Micah is 3

Oh Buster, you are 3. You are such a ride. You love and dislike fiercely. You love the color green, Paw Patrol, your new "jet pack water gun", sweets, getting into mischief, lining up your stuffed animals just so before bedtime followed by three blankets in correct order, Bugs Bunny, your friends (Brah and "Bucket" and Grace...). 

You are people-oriented. Every night when we thank God for something, you almost always thank Him for people. I love that about you. You list those people and almost always list yourself and a few others multiple times..."Mom, Dad, Eli, Me, Haddie, Me, Mom, Daddy, Eli, and Me, Amen". 

When you're excited about doing something you have a little chant that I'm pretty sure you made up. It goes, "Oh yeah oh yeah, we can do this!" in the cutest voice. 

Your whole body feels it when you feel you're treated unfairly. 

Your two Bible sayings right now is "We can call Jesus God because Jesus is God" and "You and me an Eli and Daddy and Haddie, God made us from DUST". 

You have very expressive eyes and eyebrows. 

In public you are much more reserved and get embarrassed easily. When you're embarrassed you put your tongue in your cheek and try to hide. Sometimes it's after you've done something funny or cute and as soon as people react, you regret it.

By some miracle, you know your letters. 

You are very observant- especially with books- noticing the picture details that sometimes mommy overlooks.

You're fiercely independent and love to be able to make all the decisions. Once mommy figured out that it's best to let you get your own bowl and spoon for breakfast, our mornings have gone much smoother. If you're in charge of something, you're also very generous. 

At bedtime (or really anytime) when I say "I love you" you respond with "I love you way more" with your eyebrows lifted and bright eyes. We love you way more, Micah. You are such a joy to have a part of our family. We are thankful God saw fit that He would give you to us. We love YOU and we're excited to see what God has made you for. I have a feeling it will be ministering to His people somehow.
