Ford's Birthday List

Ford turned 3 last week and is having a blast with all of his new birthday goodies! I felt extra excited for his birthday this year because it was the first time that he knew what was happening. He knew he was another year older, he knew we were going to celebrate, etc. His 1st and 2nd birthdays were fun nonetheless but he totally had no clue what was going on. All of the sudden Ford's imagination is growing and he is all about pretend play. He has showed interest in dressing up when we are at friend's houses and he loves doing things that grown ups do. Because he's had a blast with his gifts, I wanted to share some ideas because a few months ago I was at a loss for what to get him. He got gifts from us, family, and a few friends. Lucy is loving Ford's birthday too, she gets to play with all of his toys!

Theo Klein Service Car Station- Jon found this kids mechanics car probably a year ago online and has been waiting to get it for Ford. To say Ford loves it is an understatement! Every morning he comes down and says "Okay I am going to work on my car, the XYZ is broken". Jon is in heaven. And Lucy loves it too! It also has a little spot to store matchbox cars and a ramp for racing them. Seriously hours of entertainment. My mom let us borrow a giant box of my brother's matchbox cars and they are loving them (Lucy has been sleeping with 2 orange cars every night). Ford has such an engineer's brain but this would be such a fun gift for any little boy (or girl!).

Melissa and Doug Chef Costume- Ford had this costume on at a play gym we go to a couple of weeks ago and it just killed me. It was adorable. He has loved playing in his play kitchen upstairs since he was 1 year old and now loves to play restaurant, grocery store, and waiter. 

Melissa and Doug Police Officer Costume- if you know anything about Ford, you'd know he is a rule follower (I am totally not complaining!). My sister got him this police costume and he loves it! He tells me he has to go write tickets when people are bad or not following the rules... which is what he does with Lucy all the time. 

Perfection Game- my mom has the original Perfection game at her house and Ford loves playing with it! It gets him every time. One of his besties got him the newer, mini version and it is perfect for him! He loves board games. 

Little Critter Books- my mom saved all of the books I read growing up and gave them to me when I had Ford. We have two pretty worn out Little Critter books that are his favorite, along with a Little Critter stuffed animal he sleeps with every night. I love how the books always have a little lesson or feel good story so I picked up about 8 from Half Price Books for $1.99 each. 

Cootie Game- Ford and his cousin Embry love playing Cootie at my parents house and at the lakehouse, it keeps them busy for hours. He was so excited to get his own set from his Uncle James. 

Doctor Kit- to go along with the pretend play, Ford got a new doctor's kit from his great Gram and Papa. He has always loved a random toy stethoscope we have and when he brought it to Lucy's well check a few weeks ago, I thought a new doctor kit would be perfect. 

Some other things he got and loves are: a big box of dinosaurs that I got off of a garage sale site, a velcro catch ball set, a bubble gun, a water rocket, and a couple of crafty things (stickers, etc). It was a fun birthday for Ford!

Those all look like great items for a 3 year old! I am sure that he will appreciate any gifts or any events that you do for him for his bday.

Our boys are a tad bit older than you (27 & 28) and I used to read the critter books to them.

My husband is not commenting; I failed to tell you this earlier. Brenda Walker is commenting and I'm his wife.

Just thought you should know........Brenda

My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
