It is hard to believe that a week has already passed since your third birthday. It is harder yet to believe that three years have passed since your birth! I never could have anticipated how much my life could change in three years, or how much it was possible for me to love and cherish another human being.

In addition to your musical endeavors, you love being outdoors, reading, animals, and art. One of your favorite books is your book of animals, which you insist on looking through at least once a day. You can identify and name every animal in the book, complete with the sounds they make. You also like to spend some time each day with your art supplies; coloring with crayons or markers, painting, or using chalk, and have recently discovered the joy of clay.
You are fascinated by the weather and love looking out our big living room window and describing (often in song!) the type of day we're having. Last week we got a light dusting of snow, and you were disappointed that it wasn't enough to make a snowman. The week before that we had a thunderstorm after you'd gone to bed, and you woke up and called me into your room to inform me that it was raining and you needed an umbrella!

It was wonderful to celebrate you, your birth, and all of the joy and adventure you have brought into our lives. The year ahead has a lot in store for us, as we grow into a family of four and you ease into your new role as a big sister. No matter the ups and downs, I am so thankful that we're together for the ride!
