In three years she's grown from the easiest, most serious baby, who wouldn't smile for anyone but her parents (much less let them hold her) into an incredibly affectionate, mischievous preschooler with the best imagination, who will walk up to strangers wherever we go to tell them that her name is Missy.. or Eloise.
I did Mollie's first "birthday interview" on her third birthday, and am carrying on the tradition with Dede. It's broken into two parts since she took an impromptu (potty) break in the middle of her interview :)
I've included a translation at the end. in case you have trouble understanding her, and I included a few questions that I thought to ask her after we were done making the video.. enjoy!

There's Lydia, and there's Clara for Mollie, and there's Emma for you. Maybe Caitlin. And I have friends that you can hold. You can hold Lydia. Well, can I bring Julie (her teddybear) to play with my Julie with my friend Lydia? Lydia likes my Julie.
