Dear Elise,

This past Sunday, you turned 3. It does not seem possible. You grow leaps and bounds every day and sometimes it seems to be impossible for us to keep up with you. Here is what you are up to:

•Vitals: You are 39 inches tall and weigh 28.8lbs.

•Eating: You are pretty much a vegetarian, with the exception of chicken in nugget form and ham. You are still a nibbler and love to graze all day long. Your treat of choice is a doughnut. And everything is better with ranch...you love the stuff!

•Sleeping: You take an afternoon nap and are down for bed by 8. Most nights though you chatter away to "Baby" and "Girl" until 9...like clockwork! Lately you have become a bit of a staller, yelling that you need to poop (you are potty trained except for night time) or that you can't "see" your "Baby" and "Girl".

•Wearing: You are in mostly 3T with a few 2T items hanging on. You are tall so extra length is needed for most things. You are about over bows and pull them out as soon as we put them in.  You also want to take your shoes off as soon as we are in the car...you are a sneaky booger and if we say that you can't take your shoes off, you settle for taking the laces out...

•Talking: ALL. DAY.LONG. and with a vocabulary that never ceases to amaze me. Dr. Pontzer always comments on your speaking ability and warns us that we are in trouble and we better hang on for the ride! Your favorite right now? Why? Everything is met with a "Why?"

•What You Love: Anything crafty, going to school and church, your friends - Piper is still your bestie, dancing, making sure your dresses twirl, when Mommy brings a treat home from work, your new bike, playing with cold water in the bathtub, your new umbrella, parties, Big Hero 6, and superheroes.

•What We Love: ALL OF YOU! Even the occasional threenager drama. Your hugs and kisses are the best! You are our most favorite girl!

Mommy (and Daddy!)

Happy 3rd Birthday to Elise!! I love that she's sneaky and when you tell her not to take off her shoes, she takes out the laces instead... hee hee!! She sounds like quite a wonderful little character, I can only imagine how much fun you are having with her! Looking forward to seeing what she gets up to this year... :)

I cannot believe she is already 3!! It's amazing how fast the time flies isn't it? I hear ya on the non-stop talking all day. Piglet is a chatterbox too. It's adorable, but sometimes I'm like, "sweetie let me get my coffee first!!"
Heheh, I love that she takes her laces out. That's very sneaky, but you have to admire how clever it is too!
