"3" is a Big Deal!

Today, my daughter turned three.  Three years doesn't sound like it should be that big of a deal, but when it comes to kids, there is a lot packed into such a short period of time.  

This year, we decided to have a big party since it will be her last birthday as an only child, daddy is home, and she "gets" the meaning of a birthday party this year.

Daddy requested that there be no pink, so Emmy and I decided to have a ladybug party.  I planned for about six weeks and even though it didn't turn out quite like I had imagined it would, it was great both Emmy and I were dog tired by the end of the day.

The cake was made by Caleb's best friend's girlfriend, Beth.  Not only was it very detailed, but it was delicious!

When it was time for us to sing "Happy Birthday" Emmy was so excited that she blew the candles out before the song was over.

And, maybe because she was just ready to devour some of the cake for herself.

after eating cake, Emmy got to open up her presents.  The "no pink" request didn't carry over onto the presents, but Emmy seemed to love it all and has been having a blast playing one toy and then the other all day long.

For part of her birthday present from Ama, she got her favorite, ring pops!  She just had to have a blue one and by the end of the party she had a blue mouth for all the photos.  I love her little thumbs up!

I was glad to have some great friends there to celebrate Emmy with us, Ashley, Katie Beth, Bethany, and Elizabeth.  I think it is so great that the love we have for each other, has been passed down to our children.

And, here is the blue mouth making an appearance again for a family photo.

As we were leaving, Porter and Emmy were playing.  She let him have a lick of her ring pop (gross, but we are trying to teach her about sharing, maybe we should be a little more specific about what is appropriate to share with others : )

Well, then Porter laid one on Emmy - just like she did to him last year on his birthday.  It was the sweetest thing, and great blackmail for when they are both older!

What a difference a year makes!

I love this girl so much and I can't believe God is blessing us with another.  The kid inside me has one awesome big sister!
