Happy 3rd Birthday, Edith!

Sept. 12, 2015

They say the days go by slowly, but the years go by fast. Never have three years passed by any quicker than the last three with Edith. Her third birthday is already this Saturday.

How much has changed since 2012! The little baby of yesterday is now running and jumping and easy to make laugh. She's singing songs and playing games. She's not only talking, but conversing.

Numbers, letters, colors, shapes -- those are all old hat. Now she wants to know how words are spelled and demands books by name. Her favorite question: "What's that?" No longer content with a toy or two, she wants to create. Blocks, watercolors and Play-Doh are popular with her right now.

She's a wonderful big sister and watches out for her little brother (even if it's just to keep him away from her toys!). She'll ride in the stroller reluctantly, much preferring to give up her seat to Atticus so that she can walk. And she's anxious to get out the door if we're going to the library, playground, store or grocer.

With these new preferences, skills and vocabulary come new challenges. This girl has a mind of her own. But even on the most frustrating of days, I wouldn't change her for the world.
