Michaela turned 3 years old today!! The first thing she said this morning when she woke up was, "Can I eat my birthday cake now?" She just can't wait to eat it and share it with her friends (on Saturday) at her party. I took MJ to Dr. Gould today for her 3 year check up. She was so cute and Dr. Gould got a kick out of Michaela talking to him and asking him how his day was going...I was sitting there looking at my beautiful 3 year old, but feeling like it was just yesterday that I was in that office with my premature little Michaela for a weight check hoping she had gained some weight!! This is such a cool, but weird feeling for me. One I am sure all parents have...being able to see your little baby despite how old your baby really is. While these 3 years have flown by for sure, I also feel like, "3, she is only 3," because my heart feels like I have had Michaela for such a longer time than 3 years. All the love, happiness, laughter, and memories she has brought us seems like too many for only 3 years. So, looking at it that way, it seems like more time should have passed because I can't imagine life without her. She is truly a Blessing from God!

The picture above is from this morning on our way to the Doctor.

HAPPY 3rd BIRTHDAY MICHAELA! I hope you had a wonderful day. I can't believe how fast these past three years have gone by. I remember perfectly the day you were born and exactly where I was when I found out! You are such a beautiful and smart little girl. I can't wait to see all that lies ahead for you in the year ahead!

Lots of Love,
