well, mimi's birthday was on sunday and i am now officially the mother of a three-year-old. for some reason, three seems so much older than two. two-year-olds still have chubby fingers and feet, baby voices, and need help with almost everything. practically overnight, mimi seems to have grown a foot and her body has lost most of it's baby fat. she looks like a big kid now. and she can put on her own shirt and stand on one foot like a flamingo (trust me, these are both a big deal.) it's bittersweet. my baby is growing up, becoming her own person, distancing herself a (tiny) bit from me and jim, becoming more independent. it is sad in a way, but i also love seeing her grow and bloom and flourish. i love seeing the girl she is becoming. i love that she is finding her own interests. she loves to read, she loves doing art projects, she loves batman (
sometimes most of the time, she is batman. seriously. i call her mimi and she looks at me like i am crazy and says, "um, i'm not mimi. i'm batman.") she loves star wars. (okay, so some of these interests are heavily influenced by a certain parent...*cough cough*...jim.) she loves to sing and dance. she dresses herself now and almost always wears her rain boots, even on the sunniest days. she is so beautiful and so smart and so funny and surprises me every day with the things she says. and, yes, she is growing up, but she will always be my sweet, baby girl. i love her so so so much. i am so lucky and so happy and so blessed that she was brought into my world three years ago. she made me a mommy, and that is my absolute favorite thing to be!
