Adelyn is THREE!!!

Three years ago yesterday, we met the baby girl that would complete our little family. She is our little spitfire, the messiest thing I have ever met and a total love bug. She certainly keeps us on our toes and I can't imagine our family without her.



And now the big three!

Here's a little bit more about Adelyn at THREE:

Height: 38 inches
Weight: 33 lbs.

Shoe Size: 9
Clothes: 3t

Sleep: She rarely naps and when does she's up way too late. Her normal bedtime is around 7:30 and she's usually up by 6:00. She still wakes up during the night at least once a week. Usually one of us lays down with her for a few minutes and she goes right back to sleep.

Favorite Sayings:
What in the world?
That's making me nervous.
I'm getting frustrated.
Nobody knows
Play with me, sissy.
You nice, momma.
Can I play just two minutes?
Will you lay down with me?
I want to watch nothing else or I want to watch nothing on your phone. (I don't have the heart to tell her it's something but I think it's just the cutest.)
I'm sorry, momma.

She calls peanut butter peter butter.

She can say the P sound most of the time but sometimes substitutes it with a T. She says Penny just fine but calls Parker Tarker.

More about Adelyn:
She is pretty much impossible to photograph. She closes her eyes and puts her chin up or moves to much that the entire pictures is a blur.

She can't eat a meal without getting it all over her clothes, the table, and possibly the wall.

She has to eat breakfast the minute she wakes up.

She's known to sneak into the pantry for snacks throughout the day. We've honestly been considering getting a lock for it because our snack stash disappears in a matter of days.

She loves to help in the kitchen. She puts silverware aways and loves helping me cook or bake.

She has two small pieces of a swaddle blanket that she calls her blankies. She has to have them for bedtime.

When she plays she has to dump out the entire bucket of toys.

She can recognize about 5 letters of the alphabet and has no interest in learning the rest.

She plays rough and rarely gets hurt. We always tell Emerson she better be nice to her now because once she's bigger she'll be able to beat her up.

She can be quite stubborn and once she makes up her mind about something there is no going back.

She is wild at home but she is usually more shy and reserved around others.

She loves to go to Target and walk around. She usually behaves very well in stores as long as I let her walk and look at what she wants to look at.

When she's tired she gets wild and rough.  We've learned not to go out to eat or run any errands after 4:30 if she hasn't had a nap.

Her favorite shows are Daniel Tiger, Curious George and she loves kids videos on You Tube.

Her favorites foods are oatmeal, cheese, carrots, and pretty much any kind of snack you can buy.

 That girl is just a mess but man do we love her! She has a heart of gold and the funniest little personality. She brought a whole new dynamic to our family and it has been such a blessing watching her grow. Happy, Happy Birthday sweet Adelyn Elise. We love you to the moon and back!!!
