mamie sister is 3 (sniff sniff)

Mamie sister (my little baby) turned three last Friday. She was almost my valentine baby. We woke her up early before Jon went to work on her birthday so she could open her gifts. The girls and I were heading to Huntsville for the weekend after school, so that was the only time that her daddy could see her open everything. I love her crazy bedhead.
I can't believe she is already three. She has the funniest little personality and everywhere we go someone says something about her croaky little voice. She is so different from her big sister, but still likes to copy everything Lilly does. She is so cuddly and always comes and finds me to tell me she loves me and wants a hug or a kiss. She is not at all interested in learning anything (letters, her name, etc) from me--I am hoping preschool will help that some next fall. At this age, Lilly would have liked to sit and play school all day long. Mamie LOVES coloring, hard puzzles, all of her babies and their strollers, blankets, bottles, etc, puppy dogs, and Scooby Doo. She tries to wear her red cow sweater every day of her life and loves sleeping in her footie "tajamas." She will not dress up in any dress-up clothes even though Lilly has about 5 wardrobe changes minimum per day. She is a very picky eater and her teachers probably think I am a weirdo based on what I send in her lunchbox. She hates peanut butter, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, milk, beef, deli meat, all sandwiches, most vegetables, etc. She loves strange things like pickles, hard-boiled and scrambled eggs, ham (has to be baked--not deli meat), guacamole, salsa, fish, baby spinach with lots of dressing on it, popcorn, chips, almost all fruits--especially kiwi, and unfortunately pop-tarts are her breakfast of choice. I try to sneak in scrambled eggs and fruit, but she has a serious craving for cinnamon pop-tarts first thing in the morning. I love you sweet little Mamie sister.


a ring like Lilly's and some silly bands!







Mamie LOVES Handy Manny. She and Lilly have been "fixing" lots of things around the house with Mamie's new tools :)

And, Mamie also found out she was allergic to penicillin for her birthday. Isn't this pitiful? She got a horrible ear infection the week before and then we discovered that she had developed an allergy to penicillin. She was covered in this rash from head to toe and couldn't even sleep at night. The picture really doesn't do it justice. I guess I should be glad it wasn't a worse reaction.

Lyla,

Bethany has the same allergy to Penicillin, and she reacted the same way when she was little.
Love your blog,

I cannot believe Mamie is three! Cade is right behind her and it makes me sad, too (and he is equally as picky of an eater!)
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl! We love you- and I am with you on the cinnamon pop tarts- yum!!!

Awwww. So sweet to read about Mamie from her mommy's eyes. Love a kid with a lot of personality! Poor thing in that last picture is pitiful. Beau has a penicillin allergy, too, so we, too, have looked almost exactly like that, only he was much younger when we found out. I hope you girls had a great weekend in Huntsville, and that Mamie had a great birthday!
