You are now 40 months old. You are growing with leaps and bounds! you are maturing SO fast socially!
We went on a bowling adventure with your preschool, you had a BLAST. (so did your sisters!) You were pretty excited to see your friends and roll a HUGE ball down the ramp.
Your preschool teachers send pictures every day of the things you are doing and learning. Mostly you love art and getting messy. (which is just what you should be doing at 3!)
You also love learning to help with things like cutting and cooking!
You learned to make applesauce at school! you also love eating it. :)
Building airports and train stations is also a big favorite.
as is playing with water beads or dirt, or splashing in puddles in your wetsuit.
Storytime isn't your favorite, though i don't know why, since you love listening to books at home. Maybe it's because you want to run and jump and get messy.
The rumpus room is a favorite at preschool too! I wish we had a dedicated rumpus room at home, but you make due with the couches and swing in the living room.
You got a new booster seat. You had to give up your mimi (pacifier) and leave it just for bedtime or nap time, but it was a fair trade because a new booster seat is pretty cool.
Train dates are still all the rage. <3
snuggling with you BFF Ruby is one of your favorite things. You both love hot cocoa and chilling under blankets on the couch.
You discovered 'hair goop' and want to use it all the time. There are not enough baths in the world for me to let you have it every day.
I love sleeping with you every night. I may not love the 4 am 'shove my head onto your head' ritual but i do love waking up to your face every day.
Ruby is totally your best friend. Often you fight and annoy each other but there is SO much love between the two of you.
You are still such a mama's girl. As long as you can put your hand in my shirt, you can find comfort.
Most days you get in your pjs as soon as humanly possible. Usually that's long before dinner.
Often you get very very messy before it's actually bedtime. And go through multiple pairs of PJs in a day. Good thing I like doing laundry. ;)
I gave you a hair cut. You looked like a vulcan. Sorry! From now on it's pro cuts only for you!
We went to Plumper Farms to pick out a tree! It was rainy and muddy and a perfect Oregon day.
You guys wanted a big big BIG tree. We chose one the would fit in the house.
We hung all the stockings and decorated the tree and it was a perfect lovely day (with lots of whining and wine)
Then we went to Alpenrose dairy with some friends.
You got stuck in a house.
And were silly with the big kids.
So i threw you all in kid jail.
Then we went to visit Santa.
I swear you guys were having fun, but this was pretty much the best picture ever.
The three of you are such a perfect complete package of sisterhood.
You were not super impressed with Santa either way.
but you certainly loved Ruby's enthusiasm!
You are such a fun kid, my Lucy Mae. You make ma laugh every day, and you make everything so memorable. You are filled with love and laughter at every turn, when you're not screaming and demanding that everything is done EXACTLY as you want it to be. Thankfully you are sometimes relatively flexible (as a middle child needs to be) and you can let your sisters needs be met on occasion. Thank you for reminding me what its like to be in the middle, I grew up there and know it can be hard.
You amaze me every day.
All of my heart, Mama
