Birthday- Version 3, Part 1

My dear sweet Kyndall,

You are 3 years old today! Where did the time go? You weigh 26.6lbs and about 36.5 inches tall(we'll get official measurements Jan. 4). I think you've finally caught up clothes wise(at least for the fall/winter), and you're wearing 3T in almost everything and size 8 shoes.

Your vocabulary has exploded, so has your attitude, but you can make us laugh with some of the things you say. You have amazing gross motor skills and can hop, jump, run, and even skate with the best of 'em! You sing and count all the time.

You are pretty excited that your daddy "saves kids" and drives an ambulance at work, and that mommy drives a bus at work. You have lots of friends at school that you talk about all the time, and you LOVE your teacher, Ms. Nell.

So how did we celebrate your birthday? Well, the Baylor Bears celebrated early and won their bowl game! And because you stayed up to watch that game, we slept in.

I put on your special birthday girl outfit, and you made me go outside and take your picture. (I'm sure the days of wanting your picture to be taken are limited!)

After the photo op, we went to Chuck E. Cheese, where I didn't take many pictures, but you did end up with almost 800 tickets! You got a soccer ball, a thing of play dough, a pencil topper, and smarties. After CEC, we went and got banana shakes.

Then, you did a little skating! You got these from Santa, and you've skated almost every day. I have to admit, you're pretty good at it, and when you fall you get right back up and go at it again!

Later that day, Ganny and Pawpa came over to help celebrate! They brought you a cake, cupcakes, and lots of gifts. Then we went to Olive Garden for dinner where the whole section sang Happy Birthday to you! You were a little shy about it.

After dinner, we came home and you opened presents from Mommy, Daddy, and Uncle Mikey. You got a new comforter for your bed, new cowgirl boots, and a Tinkerbell tea set.

You had a tea party with your baby and bear! You even helped them eat and drink when it came time for that.

You light up my world and can always make me smile! I can't believe you're 3 now! I am excited to see what the future holds for you!

I love you,


(We also have a celebration planned for tomorrow for family and then a pancake pajama party is next weekend!)
