Happy Birthday, Summer Renee!





Three years ago today, our lives changed forever.























You are the most amazing three-year-old. You surprise us countless times a day with how smart you are. You can speak clearly in sentences. You even try to correct yourself when you don't say your "l's" right. You love animals, watching Little Bear and Barney, playing with your Barbies, and playing with your little sister. You love trips to the park, where you run around with all the other kids, sliding and swinging. You love to go to the zoo. You just watched your first real movie, Monsters Inc., and loved it, because it's about "nice monsters", unlike the kind you think are in your room that you make me spray with Monster Spray every night before bed. You love to play outside, especially with the hose. You just learned to swim with a float at the pool and love your new-found freedom. You are very innovative and determined. You will figure out how to get exactly what you want, no matter what it takes. You love your Doll, and recently stopped using pacifiers! You really enjoy dancing and pretending to be a "ballanina". You sing lots of songs, you know all of your colors, and you know your ABC's. You can even recognize most numbers and letters! You love for Daddy or I to read you stories. You are very independent, but also love to be near us and do what we are doing. You have been potty-training since you were 18 months old, but still want nothing to do with it. Your favorite foods seem to be chicken and cheerios. You almost always clean your plate. You love sweets and will do anything for a cookie.

Summer... You are what made me a mommy, and you will always be my baby girl, even though you would rather be a "big girl". This next year will be a great one as you continue to learn and grow. We love you!!
