Zoe had been looking forward to her third birthday for a long time. She was so excited when it finally came along.
She had a great birthday. The weekend before, both Grandmas and Grandpas and Aunt Emily came for a birthday party. I asked her what color or theme she wanted for her party and she said that she wanted balloons, so we had a lot of balloons.
Zoe loves birthdays so much because she loves to be the center of attention. It makes her so happy. She got great presents, including a princess nightgown, games, my little ponies, and a microphone and lego rockband (which she calls bandaid).
For Zoe's actual birthday, I had planned to have a friend birthday party. When I asked her what she wanted to do for her birthday though, she said she wanted to go to Katy's house to play. So that's what we did. Katy's mom, Joy, had a great little party for her at their house, full of home-made pizza, purple cupcakes with pink frosting, and more balloons. She had a blast.
It is so hard to believe that my baby girl is now 3 years old. She is growing up so much. She is so tall and little girlish. I have had to start buying her pants in the little girl's department to get them long enough. She has so much personality. She loves to sing and dance. She loves people and will talk to and climb all over, anyone who will pay attention to her. She makes our lives so much fun and interesting. I can't even imagine life without her.
