Three years old

Today I have a 3-year-old girl for the first time! I'm so happy that she's been a part of our family.
She was born over 6 weeks premature--it was quite the dramatic fall season that year. I love this picture of her; she was 2 days old.

And age 2:

And just to keep this a little bit sewing related, here's the progress on this year's Halloween costume, so far:

I was a preemie 60 years ago, born two months early. There is something special about these little fighters. She is absolutely gorgeous!!! Give her a big kiss for me.
