Deb and I had no idea that we were introducing pure evil into the world three years ago today. We're glad that Nana and Papa sent the hat you see here. It obscures all the sixes.
The truth is, she's not evil, she's three.
Deb and I made Julia so that Allie wouldn't be lonely. We didn't really intend to fall in love with her. But it happened and there's not a lot we can do about that now.
Of course we'll always love Allie more. In fact, quite a bit more. Nonetheless, we can't help but have a soft spot for Julia and so far that has kept her from being left on the neighbor's doorstep.
I'd write something serious here, but it would deteriorate into another lament about my children growing up so quickly. I see it every single day. Julia's recent language explosion has been a lot of fun. The number to bon mots that flow out her mouth are astounding. You want examples? I can't think of any. You'll just have to trust me.
Julia's party yesterday was a fun one. You can see photos by clicking here. If you're interested in the annual waterfight movie, it's up and in the multimedia portion of the site.

Dan and Amy got together to sing happy birthday to Julia. It's a great clip that you can see by clicking here.
Thanks to everyone who came or sent gifts. Julia had a lovely day thanks to your thoughtfulness and generosity. As far as thank you notes go, well, most of you know our track record with those things. I'm certain they'll arrive before the Christmas cards.
Happy birthday, Julia!
