HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Sweetie Baby!

Oh my sweet Claire, happy 3rd birthday to you!

Daddy and I just finished spending an insane amount of time trying to make the duck cupcakes you wanted. They were super hard...
 and I'm not sure if you'll recognize them as ducks, but just know we love you enough to even try. 

It's amazing to me how much you've grown 
(even though you're still teeny tiny)

Shall we take a trip down memory lane? 

Here you are when you turned 1. 
How you hated to be cuddled. 

And of course, here's your best friend Bunny
To think he was actually a shade of pink is amazing

When you were 2, we took you to see the Ocean

You loved 'running' from the waves with Daddy
And feeling the wind in your hair

And this was at our recent trip to Newport Beach
I think you look so old!

Smiling and eating powdered donuts
Life is pretty great - don't you think?

I hope this year brings you many more 'firsts'
I hope you learn many new things
I hope you know that Daddy and I love you more than you'll ever know

Our lives would not be the same without you
You make me smile every.single.day
(especially when you ask to listen to Justin 'Beaver')

So Happy Birthday to you
I love, love, LOVE you!

Happy Birthday! Those are such sweet pictures! She really is such a cute little doll. Have fun celebrating her birthday and be thankful that she's still small enough to hold and cuddle :) (oh, and post pics of your ducky cupcakes!)
