into a wonderful boy and man just because of that one very important thing, a loving family for refuge and a mother who is most beautiful, artistic and gentle.

    A Happy Birthday to the Little Viking. Vikings are actually gentle people.

  2. hehe thanks Ces.. yes he is an adorable little man.. he is always making us laugh.. ( well of course we can't show him we are laughing ..or we will get into trouble!) hehe
    I am seeing how long I'll get away with those ringlets.. he insists his hair is STRAIGHT!! ..
    thanks for your lovely ,warm thoughts..

  3. He is such a doll. Everyday must feel like a new sort of adventure around there with little Z! Happy birthday to him!

  4. Ah, boys are so adorable aren't they?! My son turned 3 last March and he was telling everyone he met that he's "thwee" while holding up two fingers! Well, it lasted for about a week... It was so funny to see his smug expression. Hahaha... A big kiss for Zachary from Auntie Lia, please! (^_^) oxoxo

    Happy Birthday to Z!!! Precious little Viking...


    Love Sparrow with crown...sigh!

  6. I am MELTING!!! Oh my goodness, what an incredible cutie. Hahahahaha! I can hear his wee little Viking voice, lamenting the loss of his dear green friend. He is a wise one, Helen. Nope, he will never, no more be 2, ever ever again. Awwww. But now he is spectacular 3, and I hope he makes the best of every single second of it. He's grown up so much in one year alone. Gosh, I wish I had his hair. Look how bright and wide his eyes are! He MUST have been excited. Yay to Vikings!!!

    By the way, did you see this Spidey cake? Brace yourself.
