Last week, as we celebrated Charlie's first birthday, I thought about what a different a year makes in the lives of small children.
A few weeks ago, Melody celebrated her friend, Kate's, third birthday.
Here she is at Kate's party, waiting patiently for her chocolate iced cupcake, Kate's favorite. Notice her cute ponytail poking out of her princess crown.
She wastes no time diving right in, starting at the top where the good stuff is.
Can I have another one?
What a change from Kate's party last year!
She has so much more hair now, don't you think?
(Oh yeah, and she's a little bit neater too!)
