It was that fast. Seriously.
I've done the monthly updates and I've updated y'all on BG as she's aged, but I don't even think there are words I can say that can even remotely describe my kid.
But I am going to try. ;)
Baby Girl, you are three. And you are far and away the coolest kid, heck, one of the coolest people I've ever been lucky enough to be around. You do not meet a stranger. Though you may have a shy moment, it takes you no time to warm up to people and to start talking their heads off. And talk you do. A lot. Your vocabulary meets and exceeds any expectation one could have for a three year old. You wake up talking and you go to bed talking. There is no breather at all during the day. You've even taking to talking in your sleep. You are a talker. That is for sure.
You are not a big toy person. You prefer to be around people and talking and laughing and playing with them than sitting with a toy any day of the week. You do love books though. If you ever disappear to your room for a bit, we can bet we'll find you on your floor surrounded by a stack of books. I was just like that. I love seeing that love of reading passed down to you. You are starting to dig puzzles and you enjoy doing them, though you still prefer to do them with us and not on your own. Like I've said, you are a people person. Not a loner at all.
Your favorite people are your family. You LOVE your family. A close second is still Miss Brittany followed closely by Zoie and Miss Stacy and your buddy Livingston and her parents (you ask about these people daily). You are starting to really enjoy your school (just in time to move to a new one) and are a favorite among all of your teachers. What can I say? People love them some Baby Girl.
But to balance out all that sweetness, you have a stubborn streak a mile wide. You are hands down the sassiest child I have ever been around. You wear us out daily. You are always quick with a retort and I have yet to find a situation that you didn't have something to smart about. And if we're wrong? you are more than quick to inform us of the fact. Your pediatrician even remarked "that's a spirited one right there" about you after first meeting you and you were even on your best behavior then. I can only hope that your quick wit, your sarcasm, and your stubbornness will find a cozy niche in your life. Hopefully it's small niche.
You still have a love for Dora that knows no bounds but you're venturing out more and more. We found this random show on Netflix, Pingu, that you can't get enough of. Disney movies are finally making it into the rotation but your attention span is still only about 30 minutes on a good day. You much prefer outdoor activities to anything inside. You do love to draw though and your easel from Aunt Kiki and Uncle M is still a big time favorite in this house.
Your Dad and I just plain adore you. While three is not easy, I have to say this age is quickly finding it's way into my "favorite ever" category. You and I have developed this relationship that I just plain can't get enough of. We laugh so much, talk so much, and play so hard that I find my moments with you to just be full. They leave my happy tank full and leave me wanting many, many more of them. I love our little secrets and our music filled car rides and, well, just about everything with you. You are my favorite little person.
