Happy Birthday Sean
Sean’s entire three years on this planet have been documented via Facebook and WordPress. Go ahead, crown me Mother of the Year. Within moments of his birth, his picture (which included me looking like I’d been drug outside, beaten, run through the mud, and put up wet) was on Facebook.
The polar opposite of his brother, Sean keeps me on my toes. He looks at the world and comprehends more than I think a toddler should. A prankster at heart, he likes to make people (especially himself) laugh. And there is no greater joy for him than antagonizing the hell out of his big brother.
I admit that I pay more attention to his development and growth than I did to Aidan’s. Does it count that I took a few hundred more pictures of Aidan? Probably not.
Sean knows his letters, his colors, and his shapes (including octagon, y’all!). He knows his friends’ names and who he would prefer not to have to hang out with. He is naturally shy with new people and dogeys (aka dogs), but once he loves you, he loves you with his whole heart.
Happy birthday, Sean. I hope one day you appreciate that your brother is the one I practiced on first.
