Happy Birthday Wesleigh!!

My girl turned 3 today, and I don't think I've ever witnessed such a sweet birthday. She has always loved birthdays and says "happy birthday" all the time. The last bday party we went to was my nephew Rylan's. Last night she kept saying, "happy birthday Rylan". This is the conversation that followed (a couple of times):
me: Tomorrow is going to be happy birthday Wesleigh!
W: me?????
me: Yes you.
W: you?????
me: No Wesleigh
W: me??????
(we're working on the pronoun thing) :-)

I think it might lose some of it's sweetness when you can't hear her little voice asking "me".

She was so excited all day and was so patient. The joy she got from having "happy birthday" sang to her brought tears to my eyes. I had to catch myself before I started blubbering. It is just unfathomable to imagine life without her. The sweet, joyful spirit she exuded all day today has left me feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

Here are just a couple of pics from today. I am going to do a 3 yr. post in the next couple of days, but I'm exhausted from this bday weekend and slumber parties!!

Happy Birthday Wesleigh Jane!

I agree with you, there is something super sweet about my little girl's birthday too. She has had 2 birthday's with us and she had 2 in China. The Happy Birthday song is her favorite, she loves to make pretend birthday cakes, pretend candles, etc.

I'm glad you guys had a fun day and I look forward to seeing more pictures of your sweetie!

Happy Birthday to sweet little Wesliegh! She just looks darling and I love the innocent little pronoun conversation. Those stages are so fleeting and so precious. I cannot believe she is 3!!!! This year has flown in so many ways. But as I think back to all the ways W has grown and blossomed it is truly amazing!

I am glad you had such a nice family celebration!!! I know what you mean about blubbering during the HB song. I have had those same emotions overwhelm me at the same time. It is like you can feel and see so clearly God's miracles in your life.


Lots of love and b-day wishes from us:)

Finally had some down time to lay in my bed with my computer tonight and catch up on fb and blogs. Hadn't been on in a while. Oh my Lord!! Jennifer, I can't believe that it has been a year, that she is 3, and how stinkin' cute she is!! What a truly HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! We really do need to catch up. I would love to try to see everyone for some kind of 40 thing, just don't know how realistic it would be. Catch me up on Wesleigh's sister when you get a chance. BTW, love the new "clean" blog!!
Love you, Fran

Happy Birthday Wesleigh! So sweet, I can just imagine her voice from video in the past. She's got a good family. :)

And I SO want her clothes in adult sizes! Seriously, I LOVE that skirt, it's so perfect on her. You've got the best taste in clothes! *wanders off to see what goofiness I can find in adult sizes*
