Big Number Three

My girl is three!  Why does this parenting thing have to go so quickly?  It seems like just yesterday we headed to the hospital, and here we are.  I blinked.  But I honestly believed this is my favorite stage so far.  She is just the most fun, creative little girl.  Every day with her is such a blessing.

Here's a look at a few highlights from Emmie's big day!

She woke up to her first (and big) birthday present.  A new kitchen was in order, and I think she's made it pretty clear that she loves it...every spare second between yesterday morning and now has been spent playing there.

Strawberry pancakes for breakfast!

She headed to school, and Noah and I surprised her at snack time with cupcakes for her class.

After that, the three of us headed to Chick Fil A for lunch!

That night, we opened a few more presents from family.

For months, Emmie's only request for her birthday was that we go to Chuck E Cheese.  So there we went.  She even got to meet the mouse himself!

And, at the birthday girl's request, we had "a quesadilla, cheese in a bowl, and milk" for dinner.  Mommy and Daddy weren't arguing with that decision.

Just for good measure, we ended the night with one more birthday cake.  I think that smile pretty much sums up the day!

As we were headed home for the night, she looked at me and said "I've had so much fun today." And I melted right there.

Thanks for the best three years of our lives, baby girl!
