Today is my little girl’s 3rd birthday.
As any mother, I’m getting emotional thinking about how fast she is growing….3 years might not mean a whole lot to us adults, but to a child, it’s monumental.
She started off as a little 20.5 inch person and today she is 37 inches. During this time, she learned to get in trouble, learned to tell jokes, learned to negotiate and learned to smile her way out of trouble.
During this time, I’ve
learned learning to be more patient (although failing miserably at times). I’ve learned who I am and my place in this world and I’m learning how to be a better person for my daughter (and my son).
I watch my daughter grow into herself each day…how confident she is and how fearless she’ll explore…how determined she is and how quickly she wants tasks accomplished. I feel so proud of the person she is today and the person she’s becoming.
As I sit her reflecting on our last 3 years together, I can’t help but rewatch this video of her first year over and over again (and getting totally emotional). Gosh, how different she looks now than 3 years ago. It just amazes me how much she has changed and will continue to change.
Happy 3rd birthday my love. Thank you for being in my life and creating some of the best moments of my life.
