Eliza is 3 and my 500th Post

My husband asked me last week, why I was no longer blogging.  It makes me smile to know that he follows my blog! 

Two weeks ago our little Tinkerbell turned three.  I can hardly believe it.  Her babies days went all too fast and her toddler days got lost somewhere in the midst of a crazy, terrible pregnancy with her baby brother.  It seems like I blinked and now she is a big girl.

Eliza is such a blessing to our family.  She is sweet and laid back.  She is our best sleeper and just cooperates.  Can I get an amen??  She doesn't like to get in trouble and has sensitive little feelings.  She approaches new situations with caution and is happy to go along for the ride.  God knew we needed a sweet little Eliza in our house.

Eliza is a girlie little thing.  She daily coats...lets me says that again, COATS her lips in lip gloss. She loves jewelry, sparkles and babies...oh and Tinkerbell.  She is scared to death of dogs and most animals, but asks to get one when she gets older.  And although she is three, she still loves her tiny, pink blankie square.  The poor thing is very, very loved by now. 

Eliza is a great little sister to Ella.  She lets Ella be in charge and they generally play well together.  I am so thankful that they have each other.  She is also a great big sister to Eli.  She loves on him and calls him her baby.  She wants him to call her sissy...instead of Eliza and he loves her to pieces. 

My girl on her third birthday!

I am so thankful that God knows what He is doing. I love everything about this special 3 year old from her tan little legs to her sandy blonde hair. We are so thankful for her!

Lots of sweet family and friends came to celebrate!

Please tell me that I am not the only crazy mom that likes for us all to coordinate
our clothes to the party color scheme.  Lord help me!

The cutest Peter Pan I have ever seen!

The big sis loving some Pixie Sticks! 

Aunt Lou Lou surprised Eliza and came as Tinkerbell! 
What a labor of love!  I am sure she will never forget this!

Sweet Sisters!! 

We pray this will be a healthy and blessed year of growing and learning for our sweet Eliza Anne.

And I cannot believe this is my 500th post on the blog.  I just saw that when I logged in!  Thanks to anyone other than my husband who is still reading!
