I suppose you could argue that these changes have been creeping up a little bit at a time, developing here and there as many milestones are wont to do. But I'm going to have to disagree with you on that. It's like she knew that she turned three. Suddenly I go downstairs to get the laundry out of the dryer and when I come back she's gotten out the stamps by herself and started Crafternoon without me! I was almost temped to ask her to drive to Fred Meyer to pick up some milk for crap's sake.
Here's another list of things she says for you. The three-year-old edition:
When she wakes up in the morning she say, "Can you take my diaper off and I can have breakfast?"
When there is a lull in the action she says, "Can I watch a movie on the puh-cuter?"
When I get dressed in the morning she says, "You're lookin' good mommy!"
When we eat dinner she takes two bites and says, "Can I be done now?"
When she bumps her head she still wants to call it a "two-head" but she thinks about it first and says, "I hurt my forehead."
When we get out of the car to go into a store she says, "Should we run?"
Her favorite book is Chrysanthemum so all day long she says, "I'm like Chrysanthemum, I'm absolutely perfect!"
(Also Chrysanthemum) she says, "The day I was born was the happiest day of my parent's lives."
When I tell her to stay by me she says, "I'm not going anywhere!"
When she wants chap stick she says, "I want lips!"
Every ten minutes she says, "I want to do stamps!"
She calls Buzz Lightyear "Buzz Right Here."
When something doesn't work she says, "I want to try again again!"
When we get in the car she says, "Oh no! The Big Bad Wolf! I left him behind!"
When she puts on her princess stuff she says, "I'm a princess! Princess mommy, do you have your shoes and your crown and your purse?"
When she plays the "guess which hand" game she says, "Picky hand!"
One time when she was watching golf with grandpa she said, "I like that guy's orange shirt." And I was like, holy crap! That was like, a complete thought with an opinion and stuff. AND, that actually is a nice orange shirt!
When we tell her we love her, she still says, "I wuv you too." And then our hearts break into a million pieces and we collapse on the floor dead from love.
We love you sweet Z, and we think you're absolutely perfect too.
