Happy Third Birthday Berlin!

Birth Day

First Birthday

Second Birthday

Third Birthday

Dear Berlin,

Happy, happy birthday sweet girl! I can’t believe you are three!!

I just wrote an update about all the wonderful things about you, but I didn’t really say how much I love you. I feel so blessed that you are a part of our lives and a part of our family.

What do I love about you? I love that you are silly and happy a lot of the time, that you are always ready to laugh. I love that you are stubborn and strong willed. I love that you have so much determination, enough that you can accomplish whatever you want in life – and I know you will. I love that you sing all the time, that you have as much of a natural ear as your dad. I love that you get so excited every single time you see a dog. I love how creative you are, how imaginative you are, and how smart you are. I love that you love to snuggle and that you let me rub your back all the time. I love that you still like to sit on my lap. I love that you still like to sleep with your face pressed up to the rail on your bed, just like when you were in your crib. I love that you are so full of life!

Seriously. I had a hard time with your birthday this year because I didn't want to let go of my two year old. I didn’t really want you to turn three, but you didn’t listen to me. ☺ On the other hand, I can’t wait to see what kind of fun we are going to have this next year!

Daddy and I are obsessed with you. We think you are the most perfect newly turned three year old we know. You make us smile – a lot.

I can't believe how much she has grown since we saw her last! What a little lady!! Mitch loves her first birthday picture, he is amazed that no chocolate went in her eyes...
