Sometimes we are real close friends

You are getting bigger right before my eyes. I can't believe you are a big sister to 2 now! You love with all your heart. There was a day when I wondered if there was a gentle bone in your body. You were such a strong little baby. Tough. Stubborn. Feisty. Independent. In some ways you are still all those. I never found that gentle bone, but I did find a gentle heart. The way God has created you, Holland, is so wonderful. I love discovering things about you. Things you love and the things you notice, words you like to say, and your love for lip gloss, I will never forget! You are the one that is quickest to say, "I love you," "You look pretty," "I like your shirt," or "Mom, they said a bad word." I believe God will use your love of people someday. You have a way of making people feel so good and, you desire to please others. I hope to instill in you as you grow up, you only have to please the Lord. There is nothing that would please your mom and dad more. So, keep on living that way Holland! Be tough in every way you want, but keep that sweet heart of yours just the way it is and soft towards Jesus.

Pure Joy!One year ago we were waiting for this little guy, not knowing what in the world we were going to get. I have been doing lots of reflecting the last few weeks as we were preparing for him just 365 days ago. I cannot wait to celebrate his 1st birthday in less than 2 weeks. Now, I cannot imagine life without Tred. What a blessing!

Tonight I went in and checked on my babies and really wanted to capture what I saw...sisters that love each other so much they love sleeping in the same bed, a sweet snoring baby boy, and a fiesty (almost) 2 year old that was MIA from her crib. Here's some pictures of what I found...
Our #3 is a wild woman! We knew she had figured out how to crawl out of her crib about 2 weeks ago. She will even show you if you ask her. Thankfully, she can't open the door to her room yet. So, she stays in her room all night and during naps until we come in to get her. For the past few weeks Matt and I couldn't figure out where she sleeps because she cannot get back in the crib. Tonight I decided I would risk waking her up to get a sneak peek of her sleeping arrangements...this is what I found. Has she really been sleeping in the chair? How uncomfortable. Crazy kid!
What a handfull she is! I cannot wait to see her in 10 years!!!
