Happy Birthday Constance

Constance Elizabeth, you are 3 years old today. Wow! I want to rejoice and I feel a slight twinge of sadness. You are getting older. You are growing and changing every day. You started out as a not-so-tiny 9 pound 6 ounce 20 1/4 inch long baby and now you are talking in full sentences, know just about 1/2 of the alphabet and love to sing!

I never knew how much love my heart could hold until I became a mommy. One day when you are grown, I hope you will get to experience that love as well when you become a mommy.

You amaze me Constance. I get to experience life through your eyes. And everything is new to you. The moon and stars excite you! You never get tired of hearing the song, "The People on the Bus." You love to color and make up conversations between your stuffed animals and baby dolls and ponies. And what an imagination you have! Just recently we had to throw on clothes and go outside in the cold because your imaginary baby bird flew out the unopened window! You would not be satisfied till we captured your baby bird and returned him back in the house with his mommy and daddy.

You like to do things the same way every time. If your sippy cup is sitting on one side of your plate and at some point it is moved to the other side it must immediately be brought back to the original place it was. While we work on the computer at your favorite site StarFall, you always pick the exact same eyes, nose, hat, arms and buttons for the Build Your Own Snowman. Always.

You love chicken, bananas, grapes and strawberries. You have such a sweet tooth but especially love brownies and ice cream. You also love pizza.

You can count to 30 and know all your colors. You love, love, love to read. Right now you are into Clifford the Big Red Dog, Maisy Mouse, The Magic School Bus, The Bearenstein Bears and your ABC's books.

You have a few really good friends and ask about them constantly. You think playgrounds are the greatest thing ever and always go for the biggest slide and like to swing really high.

You love to color!

This year I am looking forward to watching you grow and learn even more than what you already do. I love that you like the song Jesus Loves Me and say that God loves you. I look forward to teaching you more about Jesus and His love for you. I look forward to you learning all of your alphabet letters, more numbers and hopefully you will start using the potty soon!

Always remember that your daddy and I love you with all of our hearts. You are such a blessing to us and are a great addition to our family. We can not imagine life without you. You are smart, beautiful, passionate and silly. Happy 3rd Birthday my sweet girl. You are so very special and so very much loved.
