Hippo Hooray! Faith is 3 today.

It's so hard to believe that Faith is three years old now.
It seems like each day she's a little more like a big girl instead of my baby.
Her favorite color is "pur-hull" (purple).
She loves all things tiny and looks forward to tickle time with her Daddy each evening.
Faith loves to cuddle, color, listen to stories, and watch "tee-bee" (tv). 
We let our girls watch a little Disney Junior right before bedtime each night.
And all she wanted for her birthday was a "pur-hull hipp-ah-mus tay-kkkk" (purple hippopotamus cake).  That's it. She asked for a purple hippopotamus cake for her birthday every day without fail for the last 10 weeks.  
For some reason Faith is slightly obsessed with hippopotamuses.  She even sings a little song about wanting a purple hippopotamus for her birthday...It goes to the tune of wanting a hippopotamus for Christmas song...
Before long it was time to bow out candles which Faith successfully accomplished on her first puff thanks to the help of her big sister, Grace.
Then she opened her presents.  Along with a butterfly necklace and Princess Candyland
Faith finally got her very own Baby Be Blessed dolly.
Who was promptly named "Lee-Lee" (Lily).  
Then we ate cake.  Although Faith only ate the "mahsh-ma-woah" (marshmallow) eyeballs and a bit of the icing.  She's never been one that really likes sweets.  She's more of a red meat and potatoes kind of girl.  She's the only kid that I know who will go to Chickfila and eat 1-2 nuggets and say she's full.  Then she'll trade in her toy for an ice cream cone (only because Grace wants a cone and Faith wants to be just like Grace) and then take 2 licks and say she's done.  So funny.

All in all, I think it was a pretty great birthday for my 3 year old.  

Happy Birthday Faith!   You are such a special little girl with a joyful and happy spirit.  Your smile alone lights up the room and everyone in it.  Even when you were a tiny little baby, strangers would walk up to you and start conversations just because they saw and couldn't resist your smile.  You are so full of laughter and you bring such happiness and sunshine to everyone around.   I have enjoyed every little moment with you over the past three years and I look forward to each and every day with you.  I love you more than my heart can hold and I am so grateful to be your Momma.
