Happy 3rd Birthday Ana!

Ana had a great birthday today!! We celebrated Ana turning three with family and friends!! The weather was so beautiful that Ana got to spend most of the day outside!!
It's so hard to believe that little Ana is three years old! We love you Ana so much! We have loved watching you grow and learn so much this past year. The way you love all of us and give HUGE hugs makes us all feel so special!!

We also love your free spirit!! The way you just go wherever the wind takes you is one of my favorite things about you!! Wearing rain boots on a sunny day, eating dessert first, licking the dirt just to see how it tastes, throwing your head back while you swing, and loving with your whole heart are some of my favorite things about you!!

Happy Birthday Ana!! We love you so much!!

Last day as a 2 year old!

Today is Ana's last day being 2 years old!! I can't believe my little baby will be 3 tomorrow!! Wow, time has gone by very quickly.

Ana loves to have her picture taken so when she saw me take out the camera she had a few "last day as a 2 year old" poses for me!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

I'm so excited to celebrate my first Mother's Day as a Mom of three!! Being a Mom is something God placed on my heart since I was a little girl. Getting to live it out everyday is the absolute best!! I love how each of my children brings a new and different reason of why I love being a Mom!!

Carter - the way he is so confident and his compassionate heart inspires me to be more like him!

Durant - his silliness and laugh is contagious and reminds me to not take life so seriously!

Ana - her carefree spirit and they way she loves with her whole heart is something I strive for everyday

Of course, I can't celebrate this day with out thinking of Durant and Ana's birth Mom's. Two remarkably brave women who put themselves aside for the love of their children. We love you Rebekah and Emma!

Happy Mother's Day!!!
