Happy 3rd Birthday, Miller!
Soon your little sister Eliza Grace will be home and you have very mixed emotions about that. You proudly show her picture to anyone who'll look and announce, "that's my baby sister". After Christmas we rearranged "your" room to make it "y'all's" room and this brought a whole new realness to this sister thing and you've had a few cross words here and there. You're pretty protective of your things and want to make sure that we know what is yours and what's EG's. But you happily welcome anything new for her and were quite distressed when we mailed her blanket to her. I can't wait for her to get her to see how the two of you do together. (I'll probably be regretting those words soon, I'm sure!) But I know having such a great Big Sister so close by will be priceless for Eliza Grace and I know you're going to play a big role in her transition from her foster family to ours.
Miss Moo, I don't know what we did before you. I know it was a lot less colorful around her, there wasn't quite as much giggling, it was a lot less sticky, and I went months at a time with out saying the word tutu. I had whole tubes of chap stick that did not have the ends gnawed off and no one in this house appreciated my shoes! We love you little girl and love how you've turned us upside down!
These are a few pictures from your birthday morning. You've caught your brother's lego bug, but he doesn't think you're old enough to play with his. So, you got some of your very own. You have had so much fun building and rearranging your new Duplo circus and pet shop. You also got two new books. Goldalicious and Mary Englebreit's collection of Fairy Tales (to go with her Nursery Rhymes & Nursery Tales books you already have). You LOVE it and we have read most of them already! It was your favorite gift you said (that was before you got tutus and pretend cupcakes from Granna & Pat Pat!). You had a great day and were much loved on! Thanks to everyone for making it such a special day for our Miller!
