3 Years Down

And many more to go.

Everyone around me seemed to think I wasn't ready for this day because I refused to say Kyra was "almost 3," "going to be 3," or "will be 3" in X amount of weeks or days.

I've always said I wasn't in a hurry for Kyra to grow up. I have never once said "I wish she'd grow up already," "I wish she'd learn to do this," "I wish she'd do that." I made up my mind the day she was born that I would never rush her to grow up sooner then she saw fit. And with that, I have never pushed the issue that her birthday was around the corner.

Today she turned 3. Not yesterday. Not two weeks ago. Today, I now have a 3 year old to boss me around in my daily adventures. And I wouldn't change it for the world.

Happy Birthday- Miss Sassy Pants!

Don't rush to grow up too soon. You'll be 3 for the next 365 days- and don't let anyone else tell you differently.

Love you bunches,


  1. Happy birthday, Kyra. I love, love, love the picture- the outfit? Perfect!! Man, I'd be asking for your hand-me-downs if you weren't making another girl! :)

  2. Too cute! What a smile! Happy Birthday, Kyra. God bless you as you grow at just your own pace.

  3. Awww Happy Birthday gorgeous!!! I hope you had a wonderful day and got to eat lots and lots of yummy cake!!!

  4. Please tell her Happy (Belated) Birthday for me.
