I say it every year (all the time, actually) that it is so hard to believe how quickly Landry is growing up. My parents used to say that they were going to find a big rock and put it on my head so I wouldn't grow up so fast - and I never really understood that until now. Three years ago Dave and I were in the hospital waiting for our baby girl to arrive and were so unaware of how our world would change. It changed for the better, no doubt, and we are enjoying Miss Landry so much. Since this is her 3rd birthday, here are three things we love about her:
1) Love for life - Landry is one of the happiest children we know. Although she does have her moments (don't we all??!!), she loves life and that is easy to see as you watch her grow and learn each day - whether she is playing or "working" very diligently on some important task! :)
2) Smile and Laugh - Landry's smile and laugh are so contagious. It warms our heart every time we hear her laugh out loud or see her flash that pretty smile.
3) Ability to entertain herself - we love, so much, to watch Landry play on her own. She can sit down to "read" a book, have a conversation with her dolls, play with her blocks or whatever else catches her eye at the moment and be content for long periods of time. It really is a cute thing to watch, but in our opinion, most things about her are cute. :)
Landry, we hope you have a wonderful birthday. We love you so much and look forward to many, many more birthday celebrations with you!
We love you,
Mommy and Daddy
