Happy (almost) Birthday, Griffin Joy!

Someone please tell me how it's possible that I'm writing a third birthday post for my baby girl!  She doesn't officially turn three until Sunday and she has been talking about "pink cakes" (pink cupcakes) for at least a month :)


Griffin Joy - you are independent, joyful and determined.  At almost three years old you adore your baby doll, your brothers and cheese and crackers.  You are the first one up every morning and you love to crawl into our bed and give the sweetest kisses (as sweet as kisses can be at 5:30 am).  



You ask us daily if it's the day for dance and/or the day for church.  You want to do everything that your brothers do and you can roughhouse and wrestle with the best of them.  You make the BEST pretend tea and cookies and your TV shows of choice are currently Bubble Guppies and Sofia the First.


You are incredibly smart and don't forget anything!  You insist on doing most things "I-self" and you will figure out a way to get what you need whether that means dragging chairs around and/or climbing.  You are free spirited and are always excited to meet new people.  You love to cruise the golf course and always pick out your bows in the morning because "it's a match!".  


Griffin Joy, you hung the moon - and we couldn't love you more!

  10. Griffen is obviously your favorite child and I can't wait to see her rebel against you when she's a teenager. She rules your house and you're raising a total brat. Good job.

    1. I don't know why you would write that. She writes lovingly about all her children and I think Griffen seems like a sweet little girl.

    4. Anonymous - I agree with Ida wholeheartedly. I have followed this blog for many years and it is clear how much she loves all her children. Your statement is nothing more than an expression of your own ill will. Why on earth would you feel comfortable even making such a despicable comment ? I question your motivation for coming here and doing so. You elevate your own immaturity and your words speak volumes about your character and intent. Shame on you. Andrea, your tributes for each of your children's birthdays were a beautiful expression of your love for each of them.

    5. I feel like this comment is unnecessary on a post that celebrates a child's birthday. I wonder how she will feel when she reads it one day.

    6. Wow original Anonymous - comments like this are such drivel. You "can't wait to see her rebel as a teenager"? You call this child a "brat"? I hope you got your kicks out making such a juvenile bellicose comment - you might consider a personal character check for your own bratty behavior.

  15. What a cute family you have, as well as a birthday girl!!

    Do you mind sharing the MKTO instrumental group? I love how the words aren't heard and considering using it in my end of the DVD movie I make with my 3rd graders...if you don't mind sharing.
