Happy 3rd Birthday Rowe!

Rowe, you are a three year old! Three years ago you joined our family.

8.17.13     10 lbs. 

You now are 3 feet tall and weigh 32 lbs. You are wearing 3t clothes and will move into 4t for fall, and a size 9 1/2 shoe. On August 1st you started all day preschool three days a week. You loved the first two weeks, greatly disliked the third for some reason, and are back to loving it again now. You still love music, reading books, playing with dolls, and being active. You are going to start gymnastics after Labor day to use some of that energy. Your favorite books are seek and find, songs and finger plays, and Pete the Cat. Your favorite songs are the ones you sang in preschool last year. You love to spend time one on one with Daddy, Nonna, and I. You still love Brennan greatly, but the two of you have entered a sibling squabble stage. This year you have: gone on your first field trip, become potty trained, attended a couple of weddings, gone to the beach, visited Chattanooga, learned to swim, and made several friends of your own. You have had stages where you were the happiest, easiest little lady, and others where you were quite difficult to get along with. You currently do not like bedtime and try to avoid it. Your avoiding it is crying, yelling, getting in and out of bed, turn the light on and off, and usually ends when you get a big punishment and just fall out so mad and crying. It's definitely not my favorite, so hopefully you can move along quickly to a pleasant end to your day. You tend to really test the limits at home, but when you are in the care of others you seem to cooperate well. It's all a learning process, and you have shown us in many ways that you are a little smarty. All that you are showing us will form you into the great person God made you to be. We couldn't be more proud of you Rowe!
