For Devy's birthday I made a Dora the Explorer cake. It was my first fun cake I ever made. I learned a lot and now know what not and what to do the next go around. I will definitely start a day ahead of time so I don't waste a whole day that we should be having fun instead of making a dang cake. She loved it in the end and we had fun sharing it with our neighbors.
My amazing daughter turned three this month! I cannot believe it! I have been a mother for THREE YEARS!! I mean COME ON! This is seriously incredible.
I love this amazing little girl. She is so full of life! Everything is a game. I love that when I wake up every morning that there will be a cute little blonde running up to me to give me supper lovies and tell me that she loves me so much and then that she needs breakfast. Getting dressed and going to bed and brushing teeth are all games. She loves her little brother! She is her main man second only to her Dadder.
Devy is always saying crazy things that make me laugh until it hurts. Like "Mom Jesus dies but then he was ected" While in the middle of playing at a public park. Or pointing to a man with a hoodie on saying "Hey mom look Jesus!" Or every big building with is a Temple and she is ALWAYS pointing them out.
She is also OBSESSED with having babies. Every day I am asked if I am pregnant. Now though it is more of when is she going to be pregnant. Which has also led to interesting conversations about going to college and marrying a nice returned missionary in the Temple and THEN having a baby a couple of years after... She tells me all the time that she is going to the temple and getting married to her husband. OH DEAR.
Her best friend right now is a little boy named Alex. He is so dang cute. He is a month younger than Devy and the sweetest little boy ever. We have fun playing with them outside on the sidewalk. She also has a couple of twin girl friends that are super nice.
Devy loves playing with ANIMALS! She got a farm for her birthday and has played with it EVER SINCE. She is ALL about role play. Sometimes I pretend like I am busy but I just stop and listen to her little drama stories that go on between her little farm animals.
Role play is the new game. Anything is a toy. We were eating lunch the other day and had fresh peas in the pod and those turned into a few friends going to the park and learning how to share their toys. She is always being a mommy to them and excising her motherly duties of making her toys share or go to time out if they hit mommy.
She is so smart and kind. She is really getting into helping me and loves to help me get stuff if I am stuck and need help. I love that she understands life now and how to communicate a little better. She is AMAZING at talking. I love when she messes up her tenses because I happens infrequently that I cant bring myself to correct her because it is so dang cute.
I love you my dearest Devy Lee. You are my shining star
