Happy Birthday, My Joy.

Your 1st Day.


Never in my life had I laid eyes on anyone or anything so perfect, so precious, so absolutely incredible. I remember laying in the hospital bed late at night and holding you in my arms and gazing at your beautiful face. Husby was asleep on the little pink couch, and I sat in silence, sobbing as I stared at you. You opened your perfect little ocean blue eyes and stared right back into mine. I can not explain to you the feeling that flooded my soul. You changed my life right then and there ... you took center stage in my heart and soul.

Your 365th Day.


My littlest angel love. This day was filled with joy, anticipation, emotion and immense love - much like your first day! You, my tiny little Weebie, turned one. You remained the bundle of smiles that you were as a brand new born, and the zest you have for life filled every room you wobbled in to. I remember watching you smash your face into your little birthday cake and being transported to the day you were born. Tears filled my eyes, but laughter escaped my lips. You proved to be the most pleasant little boy I had ever met, and you turned one with such sweetness and confidence. My lamb.

Your 730th Day.


If I could have predicted the person you would be today from the way you were the first days of your life, I would have nailed it. You have not changed a single bit, my lamb! You even make the exact same faces that you did when you were days old. You have grown and flourished so much this year and though I look back on these pictures with a lump in my throat, I would not trade THESE days for anything in the world. You are the most precious little soul - I can not even explain it. Those who know you understand that you are different ... you are a blessing, and you are going to do great things. You are uniquely compassionate, loving, and absolutely hilarious. You have understood humor from a very young age, and you laugh and make us laugh every single day.

I can't explain what you have done to your Daddy and I, little Levi, but you have flipped our worlds upside down and made our hearts do things we didn't know they were capable of.

We love you, our Weebie boy ... and we beam with pride for who you are.

Happiest of Birthdays. You're TWO!
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.
