Our she baby is looking bigger each day.

even though she still easily fits into the 18-24 month sizes most days.

Her 3rd birthday fell on a friday.
a friday that her Daddy was scheduled to work a 24 hour shift.
We decided to postpone the festivities until the following day.

She had us sing to her several times & insisted we relight her candles each time.
Presley is enchanting.
sensitive, yes. 
sassy, sometimes.
sweet, always.

we still say we wish she were a twin. We could happily raise 2 Presley girls. 

The morning consisted of donuts, candles, presents & 
one very exhausted father who had just worked the night shift.
But he wanted to be up for her birthday breakfast.
A good man indeed.
& let me make note that he has carried on the tradition..
flowers for our baby girl with a note to keep. 
it melts me how much he loves her, & her him. 

She hesitantly opened her new doll house decor & people from her Omah & Opah. 
We brought her doll house down from her nursery & she played house while
in her new nightgown & her curls tosseled about from the night. 

After nap time we took the children out for dinner.
The restraunt was NOT a hit. 
Presley clung to me for dear life & the boys were even nervous. 
(but the most fun part: we asked for no onion for Rod's meal & they slathered it with onion...& he is allergic. yikes.)
We dragged our selves home after a not so succesful meal out with 5 wee ones & sat down to birthday cake for presley. & then moose decided it was his birthday too...& so we sang to him too. 


Presley has had a rough few months.
Anemia has kept her pretty darn lethargic. 
Right now She is not a typical playful girl.
She is serious. 
very very serious.
She wants to sit in her spot on the couch & thumb through pinkalicous books all day.
When I take her outside, she will find q piece of chalk and silently draw.
When we go to the pool...she fills her watering can & pours water by the pools edge.
I pray she will living up soon.
her juice each morning is a cocktail of supplements.

that aside...

she is my perfect dolly.
I love that sweet baby.
I do.

Happy Birthday Presley! We relate to the long shifts. June and July are yucky months for third year residents while the interns get orientated!
She is positively beautiful!
