Happy 3rd Birthday Jenna

It is hard to believe that Jenna is already three years old. Sigh, sniff, sniff.

It was amazing this past year to watch her change from a shy, obedient little two-year old into a confident, polite, outgoing three-year old. It's a pleasure to watch her grow and mature. I look forward to being both mom and friend to her for years and years to come.

Here's Jenna in a nutshell.
-She love the color purple. If purple is an option, then purple is chosen.
-She makes up songs. Her most recent one is titled, "The Rainbow Express the Lord". We caught it on video, and it's cute.
-She LOVES being with friends. And she LOVES her cousins.
-She knows all her letters and numbers, and is starting to write a few.
-She adores her dad, and for good reason. He's the best.
-She is a great sister.
-She loves books and always wants us to read to her. She has a few books memorized and reads them to us.
-She loves watching movies and tv. Friday night movie night is her favorite.
-She loves vegetables.
-She loves ice cream.
-When asked if she has a pet, she says yes. But we don't. She loves her stuffed kitty, and it is as close to a real pet as she will get for a while.
-She can't start her day until she has on her jewelry - two necklaces and two bracelets. And she wants to wear a dress or skirt every day.
-She loves to teach me how to do things, and loves to play that she's the mother and I'm the daughter.
-She loves church - singing the songs, learning about God, being with friends, creating Bible art.

So sweet Jenna, happy birthday. I don't know if you will ever read this post but if you do, I hope you can see how very much I love you. I can't wait to see God's plans for your life, and I will pray for you each step of the way. I love you baby girl!

I love and pray for you, too, princess. You are so special to your mimi and me. Megan and Eric, thank you so much for letting us share in the party on iChat. It was fun to see all the princesses and scallywag pirates (even Drake!) Hope we can see you all soon.
