Three

How did we get from here:


…to here:


…to here?


These three years have sped by so quickly. These three years have been an eternity. I miss the baby that she was. I long for the girl she will become.

I adore the amazing being that she is, and I am grateful for this day, for every day, with her.

Happy birthday, baby.

  27. O'Neal (The woman in charge around here) Says:

    In all the celebration I know it’s hard not to think of how much your baby has grown & how fast it's flown by! These are the times I like to hold on to for as long as I can & revel in the person they are right this second, because surely they will be grown before you know it! Isn't it wonderful to look at them and think, "I did that!" ?

    Happy birthday little one and congratulations to your Mama for having such a beautiful blessing! Both of you are celebrated!
