3 Years of Autumn!

Staying true to myself, I'm about a month late on this post...The saying 'time flies when you're having fun' is 100% accurate! It's hard to believe it's been (over) three years that we were meeting our squishy little baby for the first time. Now she's a talking, sassy, charming little person with personality for days. It's amazing how much she's grown in a few years time.
//Height// 36"

//Weight// 29.8lbs.

//Favorite Food// Spaghetti! Hands down, that's all this kid wants to eat. She loves fruit, smoothies and Boba Tea! Yes, still struggling to get this kid to eat. But the doctor assured us she is growing just fine so not to worry.

//Likes// The park, Home (the movie), being outdoors, arts and crafts, having her face painted. Pretty much everything- girlfriend loves life!

Room on the Broom! The book, the movie, everything. It's even inspired her Halloween costume! She has a little play broom and she gets on then tells E 'I want to fly' so he picks her up and she flies on her broom. Autumn tries to get the rest of us to pick her up like that but nobody flies quite like Dad. She even recites the book and is pretty good at it :)

Playing dress up. She has quite the collection of princess dresses, shoes, crowns, you name it- we got it.
Art! We do some sort of craft, painting, project, etc. almost every night. As soon as I get home, it's 'I want to do a project'. Must be my gal ;)

Holidays! Every day she say's 'is it still Halloween?' I finally had to tell her no it's not yesterday and she said well can we keep the decorations up? Until I told her it's almost time for Christmas and she was equally as excited.
//Dislikes// Sleep. We have hit a really rough patch lately. Last week she would throw tantrums at bedtime and/or would wake up from 1-4am screaming, throwing a tantrum and being overall unable to fall back asleep. This week, she is at least sleeping through the night but has been waking up at 6am she is back to not sleeping through the night. We're in the process of reading the 'No-Cry Sleep Solution for Toddlers/Preschoolers'...wish us luck, sanity and coffee!!!!

Still swimming like a little fish. She is doing amazingly well and blowing us all away. She can now jump off the diving board into 12' and swim to her instructor!
She has also been doing 'dance' one day a week and it's more like dance/gym/singing. But this weekend she gets to start the big girl class of ballet, tap and tumbling.
Autumn also started a pre-school 2 days a week. She's been going for two weeks now and is doing better each time.. Day 1 she did good but thought the little girls were pulling her because they wanted to play. Day 2 she did even better except a kid started crying and she lost her shit and Grandma had to go pick her up. She is definitely learning some very valuable social skills, basic skills and tons of other stuff. She loves school already and we know she is going to benefit so much from this!

//Silly Things She Says//
Calls herself sissy when talking about Jack 'Oh it's ok Jack, Sissy will feed you, I know you're hungry, I know'
Recites the words to 'Room on the Broom'
She loves us to recite movies/books with her. She's say 'ok, now you say ___ and I'll say ___'. Too funny!
There are a million other things that I never remember...

Autumn is so much fun! She is learning so much and teaching us all along the way. I can't imagine my life without this sweet little girl!!
