Our Little Love is now three and a half, which means we are due for an update post!
Sometimes I look at her and cannot believe we made this beautiful little thing. She’s speaks clearer and clearer. There are times when she will say a word correctly and not like it. You can tell because she will repeat herself and pronounce it in her baby talk. It’s so funny to watch her get confused and realize the difference.
Her imagination is to the moon and back. Then, there’s her immense love for all of us. Her sweetness is not always apparent through her three-year-old ways, but it’s always there. The amount of hugs and adorable looks I get is impossible to count. She wants to give hugs to Domingo whenever we come and go. According to her Domingo is taking hugs. I hear, “Ohhh, look Momma (giggle-giggle). Momma LOOK, Domingo is taking hugs from me! (giggle-giggle) Awww!” Wearing a sweet expression with a head tilt.
She has perfected that head tilt with sweet gaze by practicing in the mirror, umpteen times! She wants to wear pants or dresses. The dresses cannot be “big” enough, meaning they should be long enough that she needs to pick them up off the ground to walk. She loves crowns and finger nail polish and Spider Man. Her favorite thing to do is dance and her ability to memorize lyrics to songs or the 14 page “My Favorite Nursery Rhymes Book” is astounding. Of course, those lyrics are kinda hard to get out in time with the songs, so we miss a few of them when Belle sings, Little Town.
Sometimes she wants me to sing with her and other times, it’s just LL’s turn. But she ALWAYS wants me (or anyone) to dance with her. Holding hands is one of her go-to moves in making new friends. While she is still veryveryveryveryvery slow to warm up to people she doesn’t know or open up in situations that aren’t familiar to her.
At school, she is learning to recognize numbers, letters, shapes and colors. I’m always surprised at how quickly she picks some things up. Of course, she’s like her Momma, and has times where she completely blanks on things I know she understands…or maybe, she’s just stubborn (like her Momma and Daddy) and wants the questions to stop.
Who knows!? We love her oodles and that’s the important stuff.
