We had a great time celebrating Hannah’s 3rd birthday this year. We started off the day right with some special French toast with sprinkles (or “sparklies”). She really just had the sprinkles for breakfast. She picked them all off and left the French toast. Oh well, it was her birthday.
(side note: Her hair is always a little wild in the mornings)
After breakfast she opened a few presents from us. Nathan was really excited about this part.
I mean, REALLY excited!
After presents we had a special morning visiting the zoo and then meeting Scott at the Botanic Gardens for a picnic lunch. Hannah is all about picnics right now. She likes carrying the blanket and finding the perfect spot to sit.
We went into a special part of the gardens to feed the fish.
And afterwards, we stopped at DQ for a special birthday treat. Hannah loves “banilla” ice-cream.
Hannah Mae, you are one special little girl!
At your 3 year check-up you weighed in at 27 lbs and were 36 3/4” tall. That puts you in about the 45 percentile.
You are so observant (you get that from your dad) and your memory is amazing (also from your dad). You still love playing dress-up and layering all your dresses on top of each other. Most of the time you are in about 5 dresses, high heels, several necklaces and bracelets, a crown, a wand and a purse. You need to teach your momma how to accessorize!
You also ask LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of questions. I try my best not to answer you with “because I said so,” but after about ten questions, I can’t keep coming up with answers!
You are acting a little more shy and cautious as you enter your third year, but once you warm up, you do just fine. You also still like to sing. You can hear a song one time and have it memorized. And if you don’t know the words, you make them up. We spend a lot of our time just singing and dancing around the house.
We love you so much sweet Hannah! You’re a wonderful blessing to our family.
