Elise: Three & A Half

Dear Elise,

You are 3 1/2 (actually 3 years and 7 months, but Mommy is running a little late with this post!) Every day we see a little more of who you are going to be. Here is what you are up to:

•Vitals: You are 41 inches tall and weigh 33.2lbs.

•Eating: Some days yes, some days no. You are still a nibbler and love to graze all day long. And you have definitely inherited a love of condiments from your Daddy, you would dip everything if we let you! Carrots with ranch is always your snack of choice.

•Sleeping: You still take an afternoon nap, but are getting ready to go to day camp for the summer, 3 days a week, and there is no nap time, so not sure what that might change. And you are still the world's best bedtime staller....you've added in a back scratch request that I cannot turn down. And when I try to leave, you lean in and whisper, "let's talk for 1 more minute..."

•Wearing: You are in mostly 3T with a few 4T items thrown in. Your legs are impossibly long and make finding summer clothes super hard. You can undress yourself with no problems, but are still getting the hang of the dressing part.

•Talking: ALL. DAY.LONG. You have a newfound love for making up your own words that make absolutely no sense, but it is pretty funny. You love to quote Beauty and the Beast and Big Hero 6 word for word.

•What You Love: Water play outside, swimming lessons (finally!), going to school and church, your friends, making sure your dresses twirl, lip gloss and hairspray, family adventures - no matter how small, parties, Tumbleleaf, superheroes, candy, painting with watercolors, flamingoes, and pretend play.
•What We Love: ALL OF YOU! Even the occasional threenager drama. Your hugs and kisses are the best! Your heart for others is beginning to emerge and I love it. You are our most favorite girl!

Mommy (and Daddy!)

Oh I cannot believe how big she is! She's just adorable. My threenager is so similar, especially the nibbling instead of really eating, and the full on bedtime stall. I love the "Let's talk for one more min" I mean how can you resist that? It's like when Piglet says, "One more huggy!" Piglet is super into pretend play. It's such a fun age, even with the threenager drama. :-)
