Lila's 3rd birthday was on June 7, 2015. We are so proud of our big girl! Good morning, birthday girl! Lila turned 3 on June 7, 2015. She started off the day by opening cards, and she got super excited/nervous/shy by the image of TinkerBell on the front of this card from Great-Grandma Dot. She has developed this very strong shyness whenever she sees one of her favorite characters in real life. It's very sweet (and powerful). The table and kitchen were decorated with special balloons when she woke up for breakfast. It's a beautiful day to turn 3! starting off with a couple presents at breakfast If there was a theme to Lila's 3yo birthday, it was GAMES! She got so many board games, and they are all definitely a favorite current pasttime. Blessed birthday girl a bit shy, again, but totally in love with her Daniel Tiger trolley and “friends” as she calls these characters. This girl loves to point out backhoes as we drive around town. The new basketball hoop (which still remains in our living room these nearly 4 months later, and I'm not sure who enjoys it more: Craig or Lila). It's exhausting watching all of this present opening! (Don't worry, Eleanor, it will be your turn in 2 days). Why, oh why, is Franklin's bed Eleanor's favorite place to roll around?!?! Her new bubble-blowing lawn mower (disregard how overgrown our yard was after being on vacation for 2 weeks!) I was just admiring this lovely picture of Lila blowing out her birthday candle, and then I noticed Eleanor in the background!! This determined, bright, cheerful, giving, thoughtful little girl is growing in so many ways, and we are so grateful to have had her in our lives these past 3 years. Here's to you, sweet girl!
