Twilli Turns 3

August 7th, 2010 . by 21st Century Dad

It’s been 3 wonderful years and my little baby girl celebrates another birthday. Time really does seem to fly by. The midwife called her a little “puddle.” She was 6 pounds and 6 ounces of pure joy. A false sense of calm preceded the storm. Twilli arrived with much ado and haste. She could not wait to escape her mother’s ovarian bastille.

Over the course of the following year, we witnessed an incredible transformation. This little peanut grew and grew. I grew as a person and discovered more about who I am. We wished Twilli a happy birthday once again.

2009 brought even more changes. After mastering autonomous ambulation, she moved on to expressing herself verbally. Twilli’s healthy chompers ensured that she could enjoy grown up food.

As she develops and grows, none of it really seems like a surprise, but it is no less wonderful. Her personality was evident from the moment she arrived, but to see it come out as she grows is a delight.

This is the girl who pointed to her mom and said, “You! Time out!” On Mother’s Day no less!

Twilli is also fond of all animals. She especially loves dogs and cats. One day, she gets on all fours, turns to me and says, “Now I’m a kitty too! Meow!” Then she crawls away, continuing to meow.

Twilli, you are my truest of true loves. You’re 3 years old today and I love you even more every day. I can’t wait to see when you blossom into an amazing young girl, teenager, and young woman. For now, I’ll enjoy every moment as it comes.
