You are a big girl now.
A three-year that goes pee pee in the potty.
A three-year old that thinks taking a bath is what you do after you go potty.
A three-year old that demands frozen pancakes morning, noon, and night.
A three-year old that thinks Target is just a really big Starbucks.
A three-year old that starts preschool in just two short weeks.
A three-year old that still barely talks, but is quite demanding when you do.
A three-year old that loves to just go driving in the car, you do not even care where.
A three-year old that is obsessed with the color orange.
A three-year old that loves peanut butter sandwiches.
A three-year old that just saw her first movie in the theater.
A three-year old that still sleeps in the bed with mommy and daddy.
A three-year old that has already been to California, Texas, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, Kansas, Wyoming, and of course Colorado in your short life. Just 37 more to go!
Mommy and daddy are super lucky to have you. You are the best “almost” birthday present either of us ever got. I tried writing you a letter. One where I actually explain how difficult and miraculous it was to have you, but mommy can’t stop crying long enough to write it. So maybe next year. I am also thinking a hotel slumber party, crazy?
Happy birthday baby.
