Dear Monkey,

Wow. I can't believe you are 3 years old. It seems like just yesterday we brought this chubby little bundle home from the hospital. Your brother and sisters ADORED you. In fact, Pixie was so enamored of you, we were constantly having to tell her to "back off!" Consequently, "back off!" was one of the first things you ever said. True story.

You have been such a source of joy and laughter in our home these last 3 years. Despite your antics, we couldn't imagine our family without you.

You are so smart (too smart!), funny, and full of spirit. We feel so honored that Heavenly Father trusted you to our care.

Thank you for blessing our lives and always keeping us on our toes! I hope you have a wonderful birthday my beautiful little girl. I love you!













Okay...I had the best video of her telling about her birthday...but stupid Blogger won't upload it. If I get it to work, I'll update...have an awesome Tuesday!

She is adorable! One of the first real words Layla said (after da-da and what sounded like maybe dog dog) was hush....yes because we say it to our dogs all the time when they start barking at something outside
