Dear Natalie Doris,
Happy third birthday, Pudge-girl! Three years ago, we were surprised to welcome a daughter into our family and we've never been the same since.
You are still a Mama's girl, but this year, you've branched out a bit (probably because your mom has not been such a fun mom this year of endless pregnancy) and love spending time with Lala, Ninang, Kate and Glory, Aunt Teenie, and Grandma Dori...Dad, too, sometimes. You like to talk on the phone and love spending the night at Lala's house.
This year, you are most looking forward to becoming a big sister. You and Sam talk about being a big sister and big brother to our new baby at least daily. You've practiced holding your dolls, covering them, snuggling them, giving them binkies, singing them songs, strapping them into the swing, putting them in the car seat ad infinitum. You are very loving, if not very gentle. I think you're going to make a great big sister. Lampie will be lucky to have you.
Here's to a great year ahead. You add sass and adventure to our family every day and we wouldn't want it any other way.
Love, Mom and Dad
