The purpose of this blog is to capture some of the high lights and low lights of just normal day to day life. Our life is loud, busy, and fast, but we love it!


Leah's 3rd Birthday

What to say about Leah??? She is a spitfire. Determined to be independent, outspoken, and loud. She is the jokester of the house. Wanting to get the laugh seems to be her goal at dinner each night. She is superverbal and so very smart. I am impressed with what she knows...and I certainly cannot take credit for teaching her. She counts to 10 (sometimes higher), knows almost all her letters and some letter sounds. Shapes, colors, and lots of words to songs. She has an amazing auditory memory.

For her birthday she made her vanilla cake with her Daddy. Vanilla because Cinderella has yellow cake. Leah logic. She wanted a Cinderella birthday theme, but when it came down to it she wanted a "strawberry cake". I think she saw one in the grocery store and fixed on that. It was a hit!

I truly loved watching her open her presents. Such joy and thrill with every card, every inch of paper had to come off before even looking at the gift, and she seemed to use her leg to hold everything up. It was hilarious! I love that even with all the excitement of every gift she would still throw it down ready for the next in line!

For Leah's birthday dinner she wanted Chick-fil-A! A gift for me too! What an extra blessing was the baby cow came out (because they were having a fundraiser night). Awesome!
Here is the sample of pictures I took for Leah's birthday. The only way I got her to do this was because there were ducks, fish, and geese. I could not believe she would look at me and smile. It made my day! She is still not a huge fan of having her picture taken so this went really well. I can't wait to see what comes this next year for our Leah Jo.
