She's 3!

March 30, 2009 at 6:24 p.m. you arrived in a little body that was 7 lb. 9 oz. and 19 inches long.
First contact
We could not imagine life without you.
Our first family (of four) photo
You are 3 today. How did that happen? You are my baby but you are not a baby anymore. You are such a big girl with a flare for independence and drama. We will never have to question how you are feeling because you wear your emotions on your shirt sleeve.
Fancy Pants!
You are our own personal tour guide as we drive around town, pointing out the important places like IU, the "toffee" place (Starbucks), "tinderdarden" (Peanut's kindergarten), "my lip place" (the urgent care where you had your lip stitched a year ago after falling off our bed), "turch" (church), "Lobby, Lobby" (Hobby Lobby), "Togurt" (Target), and "Toger" (Kroger) among many other landmarks.
Lotus Festival
You LOVE Rapunzel and Curious George. You LOVE to play in the sandbox and get sand in every knook and cranny of your sweet little body. You LOVE to cut and cut and cut. We could start a confetti company with all of the paper that you cut each day. Coloring books are for cutting, not coloring in your mind.
You LOVE to be tickled and play monsters because you also love Monsters, Inc. You LOVE to sing any song you can make up or remember. You LOVE smoothies and it is how I get green stuff in you whenever we have them. (Yes, I pack them full of spinach and you have no idea.) You pick every green thing out of your food and are a pretty picky eater. You LOVE macaroni and cheese.
Your most treasured item is your "B" (blanket) that Dobbie gave to us before you were born.
4th of July
Now that you're 3 we'll be working on big girl things like potty training and sleeping in a big girl bed. Once you've mastered those things, you really will be a big girl.
Silly Faces
You are just plain amazing. You make us laugh everyday. You push our buttons everyday. You have a will that is stronger than no other. I have to remind myself alot that will be an incredible quality as you grow up. You love to be ornery and will probably be quite a prankster as you get older. You are fearless too.
Nature Hike
Your smile lights up the room just as it has since your first smile. You have a twinkle in your eyes that has been there since we first laid eyes on you. Your little crescent moon eyes are still there when you get a big grin.
Date with Pumpkin
We love you to the moon and back, little girl. We always have and we always will!
Happy 3rd Birthday!
