Happy Birthday Baby Girl

I should have written this post 11 days ago.

I should be scheduling myself better so that I can get posts up at least 5 days a week.

I should have had a real breakfast this morning instead of a two-bite blueberry scone from Whole Foods.

There are many things I should have done, but I can't look back on these things and be upset, I just need to push forward.

So Caroline I am sorry this post is 11 days late, but I want to celebrate your birthday if it is all the same to you.

3 years ago I said a little prayer when I found out I was pregnant.  I made a little deal with God that if he would give me a girl would withstand morning sickness or whatever he wanted to throw my way.

Man oh man was I sick for about 24 weeks, but at 6:54 pm on May 12th we were blessed with our third child and first girl Caroline.

Everyday of illness was ABSOLUTELY worth it.

You are the apple of my eye.

You have grown quite a bit since that first day:

A few minutes old

2 months old

6 months old

1st birthday

2nd birthday

3rd birthday (the girl does love a cupcake)

You have the most wonderful demeanor and joy for life.

It is an honor to be given the job as your Mom.  I look forward to watching you grow.
