Time to conquer the 3's

I can't believe Ashlyn is three today. Where did the time go? Sometimes I think of her as a LOT older than she is and then other times I think, THERE IS NO STINKEN WAY SHE IS THREE ALREADY!!! She started preschool this year and has started to talk more and more each and every day. Like yesterday she found a Lego magazine and in it is a LegoLand ad. She repeated at least 100's (no joke) that she wanted to go there on the dragon ride. She did not understand the distance of LegoLand and that we could just not get up and leave to go. I returned the magazine back to the boys room so I won't have to hear about the dragon ride as often, but she still has brought it up today a bit. Also now if she would only show some interest in potty training!!! Ashlyn is FULL of energy like I mean a TON any time we go out I hear comments like man I wish I had that much energy. I always reply no you don't because SHE NEVER STOPS!!! Naps are pretty much out of the equation now, but I make her go to her room for a few hours after lunch. However I am still grateful for this time because I recall Teagan and Rayle stopped taking naps well before their second birthdays. As I am trying to plan for a party for this girl I am so torn. She loves so many different things, but nothing really stands out as her all time fav. She loves her brothers, and when I asked her last night if she would ever want a little sister, she said no. When I asked her why she said because then I would have to share my toys! Seriously funny! Today she said she would not mind a brother, because she would still have all the toys to herself! Ashlyn makes life interesting that is for sure! LOVE THAT GIRL!!!
 She was the sweetest baby! I loved how she started sleeping through the night at 7 weeks. I did nothing to make this happen it was just what she needed, and I guess what I needed too!
 The binky lasted until she was 6 months and then she found her thumb, still need to stop that habit!!! Like her mom (I was at least 6 before I stopped maybe older, ekk!!!)

 Love that CHEESY grin gosh and her hair. I love that she has lots of hair. Me at this age not so much! I was almost bald until I was three!
She has a temper!
 She has found her Prince Charming!

 She loves having to sit still in a stroller, oh who am I kidding. She will try to squirm out of anything!!!
 She knows style!
 Love her excitement!
 She is already talking about the holidays and asks where is Santa. It's fun when they start to remember from previous years!
 She will not keep a thing in her hair. Bows are out of the question still.
 She enjoys make-up almost a little too much because she has helped herself lately on applying it alone.
 She does not like to have water in her face. Bath time and well getting knocked over by waves in the ocean are not on her top 10 list.
 She is stubborn and knows when she is not allowed to do something like climb those tiny little steps on the right. But gosh they were perfect Ashlyn size. Darn Disney and their distraction in long ride lines!
 She could care less if she gets her clothes dirty or wet, no prim and proper little girl here.
 She loves her dolphin aka Shamau 
 Falling and face planting in sand is not on her top 10 list either!

 That girl can work an iPad, or a phone. Well she would probably be able to connect on a computer too. Pretty scary how fast she has picked it up. Oh and I guess it's not iPad it's myPad!
She likes to eat, everything for the most part!
 She loves dress up whether it be superheroes or princesses she all about it!

And she LOVES her teacher Mrs. Spier. She even calls a woman in our ward Mrs. Spier. It is very cute  how she will talk about her friend Mrs. Spier!

Ashlyn you are growing so fast, I don't want to miss one part. But please help by slowing down a little. The next thing I know it will be August 29th 2013 and you will be 4!!!!!!!!

I told Preston it was Ashlyns bday (on her bday) and said she was 3 now. He said "Now Ashlyn get baptized and I go watch".
She's hilarious, I love that girl!
Now take her to the dragon ride!
