Someone turns three today. And it's kind of killing me! Her birthday always make me feel so nostalgic for some reason. Partly because her birth coincided with our last move and by her turning 3 it signals that it's time for us to pick up and leave again. Ugh. Leaving is always the hardest part - yes, I am excited for our new home and another adventure. But it breaks my heart every time I have to say good bye to friends and a place I've come to love. But more on that later...
Look who's three!!
I don't know what it is about her, but she breaks the tension, makes me laugh and smile and soothes my frazzled self when I need it. I don't know if that comes with being #3 or being doted on as the baby or what. But she's been a bright spot in the past year full of deployment stress and all of that fun stuff.
Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake sent me some of her darling Dress Up Days fabric to make babylouwho a dress. I love this pattern so much (Simplicity 5695) that this is the 3rd dress I've made with it! It comes together so easily and is so comfortable to wear! And easy to adapt to whatever fabric you might have on hand!
So excuse me while I mourn the loss of my newborn and celebrate her spunky 3 year old self!
