Believe Them When They Say...

Cherish every moment... It goes by WAY TOO QUICK...

My baby girl turned 3 yesterday...
The thing is, she's not a baby anymore,
she is a little girl!

Potato sack races...

Painting carousel horse sun catchers...

Selling popcorn and pretzels . . .

Carousel, "merry-go-round" cake

Opening gifts...

Today I'm remembering...

The day you were born;
how your daddy wrapped his big arms around you,
an how it was love at first sight!


How I couldn't believe you were mine!
That we had finally "met" and what a gift you were!


the way you smelled...
Someone really needs to "bottle" baby scent!

celebrating your 1st Birthday

Your first cake

Remembering when we celebrated your 2nd birthday,
and how Daddy asked you to marry him

Snuggling once again;
your flushed, worn out party-girl face against my
flushed, worn out mommy-party-girl face

Your Princess Cake

And here we are, you are 3,
and such a special, tender hearted, big girl!

And it warms my heart to know,
that you will be a great Mommy some day.
I love watching you "mother" your dollies!

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!
