three

The way your eyes squint and sparkle when you smile. The way you suck those two fingers 'til they blister. The way you love chocolate. The way you over-think everything. The way you say "yuv you".  The way you get shy around grown up's. The way you love sushi. The way you stroke your sisters cheeks. The way you hug my leg. The way you toddle through the house with no clothes on. The way you stroke your belly button when you're tired. The way you love books. The way you try so very hard at everything you do. The way call your sister "Mahwheet". The way you get so bloody intense sometimes. The way you love to hang out with Daddy. The way you boss the dogs around. The way you boss us around. The way you feel equally familiar and mysterious to me. The way you've always gotta have the last word. The way you pinch your nose when someone farts (not me! ;). The way you don't like tomatoes. The way you finish a belly laugh with a high pitched sigh. The way you've got us wrapped around your little finger. 

The way you are. We love it all. Happy birthday darling girl.
