Yesterday my firstborn turned three. I can't believe she's three...wasn't she just a wee baby snuggled on my chest with her whole little hand wrapped around my finger. Now it's the other way around, I'm totally wrapped around hers!

We celebrated her birthday all day long. We started the day by having chocolate milk with whipped cream with our breakfast. Then we went to party city and to get her a special "Birthday Girl" pin and a couple of purple balloons for her and sister.


After that we had a very yummy lunch with Dada. We ate at Poor Richards Cafe and it was so.stinkin.good!!! Ice cream followed and then after nap time we picked Kyle up and headed to Sweet & Sassy. She had an appointment for "A day at the beach make-over!" She picked out some pretty purple polish (big surprise) and then got a pedicure, manicure, (with nail art), glitter and scented spray in her hair, and make-up. She loved it! She kept saying, "Momma, I'm fancy!" She was little unsure of the whole nail filing, and got a little antsy towards the end, but overall it was a great experience. After that we played in the playground and then ate supper at In-n-Out. It was a super fun day celebrating our sweet girl!

Beautiful babe :)

A bit about my sassy three year old.
She is so much fun and so full of this infectious joy and zest for life. She thinks the little things are magical and is obsessed with all things purple. She loves wearing "beautiful dresses" and is such a big help around the house. I can't believe in a few months she'll be a big sister for the 2nd time!

She is so smart and has such a vivid imagination. She loves to build "towers" and "castles for Punzal" (Rapunzel). She quotes movies and tv shows and is very independent. She loves to read. She's fearless.  She insists on us following her around the yard as she sings, "Following the yee-dah, the yee-dah, following the yee-dah wherever she may go. Do-dum, di-do, diddy dum di do." In case you didn't follow, that's one of the songs from Peter Pan, "Following the Leader." Here is a video of her singing the song, you may have to turn the volume up.

When you ask her how old she is she says, "I five and you ten!" When you ask her about eye color she'll say, "My eyes are blue just like the sky and Daddy and RoRo too. Momma, Mimi, and Aunt Sissy has green eyes just like the trees. Papaw's eyes are black like the dark outside." She can count all the way to twenty-ten. Which is really thirty. When she wants you to hold her or lay down with her she'll say, "I hold choo" or "Choo come lay down with me." She loves making pretend Popsicles out of random objects. She likes sleeping on the "floor bed." She carries around a basket of foam toys that she insists are cookies for Grandma. She loves acting out/hearing/re-telling the story of the Three Little Pigs and Little Red Riding Hood. She has memorized her first scripture. Matthew 5:16. She is proficient at getting snacks out of the fridge for Rowynn and her. She loves kissing her baby brother (my stomach). When she's playing with her daddy she'll say in her most sassiest voice, "Hey, what's going on here!"

She keeps us on our toes and is the sweetest, sassiest three year old I know. I love you something fierce Finley Rose!!! I hope you had a magical birthday and feel cherished, because sweet girl you are. You make my heart happy and I'm so thankful I get to spend my days with you and your sister. Love you more!
