The day we celebrated your third birthday, I was a jumbled mess of emotions.
Why, You ask?
Because I couldn't believe how fast time has flown by since you've came into my life. Also because I can't believe what a big girl you are. I do believe how smart you are and how wonderful you are with your sister. I always knew you would be an amazing child.
You've grown into a beautiful child that is so much fun to play with. I love how you put all the marker caps on your fingers and chase me around with them. I adore how you help out in the garden, dig holes in the riding ring and make it a point to pet your favorite horses everyday. It makes me smile that you love dinosaurs so much and insist on carrying around your two foot tall T-Rex everywhere. When you insist he guards you while you shower and sleep at night, I smile and know that this is only further proof that you are the most fascinating child ever.
You never fail to find the humor in what you do. You are always smiling and laughing and I am so lucky that you are an easy child, especially now that we have Turtle in the picture.
The way you ignore her cries in the middle of the night amazes me, the way you comfort her cries in the day moves me. You share your toys, play with her and love to take baths with her. I hope you are going to be the best of friends.
I know I've always said you were a genius child, but now you are proving it to the world. You can spell your name, count to ten, read all your flash cards with expertise and identify colors with no problems. In no time at all you'll be outsmarting your Mama and Daddy.
I love you so much Roo... so so much.
