She was born 08-01-08 and I was born

Neat, huh?!

She turns 3 today, and this Momma turns 3-0. {Oh boy!}

  My dearest Avery, no one would ever guess you weighed a whopping 10 pounds 3 1/2 oz at birth, (Or that your daddy made the nurses weigh you on 2 different scales because he thought they had to be wrong!), or that you would be our biggest baby ever.

  And boy, do you have spunk! You always have had that onrey twinkle in your eye. I like to tease you that it’s from your Daddy.

You look just like his side of the family you know, right down to the baby blue almond shape eyes.

122-2

Your happy grin brightens any room.

You look like an angel when you sleep.

Sometimes when you’re awake too.

“Look, Momma. I push him. He cry.”

008

Your cry can pierce any ear drum, as it has from the get-go.

Your love of reading started at an early age.

You aspire to be a wife, already praying for your future husband at times. 020021

And you want to be a mommy, too…….

You’re going to be great!031

 

You’re always eager to be our big helper!

023012056059

You melt my heart whenever you reach up and slip your teeny hand in mine. “Can I hold you hand, Momma?”  064-3

  Oh precious girl, how the years have passed us by.  057-2

  How I wish I could stop time and just really hold you and give you the one on one moments you deserve.

014-2

It’s a good thing a Mother’s love doesn’t divide, it multiplies, because you joined our family when Tylan was 17 months old.n762190229_4666440_1214n762190229_4666441_1530

And, 2 weeks after you turned 2, your baby brother, Paxton came along.

“I’m da baby too, Momma……”

I may not always get to hold you in my arms as much as you ask me to, and that makes me cry.

037

  I may not always stop and listen to your whole story because of the demands of the other children.

008

I may not get to rock you as long as you’d like me to each night before bed.

Sometimes, I can’t play Hide and Seek right when you want to.

010

But you know what?

157

I love you so much……

My little Peanut, my blessing from the Lord.

I promise to stop and hold you just a moment longer each night.

158

I promise to give you the time and attention you need.

012-2

I promise to never make you feel like I am too busy with the baby to give you what you seek.043
