Summer Turns 3

On Summer's birthday, May 5th, I took the girls to the Aquarium. We hadn't been since Ellie's 2nd birthday and I was pregnant with Summer. Summer's favorite part was the "fish." I loved the shark tunnel the best, but everything was awesome. 

I picked up this number 3 balloon at the party store the night before. Ellie and I also surprised her in the morning with two pink balloons. Summer woke up saying, "My birthday now?"

Summer's "3" shirt is from one of my favorite Etsy shops

Checking out the hippos
 Ellie was surprised she touched a sting ray!

Summer told me she wanted Jules pizza for dinner and cupcakes for dessert. We picked up the cupcakes from our favorite local bakery, Velvet Sky.

Food: Lime Chobani yogurt, Grandmom's green pasta (pesto pasta)
Phrase: "best!" ("Best Mommy!"), "dupe dupe dupe" ("dupe dupe high")
Toys: Barbies, dolls
Pretend Play: Mom and kid (her and Ellie)
Activities: coloring, swings, running, playing tag

Summer is so silly and loves making us laugh. She has started talking more recently but still comes up with her own phrases. "Dupe dupe high" for pushing her super duper high on the swing. To express her love for us she will say, "best Mommy!" If I give her a kiss on the lips that also ends up on her chin or above her lip she will grab my face and give me a gentle kiss again to make sure we only kiss on the lips. She loves to wear dresses and twirl just like her big sister. Speaking of her big sis, she loves to do everything Ellie does. Especially when we are taking pictures. If Ellie crosses her feet so does Summer. Recently Summer has started posing herself for pictures with her hands on her hips. It's too cute. Summer will not let me put her hair up. Sometimes she will keep in a bow or a headband for a short period of time. When I show her pictures how she used to wear her hair a year ago she will tell me no. She is still in her crib and since we moved the dresser to the other side of the room she hasn't tried to climb out again. She is still nursing about once a day. 

We love you, Summer!
