Today Zoe was treated to a house full of people who love her and were excited about sharing in her celebration of turning three. Not only were her grandparents from right here in Illinois in attendance, but her grandparents from Ohio made the trip in for Zoe’s special day. Add in her wonderfully dotting Godmother, her Great-Grandparents, and her Aunt and Uncles, and she was surrounded by birthday love at her party.
And did she ever eat it up. Zoe has developed into an animated and precocious young girl, but she seemed to take her sparkling smile and silliness to the next level in front of the gathered assembly of her party. She was absolutely glowing in her joy to be celebrating her third birthday and to have so many people at a party just for her. It really made me quite happy to see her enjoying herself so much.
In the weeks leading up to Zoe’s third birthday she has successfully learned to use the bathroom and no longer use diapers, and she has made the switch to a “big girl” bed. Turning three has capped off an exciting and eventful eight weeks since the beginning of the New Year. I think we can safely say that Zoe has finally turned the corner from being a toddler to being a full-fledged little girl. It’s very exciting, and I am anxious to see what she does next.
Happy birthday Zoe! Your Mom and I love you very much. We can’t wait to see what new challenges you tackle and what milestones you accomplish now that you have completed the gauntlet of toddler-hood.
