Happy Birthday, Marshall!
Today is Marshall's first day being 3 years old. I have been inspired by Kim at In A Shoe to write 3 things you need to know about Marshall.
1. He is the only one in the family who has an official nickname. It is "Moose"! When he was two weeks old he gained 2 lbs and 2 inches. Our midwife said, "He's just a little moose." Well it stuck. We have been calling him "moose" ever since. Although he also is called "marshmellow" by some girls at church (and sometimes his brothers), also "Marshamal" or "Marshamal Moose" and I call him "Marshy" quite often. Because of this nickname he has many different sizes of moose stuffed animals and beanies.
2. He LOVES Thomas and Friends and I do mean LOVE Thomas! He can name all the different characters just by seeing a picture of them. He loves the movies, books, engines toys, everything. He has a shirt with Thomas and this is a chore to take away from him to wash. He would wear it all day every day if he could.
3. He is very strong! He can fall and hit his head and get up and run around like nothing happened while a huge bump forms on his head. He had to have stitches on his tongue after bitting it. He was more upset and screamed more about being held down to have the stitches put in than he was about the gash in his tongue.
Happy Birthday, Marshall! You are the best Marshall I have ever had! Love Ya, Moose!
