Happy birthday, baby!

Where on earth have the last 3 years gone?  My sweet baby girl turned 3 today!  She is such a funny, sweet, sassy, stubborn, loving girl!  She makes me laugh and, yes, sometimes want to pull my hair out.  But I love this girl and am so grateful I get to be her Mom.  I know I mess up  A LOT... but she has somehow turned out pretty great so far!
She LOVES to sing.  Some of her favorites to sing right now are:  The Veggie Tales Theme Song, God is Bigger Than the Boogie Man, Do As I'm Doing, When I am Baptized, I am a Child of God. I have tried to capture her cute little singing voice on film, but she is not cooperative!

She LOVES Peter Pan and Disney Princesses.

She loves to pretend to be other people.  Today she was pretending to be Darth Vader, "Give yourself to the dark side."  (Complete with Vader breathing)

She is scared of owls, and birds and sneezing puppies and kitties, and grass and sticks.  I don't know why she is afraid of most of these things but we have to pray everyday to be kept safe from them.

She loves people!  She makes friends so quickly.

She is fighting potty training like none other.  GRRRR!  She will do a funny walk after she has peed in her diaper now. 

We found out today what an adrenaline junkie she is!  We went to Trafalga and she was ready to ride all the rides all by herself.  Her favorite was the Frog Hopper... it lifts you up high and then bounces you up and down.  She rode it at least 5 times.  Then as we were walking to the car she said, "Oh... we forgot to ride the big Frog!"

We like her a lot!

She's so cute! I can't believe she's brave enough to do the rides all by herself. I guess she had her birthday and turned into a big girl (minus the potty training). :)

Happy birthday!!

She really does have quite the personality! And I love to hear her talking. She has the cutest way of talking. :o) You got a good one, for sure!
