So yes, three is adorable and ornery and an overall roller coaster. Or rather, almost three has been and I don’t really expect any less from actual phwee, but I am so blessed, so honored to be on this ride as Raegan’s mama. May her smile and her eyes and her heart and her mind always remain as bright and open as they are right now. And correct away as I say it again – Love you, Baby Girl! Happiest of Happies of Birthdays!
Normally, I don’t load posts with lots of pictures, but November 4th isn’t a normal day for us. In the Welschie house, November 4th is officially known as Raegan Leigh Day. And how is it even possible that it is the third – third! – time we are celebrating the day, the birth, of this sweet baby girl (who, incidentally, corrects me daily when I call her this.

The whole leotard with a skirt over jeans and under a monkey hoodie,
all while wearing a Leaf Crown look is priceless.

As much as she’s still my sweet, sweet baby (oops, there’s that word again), she’s also got a classic three-yr-old’s temperament and temper. Thankfully, because this is my second time around, I’m much more skilled at responding to her moments with a calm, “Goodness, it’s hard to be almost three” which allows her to have said moment(s) and then we move on….typically to goofiness such as this:
