Yesterday, my baby girl turned three years old. It’s bittersweet watching your baby grow up, isn’t it? I love the girl she is becoming and find such joy in watching new layers of her personality emerge with every passing month. At the same time I don’t want her to ever outgrow the need for a hug and kiss from Mommy or Daddy. I want her to stay my little girl forever.
Her official birthday party is on Saturday, but we had a mini-celebration on the actual day of her birth. She was excited to open some gifts.
We splurged and let her get a chock-full-of-sugar piece of chocolate cake (to share).
After the wait staff sang the Happy Birthday song, she was ready to dig in. Can you tell this girl loves chocolate? This picture is not posed at all; it’s just a random shot taken of her eating her cake. Her face looks like this with every single bite. She’s serious about her sweets.
