For Ruby

Dear Ruby,

Today you are 3 years old!  Three spunky years you have been a part of our family!  Three fantastic years.  You are one beautiful, sweet, fun loving, sassy three year old!  Life with you is never dull ... and we love it!

To say that you are full of personality would be an understatement.  You are the happiest little girl that I know ... except for when you are mad!  Your body language just exudes joy!  You never walk, you dance!  Everywhere.  All. the. time.  I love getting you dressed in the morning and then seeing you get up and dance around in your outfit for the day!

You are a girl who knows what she wants, when she wants it!  You are very opinionated about what you wear, how your hair is done, who makes you warm brown {chocolate milk!} and so much more!  Since your baby sister was born, you have become very attached to me!  So much so that Dad can't do anything for you.  Sometimes this is very hard for you as you have to wait for Mom to finish up what she is doing with Lyla.

Speaking of Lyla, you have taken to the role of BIG sister so nicely.  I was so worried about how you would react to having a new baby in the family, but you are such a sweet big sister.  You are always talking to Lyla, loving on her, and getting her toys and stuffed animals.  You constantly bring me blankets for her and on occasion you even share your lovie with her!  It makes my heart melt to see how much you love her!

Your favorite color is purple ... and pink!  You love any and all things girly.  Your favorite thing to wear is dresses.  You love babies, barbies, and dressing up ... you can often be found in a Tinkerbelle costume.  Your favorite movies are Strawberry Shortcake and Care Bears.  You love princesses and decided all on your own that you were going to have a Belle Birthday this year!  Your favorite book is Fancy Nancy Bonjour Butterfly.  You choose it every night for story time.  I am pretty sure you have it memorized!

Ruby Jane we love you so much!  Life is so much better because you are in it.  How blessed we are that you are a  part of our family.  I look forward to the year ahead ... watching you grow and seeing your personality develop even more.  Happy Birthday sweet girl!  I hope it is all you dreamed of and more!

Love you to pieces,
