My baby is growing up

3 years ago today, I gave birth to our second little girl, Lucy,  and our lives changed in an incredible way.

Lucy is so kind-hearted, so easygoing, strong-willed but not as much as her sister,  smart, curious, and she brings such joy to our lives. She has always been an excellent eater, a (mostly) great sleeper, and her love for others and for books is immeasurable. She is very affectionate and compassionate. She adores her big sister, and I think the feeling is pretty mutual. She has the most beautiful smile and a wonderful laugh. She likes to take care of her stuffed animals and I swaddle her stuffed hedgehog for her almost every day. When Lucy was born, Molly told us that Lucy’s favourite colour was orange but now Lucy is old enough to have her own opinion, and her favourite colour is red (“the same as Daddy’s!”) She loves to sing, and some of her favourite songs are Wheels on the Bus, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, and Row, Row, Row your Boat. Lucy’s  favourite books these days are Love You Forever, Slinky Malinky, the cat books, Step Outside, and many, many more. Her favourite show is Paw Patrol, by a long shot (unfortunately Molly is outgrowing it!) She is fearless and determined.

Here’s a cute recent video of her.

We are blessed to be her parents and to have her complete our family.

We are celebrating with an afternoon off today at the indoor playground, a small party with family tomorrow, and lots of balloons. I’m going to ask her some questions on video today to commemorate this day & I will try to share that next week!! 🙂

Now I’m off to make a paw patrol cake…wish me luck! I am feeling a bit bittersweet about my baby becoming a preschooler but overall I am just so enjoying this phase of life with my two girls. Happy 3rd birthday Lucy!

Have a great weekend, everyone 🙂
