Claire's Birthday Checklist

Your favorite toy for playing is: Dress Up Clothes

Your favorite toy for snuggling is: Minnie Mouse

Your favorite food is: bagel ("with terster on it")

Your favorite book is: Backyard Beach (or that's what you call it anyway...  It's one of those vocabulary board books for babies, with pictures and different words - shovel, bucket, towel, etc.  You call it Backyard Beach because of the Phineas and Ferb song, which is incidentally your favorite song.  Dad and I ask you questions about the pictures, like, "Which one is the healthy snack?  How many shells are there?" and so on).

Your favorite activity is: Wrestle Night (which is always said with lots of exclamation points)

Your favorite place to go is: Monkey Joe's

Your best friend is: Mary Grace (close second, Lexi, aka your nemesis)

Something new that you're doing:  twirling your hair, and we're over it so please stop

Something you've mastered:  potty training (hurrah!)

Something people say about you:  "She is so well behaved!"

Something that you're saying is:  "...because I love it," (added at the end of requests, as in, "Can I have a bagel, with terster on it, because I love it?")

Something Dad and I are proud of you for:  you are so good at sharing your toys.

Something surprising about you:  you like really spicy foods, like Buffalo chicken.  Mommy made some Buffalo Chicken Dip, and you inhaled it.

Hope claire had a great birthday, I am a March baby too and I think it's the best month to be born in..that way you get all of the Christmas presents you wanted and didn't get at Christmas.

Dumb question...what is "terster"?

"Terster" is how Claire says "toaster." So if she wants something toasted she says, "I want terster on it!" It's very cute.

That's quite a list for a three year old! Wow.

So proud of her for being a sharer - Abby tries but is not good at it...
