Lil Geek turns 3

Posted on Dec 04, 2012 under family | No Comment

Oh, Lil Geek. You’re 3. I still can’t believe it.

It’s hard to look back at an entire year. There were so many great moments. From little ones, like watching you at the zoo, to big events, like you dressing as a Tootsie Roll for Halloween.

You traveled, went to baseball games, danced at restaurants, made forts, colored, played with Play-Doh and so much more.

You are a ball of energy and every moment with you makes everyone around you feel more alive.

One moment. One moment out of thousands to remember your third year of life.

One night we were rocking on the rocking chair and you looked at me and said, “Love you, so much.”

That was a big one.

The first time you said, “Nuggle more minutes.” That’s your way of asking us to snuggle a few more minutes.

Maybe it was the time you read a book to me. You had memorized it, but you were so happy.

No, my favorite moment is definitely this: We were driving home one night and you were tired. You were asking for something, I can’t remember what exactly. I would say no, you would ask again. After about the 10th time, you started to laugh.

“No!”
“Yes!” You’d yell back and giggle.
“No!”
“Yes!”

Your mom was laughing and our shouts and laughter filled the car. We couldn’t see each other’s faces, but I know we were all smiling. For just a few minutes the world melted away and it was just us three in the car, in the dark, laughing like crazy people.

Lil Geek, you’re growing into such a sweet girl. I couldn’t be prouder of you.

We love you. Happy birthday my little maniac.
