My girl is three!
My sweet, sassy, spunky girl is growing up by the minute and she has quite the personality.
Sawyer's birthday fell on a Monday this year and we had a doctor's appointment first thing in the morning for her well check and more importantly, to get her ears pierced. We had been talking about it for months. She was adamant about getting purple earrings. When I told her the doctor didn't have purple, she was ok with getting gold like mine. We made a deal that when she turned 3, she was going to be a big girl so she could have earrings, but she couldn't have pies (pacifiers) anymore because big girls don't use pies. I kept asking her what we were going to do with her pies on her birthday - because I wasn't sure she really knew what it meant that she wasn't going to have them anymore - and she would just say throw "them in the trash!"
The morning, we decided to take them to the doctor to give them to the babies and she would trade them in for earrings.
She did great! She weighed 32 pounds, was 38 inches tall and refused to do the eye test. But she walked out of there with 2 gold earrings - at one point I thought she might only walk out with one...
We went next door to pick up donuts to take to my parents house; my grandparents were still in town from Thanksgiving so we wanted to celebrate with them.
We then went to take donuts to Becky's house and see the girls. When we got home and it was nap time, the first thing she said was "I need my pie"........... which, fortunately, didn't last long.
We had plans to go to Zoo Lights that night with family instead of doing a birthday party, but it was a gross, rainy day so we changed the plans to a PJs, Chocolate Milk & Cookies party last minute and invited everyone to our house instead. It turned out to be a great little get together and Sawyer had a wonderful time!
This has been such a fun year with Sawyer. She pushes our buttons and tests her limits (often) but she is so sweet and is always wanting to help me with everything I am doing. She is such a great big sister and is so obsessed with Ty, she is always trying to make him laugh and bringing him toys. She loves to play pretend, she is always the mom and her animals are her kids. She loves going to school and speaks a lot of Spanish, according to her teachers. She won't speak much in front of us but she totally understands. She loves all things princess and sparkly and purple. She is getting really into art and coloring and loves to watch movies - princess ones of course. She is very opinionated, talks constantly and likes to pick out her clothes and decide how she will wear her hair that day. We love her and her giant personality more and more every day, it is so fun to watch her grow and wait for the next crazy thing she will say!
