Turning 3

My little girl is turning three tomorrow. I can't believe it. Part of me feels as though she's been a part of my life forever, and another part can't believe it has only been three years! Kind of reminds me of marriage. I honestly can't imagine my life without my husband or my children. God has richly blessed me, without a doubt!

For my daughter's first birthday we were visiting my folks and my mother graciously baked and decorated a 1st birthday cake for her. Then, for her second birthday I made cupcakes and, I must admit, somewhat downplayed the whole birthday thing. She was only two afterall, she hardly knew what a birthday was! But now, she has been talking about her birthday for a couple of weeks now. I don't think I could get away with downplaying her birthday now! Despite my tiredness and feeling unmotivated to really do anything in this early pregnancy, I found myself excited to bake and decorate her a cake this year! I was probably 10 or 11 the last time I actually decorated a cake with a piping bag, but I thought it would be fun to try again. It was! We are not doing a birthday party with a gazillion toddler friends or anything crazy like that, but we will celebrate it with family after church tomorrow.
Yay to children everywhere turning three, and for helping keep their parents young and enthusiastic about the simple things in life!
