Happy Birthday, Drama

Today is Drama’s birthday, and she is an amazing three years old. As usual, I am not quite sure how that happened, because just last week, she was a scrawny 5 and half pound newborn!

One of the things I enjoy about laying down with Drama is that she is a rubber. Usually to go to sleep, she sucks her thumb and caresses her own ear. But if I lay down with her, she rubs my hand or arm instead. Her warm little hand feels so loving. It’s a simple pleasure, but one I enjoy.

She’s also full of cute sayings, like she says ya’ll, ya’ll. As in, “I want to play Scrabble with ya’ll. This is a recent development, but it marks her as undeniably southern, doesn’t it? For the record, she still has to have a lot of help to play Scrabble.

And also she says, “Winnie-of-the-Pooh” unless it’s something Pooh related that she wants, in which case, it is “Winnie-of-my-Pooh”. And one of my favorites, “Cover up my big butt”.

She’s convinced that she’s five now, and laughs every time we ask her how old she is. Thanks for keeping us giggling, little gal!
