In the blink of an eye, three years have come and gone. My tiny, helpless little baby has turned into a sweet, thoughtful, beautiful little girl and is growing up so very quickly!
I’ve seen a lot of those birthday survey’s floating around and decided this would be a great year to start that tradition! I’ll (hopefully) use this same survey to ask her the same questions every year on her birthday. Without further adieu, here is the first edition of the annual Birthday Survey!
Hadley Ann, You are the sweetest, most thoughtful three year old (really you’re sweeter and more thoughtful than most adults) I know! What a blessing it is to be your momma! It is such a sweet privilege to stay home with you and watch you grow and discover the world around you. You have such a kind, tender heart; are an amazing big sister; and are a rule follower – to a T!
You’ve had so many milestones in the past year it’s hard to recount them all! You’re in your big girl bed – 8p-8a most nights and still nap once a day for 2-3 hours. For the most part, you’re a pretty good eater (for a three year old). You definitely prefer the usual kid-foods (your favs are grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, pizza, mac&cheese, spaghetti, fruit, waffles, green beans and occasionally carrots and peas), but will try anything we ask you to try (and every now and then surprise us by liking something new!).
We’re working on the potty training thing (4 days in today) and you are doing really well. I’m not holding my breath, but I think we’re on the right track!
We finally kicked the paci-habit back in September and never looked back. I thought it would never happen, but you surprised me by handling it like a big girl and after your prize (a Doc McStuffins doctor kit) you never looked back!
Daddy and I are so proud of who you are becoming and we couldn’t love you more! I just pray that you would come to know how much more the Lord loves you!
Happy third birthday sweet pea! I can’t wait to watch you grow and celebrate all your birthdays to come!!
