It is hard to believe that you are three years old today! I remember when you were born…you were such an easy baby! You smiled as soon as you were born, and Oh! Your hair! What beautiful hair you have always had!
You were so good to us newbie parents, sleeping through the night and eating well! I had people stop me all the time out in public to compliment you. You were the friendliest, most beautiful baby they had ever seen! (See? It wasn’t just me who thought so!)
And you have always been such a little ham! You remind me of Loo Loo when she was little. You love making faces, being silly and looking at yourself in the mirror!
Jayna, you already have such a kind soul. You make friends very easily, and have always been good at sharing your toys. You can be very sensitive though….you sometime will get upset just because someone else is crying! We still have to monitor what you see on TV very closely, because if a character is upset-you start crying too! And what a little tattle-tale you can be! You come home from school with stories of the “bad boys.” I know exactly who sat in time out, who didn’t share, and who had accidents in school each day!
I am so proud of your short little life already! You never cease to amaze me with your smart-alec comments that most would only think could come out of a 12 year old’s mouth! You are so smart, and are so independent….insisting on doing everything yourself. I can’t believe that not only do you know all of your letters, sounds and numbers…you can also copy almost all of the letters of the alphabet and write your name! And aren’t you a child of the times…you can work my smartphone better than I can!! And although we certainly have our “toddler” moments, you are truly a joy to be around (most of the time!).
I love how kind you are to your little sister….you always have her needs in mind and are quick to babysit her or help feed her. You are so gentle (most of the time) and so affectionate with her! I hope you two are always best friends and continue to help and love each other unconditionally.
Jayna, your love for God makes my soul so glad….although you may not know what it means completely, your heart is so pure! I love and admire how you crave knowledge about God and how appreciative you are already for all He has given you! I’m always so touched when I catch you praying with Elly, or when I see you helping a friend or showing your gratitude.
Long story short, I can’t believe you are already three years old….and I can’t believe you are only three years old! It has been such fun watching you grow so far, and I can’t wait to continue watching you turn into a kind, smart, beautiful little girl! Happy Birthday Buggy! I love you!
