Happy Birthday

Dear Alanna,
Today you are 3. You have brought such delight and love to our family. You are funny, smart, and feisty. You know what you want and when you want it. You have an opinion and never afraid to show it. I am so proud of you everyday.

You are an amazing little sister. When ever Hannah wants to play house or school, you are always down to be the baby or the student. You are an amazing big sister. When ever Ben is crying you are there with a smile, a hug or a pacifier. Even though at times you are a little aggressive and go a little overboard with the kisses Ben always has a smile waiting for you.

You are an amazing daughter. Every morning you have a smile waiting for me and a laugh to follow. You never come up short with hugs and kisses and you are an expert at making me laugh. Everyday you become smarter and funnier if thats possible.

You have a love for animals beyond any child I have ever seen. All animals are equal to you. From anteaters to baby dinosaurs all the way down to zebras. You have a place on your bed for all 50 stuffed animals and if one is missing you know it. Thats one of your favorite excuses to get out of bed. You do an inventory every night before bed and set each animal in their spot.

You also have an amazing memory. You remember things from last year, like the last visit to the zoo or the circus. You talk about family events like they happened yesterday even if they were last Christmas. Like I said before you are an amazing little girl. I am beyond proud of you in your speech. It hasn't even been a year yet and you have improved 100%. You have worked so hard to get words right even if you have to ask for the word 10 times, you are determined to get everything right. Alanna Baylee, I am so happy to be your mommy and could not imagine a better 3 year old little girl in my life. I love you, Happy Birthday!

Love mommy
