Picking Strawberries

Picking strawberries with daddy!

Samantha Updates

Samantha is a very independent three year old. At times this can be tough but it will serve her well. I would like her to suspend it a bit for potty training though!!!! She is stubborn and doesn't want underwear because "they let the pee out." She's missing something here.

She loves princesses and ponies although almost all ponies are called unicorns. She is very into what is for girls and what is for boys. I'm not sure where that is coming from but she is always telling me whether a show is for girls or boys and which toys are for girls and boys. I've tried telling her that they can be for both but she is adamant!

She is recognizing some letters lately and doing very well at counting. She sings all the time and there is something very cute about her little voice singing Beyonce.

Happy 3rd Birthday

Happy Birthday big girl!

I can't believe 3 years have gone by so fast. You are all things princess and unicorns and are constantly wearing tiaras or other jewelery. Even still your personality is so strong. You know what you want and aren't afraid to say it. You play so well with Dominic and it is obvious how much you love him.

I love your hugs and the way you say "my mommy" as you give me a good squeeze. I love your imagination and the way you know the words to songs after only hearing them a time or two. I love listening to you sing and hope you keep it up!

I am so proud of you little girl.

I love you so much! Happy 3rd Birthday!


Princess Birthday!!

What other theme could Samantha's third birthday have but "princess"? It was a wonderful party and Samantha had so many wonderful friends come. She had a great time playing with Jorja, Finley, Evie, Leanne, Mei Mei and even though she didn't want boys to come to her party I think she was ok with Adam and Ahmad there. And of course Gee & Papa and the Connors family was a great treat. She even spoke to Hillary, the fact that Hillary gave her a Sleeping Beauty dress probably helped.
