20 weeks

Yesterday I was 20 weeks

and I wore high heels

and my husband was appointed
as a new deacon at church
(the handsomest one)

and I went to a baby shower
(not mine)

and I ate a lot of food

and I played with my girls.

It was a good day.

Being 3 Means...

staying dry all night

getting myself dressed

singing my ABC's
in whatever order seems right to me

being allowed to attend
Bible Hour at church with the "big kids"

using big, grown-up words; like, disgusting

lots of Raucous Laughter

not screaming
when I get my hair washed

making up lengthy songs
with complex lyrics

helping Mommy unload the dishwasher

I'm so glad she 3, and she's ours.

Happy Birthday Eliza

because mommies can always use a little help

and I happen to be mommy to
the best 22 month old
dryer loader in 6 counties

and it only takes roughly 3 times
the amount of time
it would take me to do it myself

and it produces an immensely proud
and pleased little toddler.

I wouldn't pass it up for anything.
