Now We Are Three

Well almost. Tomorrow is actually my little one's third birthday but we squeezed in a tiny little celebration for our tiny little family yesterday before the work week took over. Happily it was quite a success with the party girl.

We did a little something each day of the long weekend to get ready. She helped with the preparations including cutting the flowers, wrapping her presents and trying to light the candles of her cake. (Suddenly, I had a fear she might start taking an interest in matches. Something else to worry about.) I think that is what she was most looking forward to - blowing the candles out on her cake and making a wish.

I'm constantly amazed at the things she picks up. We certainly spoke about singing "Happy Birthday" and blowing out the candles but I never mentioned making a wish to her. Sure enough she found out somewhere. I was about to light the candles and she declared "I'm going to blow out candles and make a wish." She did pretty well (with some help), so I hope she gets her wish. I'm not even sure she knows what a wish is but who knows. I can only wonder what my little three year old wished for. I made a wish too, but it's a secret.

She is so cute and looks excited about her big day. My youngest grandchild turned 13 in June. It is hard to believe she is that old.

So adorable! I hope all of your wishes come true. I love that she helped prep her party, too! She will want to help more and more with things, now that she is getting to be such a big girl.

Belle, I know the time flies so fast. I'll be facing the teen years soon enough! I have to say I am hoping for and looking forward to grandchildren one day in the distant future. I think being a grandparent is one of the greatest things.

Hi Liz,

Thanks! It was just practical to have her help. She rarely naps so trying to surprise her is really difficult. She knew there was a soccer ball in her present but I was able to set up the table when she wasn't looking and she was so happy when she walked into the kitchen.

You are right about her wanting to help more and more. She asks "Can I try?" or tells me "I help" all the time. It's really sweet.

And I hope all of our wishes come true!

The picture of her looking at her cake is sooo cute, it has all the joy in the world. I remember when my youngest turned three, we had invited a few neighbours for cake, but I had to cancel as I got chicken pox! But her face lit up when we brought out the cake and the presents and it was worth a million bucks! I was so sick I forgot to take a picture, but I can still see her face!
