12/30/16 I truly cannot believe you are already 3, but I feel like you could be 4.  You are far from baby and true toddler now.  You potty trained about 2 months ago with flying colors.  Like most things, once you make up your mind, it's going to way or another...which isn't always a good thing, but when it comes to giving up paci, weaning, transition to big bed and potty training, it's all thumbs up!  You are into all things boy, rockets, weapons, balls and blue....and bit of princess, thanks to sister.  You love books, baths, outdoors, school, songs (if it's your choice).  You are so sweet, but hard-headed...a great sleeper, most of the, but manipulative...happy , unless woken from a nap.  You are truly one amazing "4 year old", at least that's what you been telling everyone since you were 2...they may actually start believing that soon, according to, Dr. Moore's stats at your 3 year appointment:  

Weight:  38#2 95%
Height:  39.5". 91%
