Happy Birthday baby girl!



As you may have guessed today's Caroline's b'day, and she's now 3. Without this little one in our family, there'd be a lot less pink, a lot less "pincess" talk, and a lot less laughter. She brings so much to our family--giggles, adventure, drama, singing, and lots of firsts for her AND us. We love her sooooo much!

We've sorta been celebrating her birthday all week since the grandparents all came up at different times.




Today we had her "real" party on her "real" birthday. Here are some good ones from today (I'm actually disappointed that I didn't get enough "good" ones. I KNOW I was driving everybody crazy snapping pictures!):




I'm quickly learning that a whole new world opens up at the age of 3 and we're looking forward to taking advantage of it! We're anticating swim lessons at the Y, play time at The Little Gym, and even ballet classes later this year! I guess she's officially a "big girl", and has grown so much in the last year! I can't believe it's all flashing right before my eyes! Time PLEASE stand still--thankfully I'm good at remembering to take pictures. They DO stand still unlike my now 3 yr. old! LOL! Here are some of my favorites of Caroline from 2008:







Happy Birthday sweet girl! I love you!

Happy Birthday Caroline! She is a cutie!

I understand about wanting time to stand still - one of the good things about wanting to take pictures and scrapbook though - we'll always have the wonderful memories!

Great pictures you took!
