millie jean is 3!

To my beautiful, sweet Emilia


I can't believe you're 3 today!

My precious little baby has grown up too fast!

Those gorgeous blue eyes that took my breath away when you were just a baby...


...still do so today!

And although your Nana Lois has brown eyes, 


you bare a striking resemblance to her:

How quickly you've gone from destroying puzzles

to mastering them!
I dub you the Puzzle Queen!

You are such a good sister to Addie and Tate.

You love to giggle with your big sister.

The two of you have way too much fun together.  I never knew siblings could get along so well.

Probably your favorite thing to do together is read.
You love to copy Addie's reading by making up your own stories.  And you come up with some very creative stories!

You love to make your baby brother laugh.
You get a kick out of chasing each other around the house, crawling as fast as you can.

You say the funniest things.

You recently came up with the word "shoe-foot."  When you saw that we had our shoes on you said, "I'm barefoot, but you guys are shoefoot."  And it has stuck.  Just this morning you asked me why I was shoefoot.

You like to say, "Mommy, I have two questions for you..." and then you proceed to ask me two questions - sometimes silly, but sometimes pretty big questions.

You are a little girl on the go.

You can't just sit and watch cartoons.  You'd rather be doing something.  You sure keep mama busy!  :)

We are so thankful that God gave you to us.  You have given us so much joy! 


We love you so much, Silly Millie!
Happy Birthday!
