Birthday Girl

My Dearest Bella...

Today you turn three.  Three.  Wow!  There is something about age three that moves you out of the "baby" category.  You are now a big girl, well, you have known that for a while as I am pretty sure some days you think you are 7, but today I am realizing this.  As hard as it is for me to let you grow up (not that I really have a choice) it is so so so so fun to watch you grow up.  Your personality is just so fun. You are one fun girl.  How could you not just be adored by everyone who meets you.  The personality you show when you talk ... the personality you show when you walk... the personality you show when you don't get your way (wink wink)... you are just so full of life and spunk gosh we sure love you!!!  Now that you are three you talk non-stop.  I need to record some of our conversations because they are just hysterical.  Especially before we go to bed.. "Mommy.. I love you so much, Mommy, I love you all the way up to the sky, mommy I love you"  I love you too hunny.... thank you for letting me know so much!

You now look forward to coming home and knocking on your friends doors to see if they can play, you love riding your new pink bike that you got for your birthday.. you love your baby dolls and you make a pretty great mommy to al of them!  You started preschool in November and that was the best thing we could have done for you.. you are so proud of all the beautiful artwork you create in school and when I pick you up you have the biggest smile on your face.  I can't wait for next year as I know you will have a great time at MECC preschool when you will get to do 4 days a week.  This past week we went to Florida for vacation.. and you are one fabulous swimmer.  You love swimming to me and telling me to scoot further back so you can swim farther to me.  You just make my heart sing.  xxoo

Bella.. I know I tell you this all the time, but I am so proud of the sweet little girl you are.  I love that you love your family so much.. I love that you always tell Mommy, Daddy and Jacob how much you love us as we love you so much too!  I love that you have such a strong personality because I know you will never let anyone walk all over you and you will be one fabulous leader.  Thank you for bringing so many smiles to my day.  I love waking up to you by my side (because we both know that is where you end up most night).... I love when you wrap your arms around me so tight... I love your sweet voice ... I love every bit about you and am having so much watching your little personality develop.

Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

I love you!
