Today you are 3

posted on: 1.20.2010

Miss Tate,
Today you are 3.
Today you weigh 27 pounds and are 35 inches tall, still a peanut
Today you love telling stories, mostly about baby Susie
Today you are the caretaker for many- Baby Susie, Brayda, Jill, Spot, Benny, Benny Jr., Tootie, Dining, and Bon. You name them yourself. They are your best friends
Today you love fishy crackers, pastrami & avocado sandwiches, and mickey mouse pancakes
Today you ask me to cuddle, often
Today you are short, tan, and muscular. Still got that cute pot belly from last year
Today you like to wear stripes, anything with stripes is "cool" you say
Today you are extremely observant, have a keen sense of direction, and remember everything
Today you are independent and persistent
Today you like to wear band aids for your stomach aches, and mentholatum on your lips at night
Today you dance, very freely and without reservation, always taking a bow after
Today you like Cinderella, singing, and cutting paper
Today you adore your friends and cousins
Today you have a quirky smile. Top lip tucked under, nose scrunched
Today you can run fast, and have a sure foot
Today you are sweet, very sweet
Today you like to swim, sled, anything with your daddy, and always outside
Today you are practicing how to ask politely for things, and how to put your clothes on
Today your days are imaginative and full of make believe
Today you like your hair in one pony tail, not two
Today you are shy around strangers
Today you make people smile, on the street, everywhere we go
Today you are the highlight of my day!
I love you Miss Tate, Happy Birthday sweetheart.
