Peachy: Three and One Half Years

Being a parent is an amazingly wonderful experiences  Don't get me wrong, there are always going to be challenges and struggles. But in the end it mostly boils down to awesomeness. Peachy has recently gone and grown up into a little lady. I daily catch glimpses of the person that she is becoming and it is one of the neatest things.

She is at a point now where she is understanding more and more of how the world works and paying more attention to life as it goes on around her. Seeing her gears turn brings me such a feeling of pride. While she can be slow to warm up and be herself in new situations, it is fun watching her talk to those she knows well and tell them about the goings on in her life.

She is physically looking so much older as well. She is tall for her age and lately her face has really started to narrow. Her hair is still a beautiful shade of red and her eyes are as brown as can be. Such a pretty combination!

As for the big sister role, there are times Peachy relishes it and times she really could care less about Cream. All very typical. :o)

She is always saying funny things. One night she was really testing me during bedtime and I told her I was running out of patience. She replied with, "No, I think you still have one patient in you." Another time I was telling Cream that she need to wait as the world didn't revolve around her. Cream responded with, "No, it revolves around me."

Peachy is now old enough to attend Sunday School at our church. She is loving being old enough to go into the classrooms while we attend Bible Class. She has sung in church with the Sunday School as well and I have to tell you, I was almost crying when I saw her up there.
Our Peachy has such a joyful outlook on life. She is laid-back and almost always coming up with little projects to do. I am really spoiled by a three year old who is able to entertain herself so well. I can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings to her.
