With BabyCakes' 3rd birthday right before Christmas, another Little June photo shoot was due.
In addition to her wearing my pearl necklace, I plan to encourage her to wear something that reflects who she is at every birthday we are lucky enough to celebrate with our girl.
Originally I wanted white or cream for her clothes every year but this blush-colored dress reminded me of her perfectly pink skin. With the layers of frills on the bottom, it's not what I would have picked, but it is very her, and that's what's important. Her hair is untamed -- just the way she likes it these days.
BabyCakes, this is you at 3.
You are a fun and friendly child... when you want to be.
You're independent and fearless... when you want to be.
And you are loving and sweet... when you want to be.
Most of the time you are all of these wonderful qualities, but you always live your life on your terms.
You have a firm grasp of who you are and what you want, not one to be easily swayed.
This should serve you well in life.
I love you, my beautiful child!
