my baby is 3!

sound the alarm, folks: elle is 3
(this keeps happening- these "happy birthday" blog posts.)
years keep passing, and my little girl is thuh-ree already.
she is sassy and silly and sensitive. she is a total sweetheart. she talks so clear, and at least a few times a day says those things where you shreik, "what did you just say!?" sometimes i'm proud, other times, a bit horrified. i guess that comes with realizing you live with a parrot? (and that you need to get your act together as a parent:)
she is more excited than i thought she would be about being a big sister- she has this weird relationship with the baby that kind of freaks me out, but is incredibly endearing at the same time! i think she knows this little person who's started kicking like crazy when elle is (loudly) nearby or dangling from my arms. 
i'm trying to savor the last months of being just elle's mama...
oh, sweet little elle matilda petersen, your daddy and i love you so much! happy birthday!
