My Baby Love -Isabelle,
Hi baby girl! You are officially 3 years old today. Like I’ve said in every birthday you and your brother had, “Had it been that long already?!”. Three beautiful, challenging, dramatic, chaotic (in a good way), and magical years. Three years since you’ve changed our lives for the better. Three years since I’ve said that our family is finally complete.
You as a two year old has been challenging… Well, that’s an understatement. You are someone with so much character. You certainly have shown me a lot of yourself, myself, parenting, patience, life and love. You and your brother are a handful to say the least.
You do everything with an exclamation point! Your life is an exclamation point. When you mean to do something you give it your all. Keep that up my love. Your enthusiasm in life should be the way everyone should live the life we are given. And with that, I am so proud of you.
And just like your big brother, you are a smarty pants. You learn things by your self. Sometimes, you make me feel like I’m not needed anymore. You amaze me with everything you do at such a young age. You are incredibly talented. You love to make up songs, play as a television host with that toy microphone of yours and of course dance. Mommy and Daddy can’t dance to save their life, we are really not sure where you got that talent cause baby girl, you got the moves.
Your big beautiful smile is magnetic. You just draw everyone to you. You are very friendly, often shy. But you never fail to wave and say hi to everyone. You are extremely polite. You make mommy so proud. You never forget to say thank you and please.
Everyday is an adventure and an opportunity for you to do something fun and sometimes crazy. You love to jump and slide and swing. You are never afraid of anything, well, except bugs. I often say you are feisty, which you are. You never back down and that makes me feel proud. I know that at some point your life you need to stand up to anyone when you know you are right and as early as now, I know you will.
As someone as tiny as you are you are very protective. You will stand against mommy and daddy to protect your brother from being punished when he does something wrong. I know you love your brother dearly and feel like no one can touch him except you.
Your little words are little but goes deep. When you say “I love you, Mommy” I know you mean it. It is something you don’t say a lot. So when you do, I know you really mean you love me as much as I do to you.
M baby girl, soon you will be a baby no more… As much as I want to keep you this small forever, I know I can’t. I just want you to know that in this 3rd year of your life you already are such a big person, bigger than some people I know who have been living life longer than you. I only wish that you will not lose this spirit. And that you will continue to be the beautiful person that you are now forever. Me, Daddy and Logan will help and guide you to be just that. We love and cherish you very much.
Happy Birthday my dear Isabelle Lauren! You turn 3 years old today. Go get ’em!
Love, kisses, sprinkles and sparkles,
