Our Little Princess is 3!

Today is Elaine’s 3rd birthday.  We all partied like princesses on Saturday night.  Elaine’s three bestest friends were in attendance, and Grandma & Grampa Hamilton were able to come down as well.  Here are my scrapbook pages from the party.  Click on the image if you want to enlarge it.

Neither Ben nor I grew up having big birthday parties.  It was a family affair.  But…Elaine has been talking about her birthday since the string of family birthdays in July.  So we put together a small princess party for her three friends at church.  She certainly enjoyed all of the attention!  When the doorbell rang she started jumping up and down shouting, “My friends!  My friends!  My friends!”

At three years old, Elaine is a chatterbox who loves all things prissy, girly, and princess-y.  She is especially into Cinderella and Mary Poppins.  She loves to read and write or color.  She knows her alphabet and loves to point out the “E’s” all over the city!  When it comes to numbers, though, everything is 1-2-11-6.  Elaine is a big girl now, and enjoys separating herself from her “Nolan baby brudder” by not wearing a bib, not needing a lid on her cup, and getting dressed all by herself.  Though she has a stubborn streak {like her mommy} she makes me smile every day and I can’t imagine life without my Little Princess!

Happy 3rd Birthday Elaine!
