Our Little 3-Year-Old

Kayla celebrated her third birthday on May 25th.  She started the day with cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs, bacon, and pink smoothie (her favorites!).  Then she got to open presents.  Kayla really enjoys opening presents and Logan liked helping!  

Figuring out that scissors work best on the ribbon.

Logan had his own present to open.

So tired after all the morning festivities.

Her castle cupcake-cake.  When asked what she wanted for her birthday, Kayla always answered "pink cake".
After Kayla woke up from her nap we finished getting everything set to celebrate outside with her friends.  Once outside, Kayla's friends sang to her and everyone enjoyed cupcakes, yummy drinks, and playing on the playground.  Unbeknownst to Kayla, that day was the last time she would see her favorite friend Kate.  We tried to get some good pictures of the girls together but they weren't exactly cooperative in that department.  

We quickly cleaned everything up then headed to the airport to fly to California, where we celebrated Kayla's birthday again.  

For the record, she had her 3-year appointment and here are her stats:
Weight - 31.5lbs. (60th %ile)
Height - 36.5in. (28th %ile)

Kayla is such a blessing to our family.  She says and does the funniest things and is always so concerned for others.  Kayla loves to sing and always amazes us with new songs belting out of her mouth.  Her favorites lately have been "Somewhere Out There", "Stop in the Name of Love", and "Three Little Birds" (Bob Marley).  When there is anything to do around the apartment, Kayla is always right there helping out.  Sometimes she gets "scary" (scared), especially when we all turn into "monsters", which we apparently have been doing a lot lately.  Kayla has the most active imagination.  Quite often I will hear her talking and wonder who she is talking to then realize she is just playing some sort of imaginative game.  We love our active little girl so much!
