My little baby - you are growing up way too fast. It doesn't seem like you should be turning 3 already, but here you are on your birthday, loving every moment and telling everyone you meet that today is your birthday and you are 3!!
Can you please slow down just a little bit? I don't think I am ready for you to be quite so independent and grown-up. You have always been the best little snuggler in the world, and I love how you still like to just run up to me and hug me whenever the moment strikes you. Know that my arms will always be open to receive one of your "big squeezes" any time.
You have more spunk and attitude in your personality than I think should be about to fit into your little body and yet you are the sweetest, most lovable little thing I know. I love how into your dress-up and playing you get with acting out whatever little stories are playing through your head. Your imagination knows no bounds and I hope it never stops growing.
I love how much you love your mom and dad and big sister. Your laughter and smile can brighten even the worst of days. You telling me and your dad how much you love us to the moon and back right before you fall asleep is the best way to end the day.
I love how you are ready and oh so willing to strike a pose and smile your biggest smile for the camera whenever I turn it your way. You are finally fully potty trained (which is the best birthday present you could give to me) and oh so proud of being such a big girl.
I just have to share how 2 days before your birthday you were "practicing" how to blow out birthday candles with your PB&J and the pretzels which were your "candles" just so you would be ready for when it was time for the real birthday cake and that you came up with this idea all on your own. Your imagination truly has no boundaries. I think all your practicing paid off.
Happy Birthday K!!
I hope your birthday wishes come true!!
