dear Hadley / 3 years.

Dear Hadley,

This week I found myself looking at old photos of you from the past 3 years. I can't believe we made it this far. One step at a time. You are growing into a smart, capable, funny, dependent, cuddly, sweet, hilarious, beautiful little girl. Right now you are obsessed with your baby dolls you got from your birthday. It's so fun to watch you be a little mama yourself. Saying "shh be very quiet baby is sleeping." I love it. Your favorite meals are mac and cheese, ravioli, and chicken nuggets. You started taking showers about 6 months ago.  Yes showers. You seriously do it all yourself, just need a little help rinsing the shampoo out of your hair.
Three is going to be the best year yet. Each year you get older, I keep saying this is the best age. Every age really does keep getting better and better. Watching you grow and learn everything in this world is one of my favorites. This mama gig is the best thing that I've ever done. I love that you can carry on full conversations, and have your own opinions. My least favorite is your opinion on what clothes to wear haha You are doing so well at your school, I can tell a huge difference in your vocabulary since you've started there and just growing up and learning so many new things.
These days with you are just magic. That is the best word I can think of to describe life with you as my daughter. Pure magic. I hope you know how grateful I am for you. How much I appreciate you, and your patience with me as we learn this gig together in life. I still have so much to learn as a parent, but we are in this together. All of us. Your Dad, brother, sister, and even Georgie poo as you call our dog.

You are so very special sweet girl.
Happy 3rd Birthday!

Love you,
