How in the world am I mother of a 3 year old?

Three really seems so old. I know I know... I say that every time I come to sit and write these posts, but its so true. 2 is still toddlerhood, but 3 is a preschooler and before I know it Grace will be walking up the steps to Kindergarten. And even then I'll wonder where the time went and how she can be so big and grown up.
So much has changed in one year.
Grace you have gone from putting 2 words together (barely) to saying full sentences with 6+ words... although not all those words are understood by all.
You have gained a little sister. You are far better a big sister than I could have even imagined. You are so sweet and caring and you always want to know where she is and what she is doing. You love her and I know that despite the screaming matches you have that one day you will be best buds.
You also became potty trained this year... Woo Hoo! You are just down to wearing a diaper at night time although I think those days might be short lived.
You favorite things to do these days are playing games like Memory or riding your bike outside. You just love to do anything really... arts and crafts, going to the park, you love story time at the library and you LOVE school. You also love reading new books so we are always trying to add to our collection.
This year you also developed a little attitude. You know what you want and you wont stop till you get it. In the same breath you know where the time out spot is and you know that mom isn't afraid to send you there. :)
Overall though, you are the sweetest little 3 year old I know. You just have this little infectious smile and personality that draw people close to you. I love you more and more each day!

So my first baby is 3. Another year gone by and another one to look forward to. Now we are off to enjoy the rest my little Valentine's day :)
Happy Valentine's Day! Hope you are having a nice day with the ones you love :)
