Dear Scout,

Today you are three years old.  And just like two months flew by with Olive, three years have passed in the blink of an eye.  And at three you are becoming a big girl.  You talk a mile a minute, tell knock-knock jokes, and just have lots of great ideas.

Birthday Girl 12
It was a good birthday, but by the end you were a mess.
We are still working on the potty training, and you may be the most stubborn child that has ever lived.  But we are trying.  I think one day you will just decide that you are done with diapers and that will be it.  I hope.  Soon the Paci Fairy will be coming too.

  17. What Do You Want for Dinner for Your Birthday: cake 
  18. What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Up: Firefighter (you are currently talking about firefighters at day care)

You crack us up with the things you say, and you have a lot of things to say.  You love to play pretend: restaurant, grocery store, kitchen, babies.  You love to be outside, but the weather hasn't been very nice this spring.


For weeks and weeks before your birthday, you told me you wanted a princess cake.  But a week before your birthday you went to the grocery store with Emily and saw an Easter Bunny cake, and so you started saying that you wanted a pink bunny cake.  So a pink bunny cake you received.  But in the end, you didn't eat any cake.

You are a great big sister.  If Olive fusses, you rush to give her her paci.  But most of the time you are way too busy to play her baby games.

So Happy Birthday Miss Scout!  You make our days pretty fantastic and fun.
