Happy Birthday Lily!

Today is our baby girl's 3rd birthday!! I can't believe she is 3 already! I will admit I'm a bit nervous for the 3's since I've heard they are worse than the 2's and her second year of life was no piece of cake! But, I know we'll get through it with God's grace of course! Lily is such a joy in our lives and truly is a sweet girl. Of course she has her moments, but what 3 year old doesn't?! She LOVES her daddy and is always wanting to "hold him"-she still says hold you when she wants AJ to hold her. I love it! She is off the charts for her height and we actually go for her 3 year check-up on Monday so I'll be anxious to see how tall she is! She is wearing 5T pants/shirts just so we can get the length to be long enough on her! She really does love her brother and is always saying hi to him, smothering him with kisses, trying to give him (or force on him!) a binky if he's crying, and will even read to him! She has a BIG sweet tooth for sure and if she says she isn't hungry she'll always find room for sweets (we don't let her have too much!). She is also a night owl. We put her to bed between 8 and 8:30 but 99% of the time she won't fall asleep until 9 or 9:30! She'll just lay in her bed and sing songs or talk to her baby. You'd think with her falling asleep so late that she'd sleep in-but nope! She still wakes up between 7:30 and 8am. It's not that bad but I wouldn't mind if it was later! Her favorite songs to sing right now are "The wheels on the bus", "Jesus loves me", her "ABC's", and "Deep and wide." Lily makes AJ and I laugh all the time with words or phrases she'll say. She is a talker too but will act shy around new people. Give her 5 minutes though and she'll be your best friend. We love you Lily Mae and are SO thankful God gave you to us! Happy 3rd Birthday!

Your kids are so cute! I found your blog from a comment you left on Kendra's blog. I just had a baby boy about 2 months ago after struggling with infertility for a long time. We love him so much! Hope you have a great week :)
