My girl is three! Wow! Three is so much fun! There are definitely some more challenging parts, but I love love the conversations that I get to have with this sweet girl!
We had a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese for Kennedy this year. Kennedy loves large characters and pizza, so Chuck E Cheese really is her favorite place (although we have yet to go to Disneyland so this could change soon!)
Kennedy sleeps through the night almost every night. We got rid of the pacifier when she turned three, and it has been surprisingly easy. She is only napping 2-3 days a week, but she will lay in her crib (yep! Still in a crib) for about an hour.
Kennedy really enjoys playing with other children and is very interactive now. She loves seeing her friends, chasing other kids, dancing, playing games, and make believe. She has conversations with children her age which is totally cute!
Books: Nursery Rhymes (she knows almost all by heart), Fairy Tale Collection, Corduroy, and she can read most of the board books we have by memory. I love it when she "reads" to Violet!
Foods: Sausage, meat, oatmeal, crackers, cookies, quesadillas, and carrots with bbq sauce or ketchup (weird!)
Songs: Pirate Code (from Jake and the Neverland Pirates), ABC's, Children of the World, all of the songs from music class. Kennedy also has some seriously awesome dance moves!
Toys: Kennedy loves playing pretend. We use the couch as our ship and pretend to be Peter Pan or Jake almost daily. The baby dolls are also in heavy rotation as various other Peter Pan and Jake characters. Kennedy also loves chapstick and carrying around her chapstick in her purses.
Kennedy's comprehension always surprises me. She asks lots of "why" questions, is very concerned about how people are feeling, and remembers very obscure things. It's so much fun to watch her grow in this way.
The pictures that Kennedy draws are pretty great! She can draw a human figure with almost all of its body parts. Today she even included boobs :)
Knows almost all of her capital letters and a handful of lowercase.
Still pretty unsure in her climbing and gross motor abilities. She can do a lot, but she is afraid to unless I'm right with her.
Dresses herself and is fully potty trained.
Has some level of understanding about Jesus and his sacrifice. Knows that God made everything and about his love for us. Has many short bible verses memorized via songs.
I am having so much fun with this girl these days! She is such a daddy's girl which I love and hate. Daddy is always the one she wants when she is sad, and daddy does her bedtime routine. She is tender and kind, and loves taking care of babies. Kennedy tries to do things correctly and does not like to disappoint other people.
