3 years old

I know I say this every year, but I can't believe Savannah Kate is 3 years old!  And wearing panties now!  And sleeps in a toddler bed.  And doesn't use a paci anymore (never thought that day would come!)  She is so big.  And very independent - don't know if that's good or bad yet, but she wants to pick out her own clothes, dress herself and go potty by herself! If she takes care of her brother anything like she does for her baby dolls then she will be a great big sister :)  For her birthday we got her a baby doll that is a boy to get her more used to the idea.  She calls him brother, but said his name was "sister".  Hopefully, we will get there!

Savannah Kate, I hope I'll always remember the way you say animals (sounds Australian - which is strange because everything else you say is very southern), how you want Daddy to tell you Anna Kate Hart stories every night before bed only after reading as many books as you can possibly get us to read to you, how much you love your baby dolls and how you put them to sleep with the blankets always covering their entire face.  I love that you love to be outside, you love it when we build a fort on movie nights and let you eat dinner on the living room floor instead of the table.  I love it when you give me kisses all over my face and tell daddy that you love him when he leaves for work.  If it were up to you, you would eat peanut butter and jelly at every meal with orange juice.  I love seeing how much you love animals, especially horses which is a love you will share with daddy.  You love to play "neighs" at every given chance and want to watch any kind of movie, even westerns, that has horses in it.  I love that your not scared of anything and that you insist on being the one that gets to pray every night, as long as we are holding our pray hands correctly :)  I love that you want to dance together at the end of every single Disney movie when the music comes on and I love the way you say "this makes you happy!". 

Weight: 26.8 pounds (10th percentile)
Height: 35 1/2 inches (20th percentile)
Diapers: Size 5, but only wears them to sleep, panties during the day
Clothes: 2T/3T Shoe size: 6 1/2
Sleep: 10-11 hours at night and one 2 hour nap during the day
Current loves: playing charades and acting act different animals for us to guess, stuffing as much as she can into every single purse she owns, playing "doctor" and giving us fake shots and band aids and wearing her dress up Minnie mouse shoes everywhere we go
Dislikes: putting bug spray on (doesn't understand our horrible mosquito situation), sitting in a shopping cart - must walk/run instead and going #2 in the potty

This year, Savannah Kate's birthday was really fun because it was on a Friday and most of our family was able to come stay the weekend with us.  We spent the day at the Dallas Zoo, one of SK's favorite places here and had so much fun!
