This post is brought to you by the number three.
Three is for three years old.
Our little Sierra is now three years old! She gave us a birthday present by sleeping in till about 6:00 am! Of course we were still up earlyer with Eli… It is the thought that counts right.
Our sleepy head woke up to flowers, a balloon and a card from each of her Grandparents. She loved the kitty on the card from Grandma Bonnie and Grandpa Richard. And upon seeing the money tucked inside she informed us that it was “for buying things with it.” As for the card from Grandma Sheri and Grandpa Kent, well what little kid doesn’t love a singing Elmo card? We were quite sick of it by the end of the morning.
Later that morning we made a no sugar cake from my new cookbook Brandon gave me for Christmas “let Them Eat Vegan!” By Dreena Burton. Sweetened with pure maple syrup, blended up rasin and prunes and topped with vanilla whipped cocoanut cream. Sierra loved it.
Sierra enjoyed tasting every ingredient that went into the cake and giving it a good stir while singing the cookie bakers song by the Laurie Burkner Band.
After lunch we sang happy birthday, blew out candles, ate cake, and finally opened gifts. Sierra has discovered the fun of books that come with CD’s. She enjoys the whole process from pulling the CD out of the book and putting it in the player to listening and singing to the book. She really likes the books that have music and are sung. So for her birthday we gave her copies of some of her favorites as well as a new one to try. Let’s just say she was excited!
Happy Birthday Sierra!
Three is also for three months old.
Eli is now three months old. He loves to smile and laugh. Eli is also quite the conversationalist. He doesn’t like to be left out when we are talking around the dinner table and will insert his opinions with much enthusiasm. Recently he discovered he can roll from his back to his stomach and is constantly practicing it. It almost seems involuntary sometimes.
Happy Third Month Eli!
