3 going on 13

My baby girl is growing up.  It KILLS me that she is turning four this year! But as much as I loved her baby rolls, her soft pudgy feet, watching her miraculously balance on those chunky legs and take her first steps, I have to admit that I’m enjoying this stage too.  She never fails to amaze me… the things that come out of her mouth!!!  The “mini mommy” attitude she tries to pull on her little brother, the way she has become so very convincing when she wants to stay up at night “just 3 more seconds”- I so enjoy our time together as I feel like my role in her life is changing as much as she is.  She doesn’t need me like she used to, not for diaper changes and feedings, but more for assurance and guidance.  I realized my influence on her when I picked her up from school this week and as usual she did not want to go home yet, and what was her reply when I asked her where she’d like to go??  “Target”!!!  She knows my weakness- how can I say “no” to that!! and the funny thing is that I think she likes walking the aisle looking at all the stuff and chatting with her mommy even more than the stickers she gets to go home with.

I hope everyone has a very happy Valentine’s day!  and I’ll leave with this little piece of wisdom from the mouth of a 3 year old…

as Avery and I were in the car driving home one night, she spotted a house with Christmas lights up… yes… this happened this month.  She of course is “Look mommy!!!! They still have their Christmas lights up!!!”  then she thinks for a minute and says “they must not have gotten their presents yet.”   So Santa… PLEASE bring those poor people their presents already so they can take down their lights ;)
