we recently celebrated chloe's third birthday. i seriously can't believe that my baby is three! time went by way faster than i wanted it to. and i can't say enough good about my sweet, spunky little bug. no one has as much giggly-ness, as much attitude, stubborn-ness, silliness, or is as cuddly as my chloe bug.
a recent, short conversation:
me- "chloe, where's your pants?" (they disappeared from her legs)
chloe- "they're not working" (the r's said as w's, thank you)
in other words, she didn't want to wear them anymore, so in her opinion, they're not working, so that she doesn't have to wear them anymore. smart girl.
so at target about a month ago we were browsing through the toy aisles just looking (not touching...riiiight) at stuff to appease the restless natives, and chloe spots the most beautiful wedding dress-up dress. immediately "i need it!" was said (she is my daughter after all!), as was "mommy, please can we get it?" i declined calmly, telling her that maybe she'll get it for her birthday. surprisingly she was agreeable and said, "oh, okay mommy."
well imagine her pure joy to see that she did indeed get that lovely (and pricey) wedding dress. it was really our only gift since it was $$, but that was all she needed. she has worn it every day since.
her then-current dress was immediately removed and replaced with her new love. just look at the longing in the girl's face as daddy takes his time removing tags and hangars. geez! hurry dad!
she then proceeded to spin around the house, twirling and dancing around.

we love you.
