Turning 3

My Little One turned 3 on Good Friday. She was so very excited to finally be three! I wish I could have bottled her excitement for turning another year older and unleashed it on my next birthday. She was truly a joy to watch.



We had a party for her the week before with some of her Kindermusik friends. This is a neat class we go to each week to sing, dance, and play instruments. Ms. Celeste, her teacher, hosted the party in the church's basement where we have our classes.
"Reading" her card to her sisters.



The sweet alligator cupcake cake she asked her big sis Em to make for her!

We celebrated again on her actual birthday. In fact, she woke up early that morning to run into her sisters room to wake them up and let them know "I am finally three!".

That night as she cuddled with me before bedtime she whispered into my ear, "I hope my next birthday comes soon!" I smiled as I kissed her goodnight reminding myself to treasure the next 365 days because no doubt her birthday will come sooner than I am ready for!
