She is three.

Hannah Kate, you are three years old today! Oh, how the years go by . . .

When you were born, you had the poutiest lips! And you didn't hardly open your eyes for a week. I remember thinking you were going to be such a good sleeper. You were not! I've loved you so very much ever since the day I first laid eyes on you . . . but even before then, too. You stole parts of my heart that you Daddy and Mason didn't already have. Those days in the hospital with you were very precious to me. And the days to come, even more so!You started walking when you were 10 months old, and you were a spunky monkey. Still are! You grew to love baby dolls and high heels and dress up clothes. After you turned one, we left Mississippi and lived with PawPaw and MawMaw for awhile. You shared a room with Mason for nearly a year and a half. You love your big brother. You also love your cousin Abbie. She came over and played with you a lot during those days.I have loved loved LOVED you as a two-year-old! And I have enjoyed our time together while Mason has been at school. Sometimes I wish I could keep you just as you are right now. I love reading books to you and being served at your tea parties and dressing your baby dolls and fixing your hair. I love the way you sit on my vanity when I'm drying my hair and brush your hair until I'm finished. I love watching you make faces at yourself in the mirror. You like to stick your tongue out at yourself! I love how you always ask for lipstick. You are so smart! You know your ABCs, you can count to almost 20 and you even know some rhyming words. I love to hear you sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Your favorite color is pink. You love to watch Olivia. She reminds me a lot of you actually. But most of all, I love your hugs and your kisses. And I love it when you tell me, "I love you."And now you are three. I don't quite know what to say . . . except that I'm looking forward to every minute of it! I love you!
