Little one, I am two days late on this post. Between working night shifts and back to back family birthday parties, along with planning your joint party, I just couldn’t find the time.
That being said, we celebrated you thoroughly little girl. I came home from night shift and went straight to your room and woke you up by singing Happy Birthday. You smiled so sweetly in your sleep and said “I just knew it would be my birthday today!”.
You came upstairs to your presents and had another round of Happy birthday sang over your cinnamon bun. You were so pumped to get your minion scooter, but what melted my heart was when you opened your bowling set. The first thing you said was “Abby, I will share this with you”. You little darling :-)
You had a very special morning at preschool because Daddy brought the grader for a presentation for your friends! He said you were so proud to show everyone. Later I joined for your show and share, and your amazing teacher indulged you by letting you scoot all over the classroom as you pushed the button that makes your scooter talk.
After school, you also requested soup from Tim Hortons so we went there and are. Afterwards it was straight home for a nap before dinner. While you slept I baked your cakes for the party and painted some signs.
You requested to ” go to McDonald’s or something?” for dinner, so we were joined by our family at the play place for a delightful meal of burgers and fries. You got to play, eat whatever you wanted and had another go at some cupcakes and gifts. By far your fave was a Tumbling Stuart doll that farts.
Although there was about 10 burgers in here, you thought it was for you!
You finished off the night at Nana’s so that I could get some sleep before my nightshift, but you told me you had a great day. It was so lovely celebrating you little one!
My little spit fire, I just love you so much. You are sweet and spicy, serious and funny, and such a little joy. I feel like looking back, your personality as a baby has carried through to today.
You are a happy little soul and love playing outside and make believe. You are normally playing baby or puppy with your sister or can be found on your bike or scooter, or playing outside.
You love to colour and play kitchen, and cook us all a lot of delicious pretend foods. Your current favourite foods are sushi, tomatoes and basil according to yourself. You still have a terrifying love for coffee, and no cup is safe around you. You will drink lattes, espresso, black or flavoured, basically whatever is unattended long enough for you to get your little paws on. I can’t count the number of times I have looked down to find you have grabbed my cup and are guzzling it. Girl after my own heart.
You are ferociously sweet and wildly stubborn all at the same time. You remain a zero to sixty type personality, but are so easy to calm. Our current strategy is to have you put a hand on your chest and make it rise and fall so that you take deep breaths. Despite the occasional outburst, you are actually a very well manner child…with a piercing scream :-).
You adore your older sister and you two are truly the best of friends. You play so nicely together, and you are so good at sharing. It makes my mama heart so proud to see how you two take care of each other. You also adore babies, and dote on your cousin McKinlee and little friend Beckett any time you are near them. Although we don’t want any more in our family, I am slightly sad that you don’t get to be a big sister, because you would be an amazing one.
You are a long legged lady, and at 37 inches are fairly tall for your age. You weighed 31 lbs at your 3 year check up, and it is a good thing you are light because you can be a real suck when you are tired and like to be carried. Thankfully that isn’t too tough still, but surely those days are numbered!
Speaking of being carried, this also happens a lot because you fall asleep every where. We pretty much can’t drive more than 6 minutes before you fall asleep, and usually we can bring you to bed if we are headed home. Driving the other night to Uncle Mike’s (5 minutes away) Abby turned to you and said “hey, you stayed awake the whole ride. Good for you!”.
You loved dance class, and surprised us by how well you listened and followed instructions, even though you were too young for the class. You look so sweet in your little ballet gear, and love to do “pins” and booty shakes.
You started preschool, something you have been waiting for for two years now and were so excited. You love to go, and have stomped your foot more than once about how it isn’t fair that Abby gets to go every morning. I do love our little one on one time together though :-)
You are minion OBSESSED, and shriek any time you see anything Minions, anywhere. Your friends fueled your obsession at your birthday, and you love your little buddies Kevin, “Tuart” and “Bahwb”.
My littlest girl, you are the cutest little thing I have ever had the pleasure of calling my baby. You are a sweet little imp, a comic little ham, and a tender little soul. There is not one inch of you I would change, and I am so proud to be your Mama. I love you Angel!
