This is Lily…

Lily turned three years old this month.

One of the presents Lily got for her birthday was a whole bag of tootsie roll pops.

And the month before that, she got a baby sister.

I learned from hanging out with Lily that three is the perfect age to become a big sister…

But I also learned that three is not the perfect age to get a whole bag of tootsie roll pops.
