Well, my baby girl "Ishy" turned three today and it is such a bittersweet moment!  Since her emergency C-section, due date birth, this child has given us a major run for our money!  She is so sweet and kind, so hyper and stubborn, really she is my Jekyl and Hyde girl!  She makes life interesting and fun - she has the most contagious laugh you will ever hear, and she is a girl who knows what she wants, how to get what she wants, and what to do to get what she wants immediately!  While this may be tough to deal with as her mother, I am confident that these personality traits will serve her well in the future.  I know that I am raising a girl who is going to make a difference in this world - she doesn't accept no for an answer - and while that's tough dealing with trying not to give her cookies at dinner time, who knows where this will take her in the future.....  Three seems to have hit me hard today - I marvel at the things she has done - albeit in her own time - such as sitting, rolling, walking, talking, potty training, making friends, etc - she has mastered all of these skills (some of which I really didn't think would ever happen - didn't walk until 21 months and just potty trained 2 weeks ago!!)  My baby turning three has the hubby and I playing with the word three.....as in do we want to do the 3 kids thing??  We actually sat after dinner and talked about this - we tend to talk around it a lot, but I was somewhat surprised that we are both getting "baby fever" as we watch our baby grow in leaps and bounds.  However, timing isn't great, money isn't great, yada yada yada.  Will we ever add a "three" to our clan?  I hope so...but I honestly don't have the answer to that question.... and while we're talking about three....my Ishy has told me and everyone else all day that she is four - wonder what that means!??!?!?!?!


  1. i can't believe she is 3 already! time is flying by. hope she had a wonderful birthday. did she have a party?
    and yes, i am sure you'll add a "3" to your family!

  2. Happy Birthday Ishy!! It just around that same time (when our baby turned 3) that we really started on the quest for our #3! So of course, I say go for it! Our timing and money have never been great, LOL. We've just given up on that. If we had waited for those things to be lined up, we wouldn't have any kids at all! :-)
