three weeks until...

candy cane

Three weeks today, we'll be boarding the plane to Ireland. Lilah is beyond excited and this morning when I told her it was just three weeks, I got the expression in the picture above.

Of course, that expression could also just be the fact that I mentioned the number 3. As you can well imagine, in a three year olds mind, there is nothing quite as amazing as the number 3. Really. Truly. She points out every single number 3 while in the car, in the mall, in the Bible and dear helps us all, the whole way around the grocery store. In fact, Colin was wearing a shirt yesterday that he's had for years and neither of us noticed it had the number 3 on it, but Lilah did!

I'm not sure what's going to happen when she turns three-and-a-half in another 11 days!

She has also caught onto the days of the week. Almost every day has a special signifigance, some of the highlights are: Tuesday is Bible Reading, Friday is Playgroup, Saturday is Family Day, Sunday is Sunday School, etc. And at night time when we're putting her into the crib, she'll ask us, "What day will it be when I wake up?" So cute!

By the way, have I ever mentioned her love for candy canes? She roped me into buying her a box of strawberry flavour yesterday and the head band a few weeks ago. She is such a sweetheart and I love her beyond words. I took this picture of her this morning, even though it's out of focus, I look at it and see my girl, it's so her, happy happy happy and busy!
