3 Balloons For the Birthday Girl

I cannot believe that my sweet girl turned 3 today. It feels weird to be the mother of a 3 year old. I feel like the baby in her is completely gone. I am no longer the mother of a baby. I am the mother of a little girl. Whoa.

James has been out of town all week which has been really hard. I sort of feel like a single parent when he is gone. Not fun at all.  I wanted to be a super rockstar mom and spend the whole day with Sophia, but the reality was that I had to go to class. I tried to make her lunch somewhat special with my homemade card and heart shaped sandwich. It was a pathetic attempt at creativity.  I was really sad dropping her off at preschool this morning, but I know she is in good hands.
After I got out of school, we headed to my parents' house. My mom was gracious enough to invite us let me invite myself to dinner. I have been mooching off of them a lot lately because it is really hard to cook for just myself and Sophia.  I really do feel like my mom does such a great job of taking care of me when James is out of town. Love you Mom! Although my dad is out of town also, my sister and my two brothers and my grandma were able to come for dinner. It was so nice to be surrounded by family to celebrate Sophia's birthday.  We made some delicious grass fed beef sliders with homemade sweet potato fries and fresh watermelon. Sophia got a kick out of the "baby burgers". What a great summer meal!

After dinner we headed out for gelato. Sophia chose chocolate. Big surprise. She is just like her mama. She LOVES chocolate.  I was shocked that she barely ate half of the gelato. I think it may have been too rich for her. Needless to say, I think she enjoyed it! We will be getting together with James' parents over the weekend for even more celebrating. I'm pretty sure Sophia thinks her birthday is the entire month of June because we have been celebrating so much! I am glad she is finally old enough to understand the excitement of her birthday! I think she has had more sugar this week than she has had in the past 3 years. I'm okay with it. Birthdays are the best excuse for having sugar overload ;)

Happy Birthday my sweet girl! I am so proud to be your Mama!
