My Baby's Growing Too Quickly!

Timing has never been my strong suit. So I'll have to report after the fact.

Sweet Pea turned 3 years old on Monday.

Before The Bug was born, I talked with Sweet Pea about her birthday and asked what sort of party she wanted to have this year. I was completely unsurprised by her expected response, "I want a kitty party!" I sat her on my lap and we looked online to find kitty birthday plates and stuff, and she chose her theme. As you can see, in lieu of party hats, she opted for the kitty ear head bands - hee hee!

So on Sunday, she got her dream kitty party and had a GREAT time.

Thank goodness another 3-year-old showed up. They had SO much fun together. Omigosh, they were so cute.

But the day of the party, during and after, I kept having flashes of her growing up. Could have had something to do with having a 13-year-old in the house, whose family I lived with for 10 months, beginning when she was only 1 month old.

Some day she won't want me to play with her every day. Some day she won't want to sit on my lap and fiddle with my hair to comfort herself when she's upset or tired. Some day she won't want to tell me every single thing that pops into her head. Some day she won't be so interested in what I have to say. Some day... it sounds like a long time away, but it's just around the corner!

Anyway - it's late and I'm tired so this is probably really boring and not making much sense, but before I go, here's another cute picture to enjoy.
