She's 3!

On Friday, May 15th, Layla turned 3!

They think crepe paper on their doors is like the coolest thing ever. And I'm pretty much the coolest mom ever, so I oblige.

Pretty dang excited to be 3! Wearing her crown Nana and Papa sent her!

Because I'm a mean mommy I scheduled her 3 year well check on her birthday (whoops). No shots though and just a very quick check up. She was super brave and is a healthy girl! 37 inches tall and 30 lbs exactly!

After that we headed up to Castle Rock to meet up with some Omaha friends that were in town. It was 70 and sunny at our house....50 and cloudy and rainy when we got to the park. Oh well, we still had fun! This Colorado spring we've been having, oh that's a whole 'nother post!

After our park playdate we went up to Denver to Toys R Us to pick out a birthday toy and then it was on to lunch at Benihana's. 

Brady loved it, Layla wasn't so sure. She just wanted her birthday ice cream and didn't appreciate the chef calling butter, ice cream. Big let down. 

Horrible lighting birthday lunch selfie!

Mommy had to pick up her race packet in Denver (race post coming soon, don't you worry!) but right next to the museum was a huge fun park. So we got out, ran around, rode bikes, and sang to this sweet birthday girl.

Yummy Frozen cupcakes!

Brian was TDY  during her actual birthday but when he got home we had another birthday celebration full of more cupcakes and presents.

And now to reflect..

My sweet little princes is 3, how is this possible?!

She is sassy, oh my is she sassy. She loves being the center of attention and will talk to anyone she encounters. Which is why the day we took pictures at the Garden of the Gods she insisted on keeping on the crown and loved getting all of the attention from it.

She is silly. She loves saying silly things to make us laugh.

She's smart. Her vocabulary blows us away sometimes and people are so surprised that she talks so well for how young she is! And she knows how to get what she wants!

She's dramatic. They weren't lying when they say girls bring the drama. She's happy, then sad, then mad, then laughing all in the span of 2 minutes.

She's creative. She's got a good imagination. She makes us laugh with the things she comes up with sometimes!

She's a lover. She thinks her brother is the coolest kid in the whole world. Although they fight like all siblings do, they sure do have a sweet bond!

She's so sweet and we're so glad she's ours!
