My baby is 3

Three.  Wow, what a big number.  When did three years happen so fast?  Wasn't is just yesterday she was born?  Learning to smile, trying to crawl?  Mastering walking?  When did she become so talented, so funny, so beautiful?  When did babbling become full sentences?  When did the baby go away and this little girl show up?  Sometime in the last three years.

On August 22nd, Kaylee turned three.  A happy 3 year old, full of spunk.  Full of energy, smart (too smart), laughs more than anything.

This light of our life really makes things good.  Her antics that "work" her room, her smile that lights up everything, her little boston accent that makes others smile.  Her determination that makes her want to try, and those blue eyes who seek help when she needs it.  This little girl, all grown up.  

The next year is big for my baby.  She starts pre-school tomorrow and a new chapter in her book opens.  New friends, new teachers, new learnings ahead.  Knowing how much has changed and grown in the past three years, I'm excited and nervous to see what the next three bring.  Happy Birthday baby girl, I love you.

She seems too little to be going to preschool and act all grown up..tell her to just stop it!
