Little K at 3

February was birthday month for my little girl. She turned three and rocked a Peso penguin party. So I'm a little late posting this, but here is a snapshot of Little K at 3. She's an affectionate little girl and loves her brother and Sandy. She misses her brother when he's at school. She loves babies and big cheeks and has the best laugh. She took off her teething necklace and asks for nail polish but then wants it taken off the next day. She loves to read and colour and draw. She's shy with pretty much everyone.

The new things in the past half a year (since her 2.5 year old post) are that she's fully potty trained, in a big girl bed, and has all her teeth. Her hair has definitely grown and is now mullet-ish, she has a few freckles here and there, and gets scared during movies (hello Frozen monster) and books. She goes up the stairs with one foot per stair and is good at flossing and brushing but bad at spitting.

Potty training was hit and miss but she finally got it just before her birthday. We still put her in a diaper overnight just in case. Changing sheets in the middle of the night is no fun.

Little K is still adventurous with food but doesn't eat all that much. At dinner she always eats the meat first while Little J eats the carbs first. She ate only the icing on her birthday cake. She doesn't drink milk except chocolate milk if we go out and likes juice. She drinks a lot of water and nurses before bed and in the morning.

Little K is a great little talker but still struggles with some words. She is always saying "I love you, mama" which melts my heart every time. Some funny things she says:
- Ecause for because
- That's adoramous!

Her sleep habits haven't changed much in the past 6 months. She still nurses to sleep around 8pm (though she doesn't HAVE to and I have missed a few bedtimes) and wakes up around 7am. She naps 1-2 times a week, and functions fine most days without it. 

Little K weighed in at 28 pounds and just over 3 feet tall. That puts her in the 50th percentile for height and between the 10th and 25th for weight. She wears mostly 3T clothing, but some of her 2T stuff still fits. She wears a size 8 shoe and boot and size 5 diapers.
