Happy Birthday Quailee! Today is your 3rd birthday. We are so blessed to be your family. What a phenomenal little one you are. Your birthday party is coming up next month and we’ll share our gratitude for you soon. But for now I’d like to note some of your favorite things right now and throughout this past year as you have blossomed into such a, well, such a YOU of a person. Much love…
The Quail’s Favorite Things:
Favorite TV Show: Dora the Explorer (With Barney running a close second)
Favorite Breakfast: apple/prune smoothie, kefir and a bowl of Tastee-O’s
Favorite Lunch: pancakes with zzzzzzzzz (that’s her word for whipped cream)
Favorite Dinner: Chicken nuggets with ketchup
Favorite Fruit: Bananas & Raisins (I’d be hard pressed to say which is number 1)
Favorite Veggie: none if she can help it, but she willing drinks a green-bean smoothie with dinner each night
Favorite Dessert: yes. Just be sure to offer her one, I will say in a mixed batch of Holiday treats she did go for the brownies routinely, and at one of our favorite bakeries she picks the gingerbread man each and everytime inspite of the soft swirls of frosting on every cookie around them.
Favorite Drink: Kefir
Favorite Color: yellow
Favorite Restaurant: McDonalds- and please be sure to get her the Cheeseburger happy meal, hold the fries. If you don’t she’ll swipe yours.
Favorite Sport: gymnastics and rascalin’ with her Stister
Favorite Toy: her duck-ducks that she sleeps with, pretend food and dishes and baby dolls
Favorite Song: “We Did it!” from Dora the Explorer, although turn on a peppy or sweet tune and you are almost guaranteed a dance partner.
Favorite Book: yes. Girlfriend loves to look through books and be read to.
Best Friend: Mariah & Zuzu
Favorite Day of the week: I think every day. Monday is gym class, tuesday is happy meal night, wednesday she sees her buddies Monique and Amy, thursday she sees Jodie and Suzy and friday she sees Melissa, Karen and Ashley and weekends are homedays with her familial peeps. She goes to school Monday through Friday and loves her teachers Miss Christil and Miss Shaina. Yes alot of those are therapists, but the Quail loves to go to school and is pretty territorial over her personal one-on-one time when her favorite grown-ups come to play
Favorite Time of the day: playing peek-a-boo through the crib rails with Daddy, when she sees Momma (or Daddy) picking her up from school- (love the greeting like it’s been months since she last saw us!) and night-night time when she snuggles into your shoulder and then asks you to kiss her duck-ducks before she snoozes off
Favorite Outfit: her coat- it mean’s we’re headed out on an adventure!
Favorite place to go: school and home- I’d say there is an equal level of excitement for both arrivals
