Happy Birthday, Rachel!

I can’t believe you’re turning 5 years old today. It’s gone by too fast.

Basking in the sun

I was laying in bed last night thinking, “We only have 3 more cycles of this (5 years at a time)” and you’ll be all grown up.”

 Hello?

Five years used to be such a long period of time. Now it’s just a blink of the eye…

You said to Mommy last night, “I don’t want to grow up!”

Way up high!

I’m right there with you, baby girl…right there with you.

But I also can’t wait to see the young woman you’ll become.

Like I said when you were born…I never knew my heart could be full of so much love.

Happy birthday, my sweet girl.

Happy Birthday Grandma Betty and Grandpa Al


I’m very proud of Dad…he made this video by himself, with only a couple of calls to his technologist son!

Happy Birthday, Emily!

I can’t believe it’s been a year already.??

Welcome to the world, Emily Marie!

It seems like just yesterday that I was holding you in my arms for the very first time, and here you are, a crawling, laughing, happy little girl that’s turning a year old today.
