I could start off saying it’s hard to
believe that you are 3, but actually it’s the other way around. It is hard to
imagine a life without my little princess in it. If feels like you have been a
part of it forever. I love you soooooo
much. Right now I am sitting in a prison (working haha) and I cannot wait to
get home to hear you yell “Dadddyyyyyy” and run up and jump in my arms. I can
be gone for a week or an hour and you are always so excited to see me when I
get home. That is the welcome I have
always pictured when thinking about being a Daddy. Long day of work coming home
to a house full of joy with children running and jumping in my arms. Your smile warms my heart. Even though its
sideways or funny like you are trying to show your bottom teeth, I love it.
This year has been so fun to watch you grow. You have quite
the personality. You always want to make others laugh and you succeed almost
every time. I am pretty sure that you
get your sense of humor from me. I guess time will tell. One of my favorite Brittlynn developments this year is how you like to get dressed up every day.
It is usually something different on a daily basis. Gloves, hats, shoes,
mittens, jackets, and they are always mismatched. It can be 100 degrees outside
and you will say “Daddy, my hands are cold. Can you help me put these gloves
on?” I try to explain that you don’t need them on, but you end up wearing them
anyways. A little bit stubborn too, definitely didn’t get that from me!
You are such a tough little girl as well. You love to dress
up and be girly, but you also want to play basketball, football, and wrestle
all the time. Your legs are always bruised up. You fall down or get hurt and
you pop right back up and say “I ok”. It is so cute. You also have the sweetest
voice. Everything you say sounds adorable. I love when you tell me you love me
because you make it sound that much better. Don’t ever forget though your sad
face does not work on me. Haha
One thing I want you to know and hopefully remember, is how
much you look up to your brother. I remember when Aunt Casey was young she used
to look at me the same way. You try to do everything he does. Wear the same
clothes, sing the same songs, repeat almost everything he says. Your brother
loves you sooo much. One day he will probably aggravate you. He will be over
protective, overbearing, and probably in your business. Just know that it is
only because he loves you and wants the best for you. He already is very
protective. I love when he says “nobody better mess with my sister”. I love
that. That is how a big brother should be. If you read this when you are older,
Let him protect you. Don’t let it bother you. It’s only because he loves you so
You are such a shining light in my life. You make everything
more fun. I can’t wait to see all the memories we make in in your fourth year.
I love you so so much. Don’t forget you will always be “my girl”.
