I am still in shock, so bear with me as I process the news that my baby girls are actually 3 years old now! I don’t know what happened. Where did the time go? It really seems like just a few months ago that we were bringing their tiny selves home from the hospital and here they are, looking at me with very grown up 3 year old big brown eyes.
We celebrated the day of their birthday by taking them to Memphis to see their Nana and Granddaddy at the hospital and then to Incredible Pizza.
When we got to the hospital they got presents and cupcakes. They were over the moon with the new princess costumes and night gowns they got and licked the cupcakes completely clean of their icing.
When we got to Incredible Pizza they were too excited to do much eating, they just wanted to hit the games and slide. We played for hours and had a great time!
When we were almost back to town my aunt called so we stopped there so they could wish the girls a happy birthday. There were more cupcakes and presents and then we finally made it home.
For supper we were all pleasantly surprised by 3 cousins coming to visit for their special day!
Between the calls, visits, and well wishes on Facebook, we were just overwhelmed with love! The girls’ third birthday was a truly wonderful day <3
Tonight is their birthday party/dinner so we’re really looking forward to that and I can’t wait to post pictures of all the adorable Wizard of Oz themed decorations!
Just to give you a good picture of what it’s like having 3 year olds-some of the things that they’re doing are:
*recognizing the letters of the alphabet
*recognizing their name and spelling it aloud
*dressing themselves, including choosing their own clothes
*putting their dirty clothes in the hamper
*putting their dirty dishes in the sink
*putting their toys away, though I have to firmly direct when they’ve created a complete disaster
*pottying all alone
This list could go on and on! I just can’t believe how grown up 3 years old can be!
They are all into dress up, role play, make believe, and playing “school”. They’re almost always someone else, this morning they were actually both boys that we saw last night at a friend’s twins’ birthday party ;) They have switched from wanting to sleep in pants/shirts pajamas to all gowns, and they are often adorned on top with a princess dress. They have to do EVERYTHING for themselves, right down to wanting to spread the butter and jelly on their toast. Their favorite movies are The Wizard of Oz, Annie, and any of the Disney princess movies. They sing along with most any music we hear and pick up lyrics really quickly. Overall, they’re just a joy to be around and I’m amazed daily at how fast they are turning into little ladies <3
