It is hard to believe my baby girl is 3. Have I really been a mommy for 3 years? I can't even begin to explain the way that precious little girl has changed my life. There has definitely been some tough and frustrating times as we learn the best way to teach, discipline and love our little girl. There have also been amazing hugs, sweet words, too much laughter, and more love than I thought was possible.
3 years old!
2009 she's ONE 2008
Although I have to admit that the fussing and whining can get a little overwhelming at times, overall I would not say that the 2's were terrible. I have enjoyed watching my baby grow into a little girl. She has learned so much recently and conversations with her are almost always entertaining and interesting. Isabel can recognize all of her letters and even knows some sounds. She can recognize her numbers (through 10) most of the time and counts EVERYTHING. Over the past few months we have begun the imaginary friend stage which has been fun for us and confusing for poor Will who is constantly looking around to see who she is talking too or whose hand she is holding. Isabel fits a lot of the first born stereotype. She is a little bossy at times and likes to think that she is everyone's mommy! She loves going to school and playing with her friends there. She loves her little brother but sharing toys can be difficult for everyone! Isabel loves singing and dancing. She sings songs she knows or makes up her own and feels that the best songs are those with motions. She is still a little timid when it comes to certain things but for the past month she has been telling us all the things she won't be afraid of when she is 3. We'll see how that goes.
We love our little girl and are so proud of her. Bring on the threes!!
