2 to 3

In just 2 weeks it’ll be Carleigh’s 3rd birthday. Wow! I can’t believe it. It’s really snuck up on me this year. Surprisingly, I have been ok for the most part aside from a moment here and there. I think it is mostly due to being so busy all the time with life and my other girls that I don’t have time to sit and think about things.

We definitely plan to celebrate her birthday in some way. I’m not really sure what we’ll do but I do want to a cake for her again. I don’t think I’ll get one quite as large as the past 2 years otherwise we will have tons of cake left over. I’m sure we’ll release some balloons too. I guess I just don’t feel the need to plan it all out this year.

I know I want to make her a special flower arrangement for her birthday. I totally need to get on that already.

Oh sweet baby girl, I can’t believe you would be approaching 3 years old. I wish I could imagine you at 3 but it’s so hard. I really don’t know who you’d be.

Thinking about our children as they "age" is hard. But I know that every year or month that passes you have done an amazing job telling others about her and honoring a life so precious. I'm praying that whatever you decide on will go as you want. Hugs-

I am feeling this right now too. River would be 3 in April and it's so hard to imagine. I see other 3 year olds and wonder what characteristics his personality would have. Thinking of you and remembering Carleigh always.

3 was a strange one here - more gentle than one or two. Emma's third left me thoughtful rather than raw. I made her a butterfly cake :)

Thinking of you in the run up to Carleigh's day
