My big three are 3!

Happiest of birthdays to the three coolest brand-new-three year olds I know.You made a splash from the beginning and we've been attempting to keep our heads above water ever since. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚ I can't imagine not having you as "the babies" but you're turning into such big kids!

-

Jack- you and Stella have some weird language and just get each other. Your favorite color is yellow and you can point out a tractor and a bus from MILES away. If your sisters want to watch Peppa pig, you want to watch Doc McStuffins, and you're a master at taking everything that is theirs just to watch them flip out. You're a head taller than the girls but thin as a rail. You literally never stop falling. I don't know if it's because your head is a watermelon? But damn, kid. Learn to fall on your butt and not your head soon, k? You've been fully potty trained from the first day we started and will ALWAYS give mamma kisses when requested. you also go through toddler PMS and have a week every month where you're the crabbiest kid ever. But we love you so. πŸ’›

-

Clara Jane. Clarita. Cookie. Beara. - you're the only kid I know who comes up with the weirdest nicknames and refuses to accept her name is anything else. You're obsessed with all things pink, you'll always take your clothes off if acceptable, and you take pride in being able to swindle your dad into ANYTHING. You'll pretend to be "sick" if it means you get special alone time, but most of the time you're always the one who is sick. You request your pink princess dress every morning during playtime and love playing mama to Stella. YOU ARE SO LOUD. You have no concept of whispering. You also stomp every where you go but are the lightest of all three. Your memory is shocking. You let nothing slip by us. When you pick favorites, they're favorites for life. You're definitely our sweet princess, baby girl. πŸ’—

-

Olivia. (Cupcake, Liv, sissy-- all names given to you by Clara) - you are a mystery. Will you be sweet? Will you be a mess? We never know, but when you decide to be a mess you take us all down with you. You are the sole child who determines if getting ready in the morning will be a joyful 15 mins or 3 miserable hours. You must have all the purple things. Your favorite activity is to cuddle with daddy and you're always the little spoon. If you sleep in mammas bed one night you're pretty sure you'll sleep there the rest of your life. You're SO FUNKY about how clothes fit. I have to "fix" the toes of your socks every day, pants cannot come up to your belly button, and LORD HELP US if we zip something that you wanted to zip. The intentional-ness of your actions is fairly shocking for your age. You've finally decided that you MAY like your siblings and have been the sweetest for a few weeks now, so let's continue that, ok? Daddy always tells me that we clash sometimes because you're my clone. I have to say, you're a pretty freakin adorable clone. πŸ’œ

I can't wait to spend tomorrow celebrating the big 3 for my big 3! πŸ’ my heart is so full!!! When I was pregnant I bought a book for each kid call "20 questions." It's 20 questions to ask your kids on their birthday every year. It starts when they're THREE!!!! I can FINALLY use one of my FAVORITE THINGS I bought when on hospital bedrest!
