Dear Lucy Mae,
You are now 38 months old, and you are SOMETHING ELSE. By this I mean you are beyond cute and funny and ridiculous, you are just something else entirely.
We had a dinner party with Chloe and her mama Jamie. (Ruby was in the other room during this picture), we had a lot of fun and you certainly love your sisters friends as much as she does! (well we all do)
You love swinging. Somedays I think you would stay on the swing at the playground the entire day if I would let you.
You love taking your baby sister down the slide, and I finally captured a picture of you both looking happy.
You decided you wanted to learn how to cut with a knife, and now you help make dinner any chance you get. You're a pretty serious little chef!
You tried you hand (or foot?) at 'soccer' with your buddy Kiran. I thought you were going to be totally into it, but 5 minutes later you were bored and wanted to go to the playground. You're a kid who knows what you like!
This series of photographs perfectly sums up our family unit right now. You're bit of a trouble maker.
You are LOVING pre school. One day Arwyn came and taught you all about massage.
Then I came to school and told your class all about being a doctor (and how your body turns food into poop!)
You like to wash your feet in the sink, and one day decided to put your whole body in. You are pretty silly.
The house next door was demolished to make way for a newer (much nicer and less moldy) home. You thought the process was pretty cool.
You got your dump truck out and decided to try your hand an construction. It was pretty cute.
Then you decided to teach Mabel how to play ball. She needs some time to practice.
One night after taco tuesday, you and Cormac put on matching pajamas and it was the most exciting thing all day. You are SO into figuring out how people are the same or different. (you really like it when we are the same, and when it comes down to it, isn't that what life is about? figuring out that we are all just the same but slightly different?)
We went to the pumpkin patch with your preschool buddies. You did the slides a million times
And we went on a couple hay rides
The corn maze lost your interest after a few minutes
Somedays you REALLY need to be close to mama. Those days can be harder than others (especially for my back)
You love working in the garden, especially picking vegetables! We grew lots of things but potatoes lasted the longest (and involved the most dirt digging.)
Your nana came for a long visit. Believe it or not you had a lot of fun, so much fun you fell asleep while reading books.
My darling Lu-Bear, You are my favorite three year old in the whole world. You love singing your way through each day and playing silly games. You love asking silly questions and making up silly answers. You say the MOST ridiculous things like "You're being necessarily!" (and no i have no idea what that means.) You are funny and smart and so very loving. You are fiercely independent and yet such a mama's girl.
I could not love you more.
All my heart, Mama
