Happy Birthday to my little Addy


Adaline Marie I waited a long time for you to come into my life and you are truly everything I hoped for and more. You are kind hearted and smart. You are passionate and beautiful. You are funny and full of joy. I can't imagine my life without you. I can't believe you are already three. Where has the time gone?? We have had three wonderful years together. They haven't always been the easiest of times but even the most challenging moments I wouldn't take away. You have taught me to be a stronger and more patient person and for that I thank you. I love being your mother, it is the greatest birthday gift I could ask for.

And yes after 3 years I am finally okay sharing my birthday with you.

Thanks for coming into our lives and showing us a kind of love we never knew before.

Happy 3rd birthday big girl!!

A Happy new year to you and yours

There is something about New Years that I have always loved...I love that feeling of starting over, that hopefulness that comes along with the clock striking midnight. Now this year Shane and I didn't do a whole lot....I guess when you are just days away from having a baby the word party is not much in your vocabulary. We did have a great new year's none the less. It mostly involved drinking yummy hot chocolate with whip (or foop cream as Addy calls it) and sitting on the couch just enjoying each others company. And Shane and I may or may not have had our New Year's kiss while we were already half asleep in bed :)

I hope your New Year's eve was fun and safe! And I wish everyone the happiest and joyful New Year for 2012!

Tomorrow I am having a c-section and we are having this baby! So I guess the next time you hear from me will be for baby B's debut! Can't wait!!

We had a merry one

We had a great Christmas! We got spoiled, had fun, and had a lot of family time together. It may have been my favorite Christmas yet. The kids were super stoked on all their is so much fun seeing the joy in their faces. Here are some pictures from Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
