Our baby girl isn't much of a baby anymore!

Brooklyn turned 3 yesterday. I know I say this every year, but I can't believe how time has flown. She is such a sweet, spunky little girl. She loves her "baby" brother (as she lovingly calls him), and always makes sure he gets a hug and a kiss goodnight. Brooklyn LOVES swimming and could swim all day if I let her. She also LOVES popsicles, quesadillas, french fries, and watermelon. She is finally becoming a more adventurous eater, and even ate a whole gyoza the other night (which she had stolen from her friends plate)! She loves to be read to, especially on the potty. lol We love our sweet little Brooklyn and the joy and spunk she brings into our lives. Happy Birthday sweet girl!

Here are her 3 year stats (for my records): weight-30 lbs!! She finally hit it! I attribute it to a full bladder :) (25%), height-36.25" (25%) She had a major growth spurt the last couple months!, BMI 16.05 (just like her mommy! ha!) 50%, Blood pressure 90/60, Vision R 20/40 L 20/40 

We threw a little "slip 'n slide" birthday party for her on Saturday with a few of her friends. Then on her actual birthday, we invited her "aunt" Stephanie and "uncle" Hyrum and their kids over for cake.

The food table. We kept it simple. I asked Brooklyn what she wanted and she wanted pb & j, watermelon, and pretzels. Easy enough!

Made a little flower garland...an hour before the party...and I hadn't showered yet. Priorities people!
The slip n' slide was a hit!
Brooklyn was very gracious opening her presents. At least for a 3 year old I thought.
Sunday after church she opened her presents from Mommy and Daddy. The dress she's wearing was her special birthday outfit.
Brooklyn requested banana bread for her cake. lol  Done!
Ending the night with a little "Princess and the Frog."

oh my gosh those pics of the slip and slide are cracking me up! I love Magnus's face and poor Addie looks like she's about to be shoved into a wall. That was so much fun. And WOW on making garland an hour before the party. That's impressive!
