On December 16th, my little girl turned three. She's come a long way in three years, wouldn't you say?(Click here to see her birth picture.)

This girl is a delight: a wiggly, busy, giggly bundle of joy. I wouldn't have her any other way. Calla adds a big dose of happy to our family.

She's a big sister now, which has been a tremendous adjustment for her in the past month. She is learning to be gentle with Katee and they are beginning to bond--especially during bath time when they giggle and take turns washing each other's arms.

Calla wanted a "puppy party at Grammy's house" for her birthday this year and that is just what she got.

I was so thankful Grammy and Papa agreed to host the party this year. Such a blessing during this transition stage of life.

We served a waffle bar for dinner.

Topping choices included blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, bananas, Nutella, peanut butter, chocolate chips, butter, syrup, sprinkles, and whipped cream.

Of course, there was puppy cake for dessert.

Ian and I agreed that our favorite part of the evening was watching Calla enjoy every bit of her party. In true Calla fashion, she was full of energy!

Every time she opened a gift, she broke out into giggles. She loved her FurReal puppy from her cousins.

(Unfortunately, poor Katee did not agree!)

Surrounded by her family, Calla was celebrated and loved on her special day.

And just like that, my little Calla turned THREE! What a blessing to be her mama. I am thankful for each and every day I have with her.

I can remember Jess asking for prayers for you in the hope Calla could 'stay put' for longer. And I've been Blessed to follow the growth of your family ever since.

God Bless you all and thank you for sharing your family with us.

LOVE that awesome/priceless candle pic...I remember her Bday three years ago the fragile tiny babe that she was. I can hardly believe it has been that long(dare I say I am feeling old?). Happpy bday princess! May the world give you all you ask for and the Lord help you be gracious for all that falls inbetween...

we have that same silly puppy. I'm with Katee, I dislike it but the kiddos love it. Can't believe she is three already! Happy Birthday Calla!
