It is so hard to believe that Shyla is three years old! In some ways, she seems like such a baby still: when she wants to be snuggled, when she cries out of sheer exhaustion (oh wait, I do that too!), and when I peak in on her while she's sleeping. But in other ways she seems like such a big-girl: when she rocks her own baby, when she tells Harper not to cry because, "it's okay, baby Harper" and when I notice how much of her crib she now takes up.
To celebrate, we had a family birthday breakfast on her actual birthday. Grandma Barbara brought over a Blueberry Coffee Cake and all the cousins had lots of playtime together.
Stevie was in Chicago for a wedding so he missed the breakfast but after nap we picked him up at the airport and headed to my favorite Pita Jungle for a birthday dinner with Daddy. Of course, Shyla got a yummy dessert to celebrate.
And then the past weekend we continued the celebration with a birthday bash at my parents house! Of course we had to have a jumping castle, because that's truly all that Shyla really wanted!
