Little Miss Big Personality

 Sometime in the midst of our crazy Alaskan adventure all the baby escaped from my little baby cutie pie and now all that is left is this adorable, spunky little girl.  Zion turned 3 last month and I feel a combination of pure joy and sheer terror as a result.  How did we get here so soon??  How can I make time slow down when she moves a bazillion miles an hour!?  I remember thinking that I couldn't wait until she could converse with us and do all sorts of activities - ones that didn't require a stroller or her being strapped to my chest or back, and now I crave the moments she will actually let me scoop her up in my arms and hold her tightly.
Even with each day's challenges, I am learning that parenting is teaching me to appreciate life's daily treasures in profound new ways.  Even in the midst of the power-struggles and testing moments of this "Threenager" stage,  nothing can distract me from savoring the special moments in between.
