Three Years Ago

Three Years Ago

3 years ago, on this very day, we had the most perfect addition to our little family. He fit right in – his personality complimenting those of his siblings in a most unbelievable way. My fifth child. He is strong, caring, and loves to make people laugh. He adores his sisters – and totally looks up to his brothers. At times, he’s a whirlwind of destruction – jumping off of tables and knocking down anything in his path. Other times, he’s the sweetest and most affectionate child I’ve known – hugging and kissing each and every one of us over and over. He loves superheroes – and most days, prefers that I call him “Peter Parker”. At this tender age, he also has a deep affection for his mama. Just the other day, he said to me, “Mama, you’re the best girl in the world!”  Words can never express how grateful I am to have him in our lives. He completes our family, and I often find myself wondering how we ever could’ve thought we were whole before him. AJ, there is nothing that I love more then watching you learn and grow every day. You are a blessing to our family, and I can’t imagine us without you. I am beyond honored to be your mama. Happy Birthday, my sweet boy.












1. Ava – she’s so excited that it’s finally warm enough to wear shorts. (with leggings underneath, of course)

2. Justin – such an avid reader.

3. AJ – made a new friend this week at our local playdate. she was pretty smitten with him and was following him around the entire time!

4. Emi – already stealing mama’s stuff. (that’s my hat)
