Brooklyn - 3 1/2 years


Height: 40 inches
Weight: 33.6 lbs

I love seeing how much she's grown in just 6 short months. She's certainly taller and wearing mostly 4's but her development in the last 6 months is astounding! She's become more independent -an "I can try it myself" kind of gal rather than immediately depending on one of us.

She's growing into such a helper. She jumps at the chance to help clear dishes, dust, sort laundry, or get a toy for Griffin or Dylan which she'd done before, but now does it without us even asking.

She's more social and outgoing. She's the kid who sees other children at the playground and runs up an says "Hey guys wanna play?!". This has me so excited and scared all at once. I adore seeing her put herself out there and the excitement on her face when she meets a new friend, how she's inclusive and welcoming. I'm also petrified of the days to come when inevitably there will be kids who don't want to play or aren't as kind to her. 

She is much more excited about Dylan than she was Griffin. Maybe because she's older or because we talked about it more while I was pregnant or possibly because she realized after Griffin that no one was going anywhere :) and having a sibling was pretty awesome.

There's definitely still boundary testing and pushing but at this age is more in her tone of voice or her attitude and is often her just wanting attention. 

Milestones and things to remember:
  • She had her 1st dance recital. 
  • She's officially moved from the toddler to the EC program at school. I have a preschooler!
  • Became a big sister (again)!
  • Can now ride her tricycle without constantly crashing into the curb! (Tr: she can steer!)
  • Her imagination is in full swing! Her pretend play is so creative and less "matter of fact"
  • Completely solo on the potty! Like she just goes in on her own and can go, redress and wash up with zero help from us!!
  • Can get herself dressed (unless there are small buttons)- including shoes!
