Bright star

Marco received a special gift from Mom & Dad for Christmas – an acoustic guitar! His face lit up when he unwrapped the oddly shaped box and saw the instrument inside.

A few days after Christmas, Grandma Lori, Grandpa Keith and his aunts Mandy, Hayley and Maddie were treated to a performance!

NOW IN 3D!

Today Marco Amadeus is 3 years old.

Marco weighs 35.2 lbs (80th percentile) and is 39 1/4″ tall (90th percentile)

He spells his name constantly “M-A-R-C-O!”, and has successfully written his name several times.

Favorite book: Chu’s Day by Neil Gaiman (that’s my boy!)

He drew his first ‘smiley’ face in his friend’s birthday card:

Favorite music: The Decemberists

Counts to 40 before he stumbles a bit. Knows the alphabet backwards and forwards. Starting to recognize numbers and letters when he sees them in random places.

Marco has been potty trained since December of 2012 – and has had a total of three accidents (two of which occured during the 2-day training).

Fashion choices: sunglasses, Toms, capes, and nail polish on his toenails

I wish we could freeze this moment in time for just a little while.
