Favorite Esther Moments: Age 3


  • Esther went on an almost 3 mile bike ride with Chris, attracting many stares and comments from passers by.  At one point Chris called up to ask, "Esther are you going fast?"  She responded with classic, Esther-like enthusiasm: "Yes I am! Yep! Yep! Yep!" I love that girl. 
  • "Let's go on the heeter totty" (Pretty sure she means teeter totter but I won't be the one to tell her that.)
  • For some time now, Esther has been taking clothes from her dresser drawer and moving them to a different drawer in the other dresser.  It wasn't all her clothes, just her skirts, leggings, and a few shirts. I find this frustrating since it's usually right after I've folded and put her clothes away neatly. One day as I was watching her move the clothes to the other dresser she explained her methods, "This drawer (where she was moving the clothes) is for my beautiful clothes. Those (pointing disdainfully to the first drawer) are my clothes that are not beautiful." 
  • Her candid assessment of the smily-face the Costco clerk drew on the back of our receipt: "I don't like it. I'd rather have a snake." 
  • While helping me wash the dishes Esther was measuring her height against mine.  As she finished, she declared (with such assurance that I have do doubt it was premeditated): "When I am big, I will drive the car and you will sit in my seat." 


  1. What a funny little girl! I love her so much. "I'd rather have a snake." So funny!

  2. Oh my I love her so much! I can not wait to e there and interact with her she makes me happy!

  3. So hilarous! What a great way to remember her! She will love reading this someday!
