THREE! Today marks 4 1/2 years of Jared, 3 for Annabelle and 10 weeks of Luke! I'm so grateful to be their mother. It's definitely the greatest blessing and challenge of my life; I know Greg would say the same about being their Dad. We're just keeping today low-key because of all of our fun visitors from last week.

Likes: Luke, Jared, Daddy, Mommy, Pink Blankie, anything Disney Princess, anything girly/princessy, singing
Dislikes: anyone bossing her around (especially Jared), going down for a nap,
Favorite Food: If she could have her way, she would eat Mac 'n Cheese every single day for every single meal. Her other minor favorite include strawberries, Hot Dogs, Japanese food
Favorite Toys: Princesses & the Castle and her baby dolls.
Favorite Books: All of her Princess books
Favorite Things to Watch: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, any Disney Princess movie, Shaun the Sheep, Curious George
Other New Tricks: She was finally completely potty-trained just before Luke was born. (Halleujah). She's adjusting really well to being a big sister. After the initial hesitance at their first meeting, Annabelle is my little helper. She even likes to pretend being a mom herself with her baby. She knows the letters in her name and knows how to write 'A'. We'll work on the rest soon.
What's next: Learning how to ride her new bike, writing her name, Sunbeams in January
How she drives us crazy: She's still as stubborn as ever. I'm trying to let her have as much independence (without hurting herself), however the more I give the more she wants. She either absolutely LOVES Jared or does NOT; I know it comes with being close in age. She's also currently trying to get rid of her nap, since Jared did... however, when she doesn't nap... *shivers* everyone knows it.
Why she's so awesome: She is such a SPITFIRE. We all adore her (well, may not Jared) and she knows it. Her independence and intelligence make her so much fun to be around. She knows what she likes and tries to get everyone to like the same. She's a princess, but very adventurous. She's also very sweet and thoughtful (when she slows down). She's definitely a challenge, and I worry constantly if our a-likeness is going to be rough when she's older, but then I try to remember she's three and full of love, spunkiness and fun!
