I have a three-year-old. She was born December 20, 1998.
I love this age, although the first few months of it were pretty rough. Right now we're going through a relatively smooth stretch although she can still be infuriating about things.
She's always singing both songs she's heard and songs she's made up. One of my favorites is "a donut, a donut, I love a donut, what's a donut about?" (We're health food nuts and she's maybe had a donut 2x in her life.)
She started drawing people and animals a few months ago. I love seeing dogs wearing dresses as interpreted by a 3 y.o.
She's determined. She'll wake up in the morning and inform me "we're going to the toy store today," get dressed herself, bring me my shoes, grab my hand, and say "come on." LOL, it's really hard to refuse her when she does that.
She's very affectionate. She loves to cuddle and hug and kiss.
She loves to dress up. Whatever she puts on she always has bunny ears on too so she'll be a "bunny wizard" or a "bunny princess," etc.
She asks so many questions!!! And often they are very obvious ones, like "where are we going?" when I've just told her, and then "where are we going?" again even after I've told her again. If I deflect the question back to her, she knows the answer. I think she just asks to make conversation. Sometimes this drives me insane!
She is very friendly. She'll talk with people we meet in our daily journeys every day. This is wild to me since neither my husband or I are like that and her older sister isn't either.
She's a copycat. She repeats everything her 5 y.o. sister says. She's not trying to be annoying. She's just trying to make conversation again, and she knows what her big sister says is usually pretty intelligent
Today we were at a neighbor's house learning how to take care of her cats (we're catsitting this weekend), and my older daughter said "ewww gross" about the litter clumps and my younger one repeated her. It was so cute to hear that coming out of her 3 y.o. mouth.
She's nowhere near potty trained, but I think I'm going to start a separate thread about that.
She still nurses to go to sleep and wake up, but if something pre-empts "mmmms," she's okay with it. This is a huge deal! It has only been a few months since my dh has been able to put her to bed instead of me. It's great being able to go out with friends in the evening occasionally.
