Third Birthday Interview - 2016

Almost three years ago I interviewed my son for his third birthday, and then ask the same questions every year after.  I am so excited to start this little tradition with Katie.  I am so proud of the little person she is becoming.  She has grown so much this past year; physically, emotionally and mentally.  She used to make me carry her all day and have total meltdowns every time I had to leave the house.  But she is now strong and independent and has such a personality.  She has her own mind and insists on trying everything by herself.  She loves all things girly; including pink, purses, dolls, princesses and lipstick but she will also make lego creations and race hot wheels with her brother.   She is funny and loves to make us laugh, which she does daily.  She gives the best running hugs.  She adores her brother.  I can't even find the words to express how much I love her and how much happiness she brings me.  Every day I love her more than the day before which seems impossible but its not.  I love this phase of life we are entering - there are no more diapers, we can have real conversations and she can tell me what she is feeling; everything is new and exciting and to be explored.  Three year olds are so much fun and this time I get to do it without a tiny baby to take care of too.

I'm so lucky to be his mom,  he brings so much love and joy to our family every single day.  He made me "mom", through him I discovered a passion I never knew I had before, and I've experienced the greatest kind of love I've ever known.  Love you ten thousand hundred moons and back bud!  

Here are a few pics of him taken this January.
