Thought I'd try to give Layla her time in the limelight as a three year old before Baby Brother arrives tomorrow!
Here's our sweet beauty girl on her THIRD birthday!
And here she is being her sassy self :)
For her birthday, the four of us went to our favorite local breakfast place to have a special breakfast, and then for lunch I took Layla and Landon to their new favorite discovery - the McDonalds on "other side of town" (I say that in quotes bc Manhattan is NOT big), which has an awesome play place.
We had brownies after dinner and watched part of Frozen. That's a good day in Layla's books!
When we went to the doctor about a month ago, Layla was in the 86th percentile for height, and the 75th percentile for weight. She's so tall! She's wearing all 4t clothes, but even some of those are starting to be a little small...won't be long before she graduates to 5t probably!
Layla loves to talk. As a second born and a girl, she talks WAY more than Landon did at her age. She puts multiple complex sentences together, and is usually pretty good at communicating what she wants.
If you couldn't tell by her percentile statistics, girlfriend likes to eat! She's enjoyed eating all the good stuff in America, although it's interesting that she has decided she prefers chicken nuggets at McDonalds over hamburgers. Guess that's what happens when she's spent more of her life in India than America! (actually, she's probably pretty 50/50 now that we've been back for a few months!) She loves green beans, bananas, spaghetti, fruit snacks, crackers (Goldfish, animal crackers, Cheezits, basically anything!).
Layla loves anything Minnie Mouse, although she also likes Frozen, Sofia, and Doc McStuffins. But Minnie truly has her heart :) Here she is opening the Minnie Mouse doll we got her for her birthday:
Layla loves to play with PlayDoh, cut paper with scissors, and paint. She also loves to wrestle like a crazy woman with Landon and Dad. She still loves being outside, whether it's playing at the park or in the snow! She's ornery, dramatic, sassy, and yet the sweetest snuggly girl at the same time!
She's slightly oblivious to the fact that she's about to get a baby brother for her birthday, but she's about to figure that one out! Little Love has been such a source of laughter and joy for the past three years! We sure love her a lot!
Here are a few more pics of our big girl:
