philippa's third birthday

Happy Third Birthday, Phillipa Florence! It's been a crazy year of changes for you. Shortly after turning 2 you moved from Minnesota to Florida and got a baby brother! You started school for the first time, moved to a big girl bed, got potty trained, and moved to yet another house. You handled it all so well, like I knew you would. Sure, there were tantrums and tears, but we knew we'd figure it out together. You always keep us laughing with your big words, jokes, silly songs, and funny faces.

 I can't believe how strong and independent you're becoming! I see so much of your dad in you - in your sense of humor, and in how sociable you are. You make friends with anyone and everyone wherever you go. I pray you keep your adventurous spirit and zest for life as you grow older. It's what makes you Pippa! Keep letting that light shine! Happy birthday, and here's to another year or growth, change, fun, and laughter. Love you!

And now, here's a glimpse into Pippa's third birthday celebration:
