Ella is THREE!

I can't believe you are THREE! You are no longer a baby, but a little girl. Your little hands aren't so chubby anymore. Your voice isn't so babyish. Oh, how the baby stage flew by. Now it's time to embrace the years you are a child, instead of a baby. I'm reminded of the poem below:

"Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow.
for babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow.
so quiet down, cobwebs.
dust, go to sleep.

I'm rocking my baby, and babies don't keep."

It's sad, BUT exciting at the same time. There are so many wonderful joys to having you as our little girl.

Your favorite Movies/TV shows are:
- Tangled
- Little Bear
- Franklin
- Beauty and the Beast
- Up
- Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
- The Incredibles

You love to sing songs! Here are your favorites:
- Head and Shoulders Knees and Toes
- If You're Happy and You Know It
- Rock-a-bye-baby
- Wheels on the Bus

You LOVE school. Everyone seems to know you there, even the teachers in other rooms, because you are known as "Miss Social." You have lots of friends. You only talk about the girls because this is what you ALWAYS say, "I play with girls. Not boys."

You are a girly girl. You love everything pink, sparkly, frilly, and poofy! You want to wear dresses and skirts everyday and you have to have a bow in your hair. You hate wearing sneakers and say, "Those are boy shoes. Girls wear pink and sparkly shoes."

You love princesses and have many princess dresses: Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Belle. Your two favorites are Rapunzel and Belle.

You started dance class and you have a BLAST! The dance studio comes to your school each Friday morning, so it's incorporated into your school day. It's very convenient!

You are potty trained! YAY! You still have accidents in your pants with going #2, but it's not all the time. Eventually you will get it...

Naptime and bedtime have been much better. You go to bed on your own. Sometimes you will cry, but you fall asleep without mommy in the room. You sleep in the craziest positions, like the one below. Good thing there are guard rails!

You have surprised us on being a risk taker. You are bold in trying new things. You will slide down BIG slides all by yourself and LOVE it. These two pictures CRACK US UP and truly capture your personality!

The question you ask all the time is, "Who bought this?" We have no idea why you want to know who bought EVERYTHING, but for some reason it is interesting to you.

Drama. Drama. Drama. You have so much of it. Whew! We are having to squash this on a daily basis. We have also asked your teachers with help on this. Sometimes you will act sad or pout on purpose just to get attention. We ignore this behavior as much as possible.

Happy Birthday to our incredible THREE year old. You are loving, fiesty, caring, independent, hilarious, and oh so cute!
