Three

Today, Lydia is three years old. Can you think of any better reason to have a cupcake for breakfast? Or swing outside in your pajamas and sock feet??
It's hard to believe that three years have gone by so quickly. It seems like a very short while ago, we were bringing this baby home from the hospital.
Lydia has such a zest for life and so much personality. I came across this poem and I thought it described her to a tee. The author is unknown, and I changed the last line, just a bit. Happy Birthday Lydia! We love you!

“What Is A Little Girl!”
She's a bundle of sweetness, brightness & fun
The beauty of springtime, the warmth of the sun
She's Innocence covered with mud, sand, & soot
She's Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot...
She's a composite picture of giggles & tears
Of tantrums, excitement, amusement & fears
A bundle of mischief and often a tease
A creature of moods not easy to please...

Who'll capture your heart with her pixie-like grin
Or chatter and beg till your patience wears thin
But obedient, naughty, mischievous or coy
She's our little Lydi-Bug
And she’s a joy!
