Yesterday Sophia turned 3. She could hardly wait, in fact the night before her birthday she was saying as I was tucking her in, “But I want to be 3 right now!”. And all I wanted to say to her was, “I just want you to stay the way you are now forever!”
But that’s just because we love so many things about this little girl. How she likes to be pretty, how she loves to cuddle and how she adores William, how she misses Sarah when she’s not around and how she bosses around Erik even though he’s 6 years older than her. We like how she pronounces ‘Suburban’, ‘ba-burvan’. We love how she wants her ‘guy-guy’ when she’s tired or upset and how much she loves people and is always ready to give us hugs and how if she even has a 5 minute nap she won’t be ready to fall asleep at night until 10:00 pm. Adorable.
So no wonder we enjoyed celebrating her birthday and letting her be the special little girl for the day. And she loved it all. She loved all her gifts and spending time with grandma and getting to pick out her most gorgeous Hello Kitty build-a-bear. Who knew heads on a stuffed animal could be so big…
Good grief, its head is bigger than Sophia’s! But she loves it and that’s the main thing.
And we loved eating pizza and cake with her and singing Happy birthday and having a great evening with Jay’s family and just spending time with her and with everyone.
We’ve been blessed by her for these 3 yeas and in all honesty, I am looking forward to loving her as she grows up.
We love you Sophia, Happy Birthday!
