Three Years Old!

We had our 3 year well check today! It was so different than the ones before. She wore a little gown, (isn't it so cute?!?) instead of running around in a diaper like at 2 years! She had a hearing and vision screening. I don't know why, but I thought it was SO cute when she held her little hand up listening to the beep in her ear. She is just such a big girl! I could tell she was quite nervous the whole way to the office, she was very aware where we were going. And, of course, the office was moving to an electronic charting system today, so we had to wait a LONG time. But, she did so good. When Dr. Terk came in, she greeted him by saying, "Hi, Dr. Terk. My mommy said that you are a pediatrician." I think just to make sure he was really who he (and I) said he was! He got a kick out of that. She did well through the exam, as long as I was right there beside her. When he asked her to climb up on the exam table, she told him that I was going to stand right beside her. She weighs 31 lbs and is 36 inches tall, a whole yard stick!!! That puts her between the 50-75th percentile for both her height and weight. Dr. Terk said that she was "just great!"

Addie girl, you are such a blessing to us. I can't believe that it has been three whole years since you made your grand entrance into the world. But I know one thing, you have not stopped spinning, twirling, or even almost slowed down. You are such a strong, intelligent little girl and you definitely keep mommy and daddy on our toes! I pray that as you grow into a little lady, our bond grows stronger and stronger. We pray that God grabs ahold of your little heart, as I know he has started to stir questions in there already at your young age. We pray for your future husband that right now, he is being nurtured, loved, and at this early age, already seeing what it means to be a man of God. It has been neat over the last couple of months to see you and your brother start to really enjoy each other. He loves you so much, and you are already such a good big sister. Thank you for the joy that you bring us, and the way that you challenge us everyday. We love you more than words can express. Happy 3rd Birthday Sweet Addie!

A "Pinkalicious" Party

I definitely have a girly-girl on my hands! One of her favorite books is "Pinkalicious!"
It is about a girl who eats so many pink cupcakes that she turns pink! We decided that would be a good theme for Addie's 3rd Birthday Party!!! Our new playroom made a perfect location for the party. We moved all of the toys out and trans the formed the room...

The Birthday Princess
She invited 6 little girls (one got sick, sad...) and the only time that I got them to all sit still together, sweet little Lana was in the potty.
Adam read the girls the "Pinkalicious" story
we colored, painted fingernails, and decorated pink cupcakes
She was so excited that we were singing to her!

This was my first experience with a child opening birthday presents, (besides her one year party where I did most of the opening), it was complete chaos!
Thank you to everyone who came! We are so blessed with such wonderful friends and family!
