A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous...full of beauty and forever beautiful...loving and caring and truly amazing.
A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart.
I am so thankful to have such a wonderful and loving daughter. I can't believe she is already 11. We have been through a lot together, and I wouldn't change a minute of it! I never knew how much love I had in my heart until that first moment I held her. I was so overwhelmed with love and pure joy. Every day I love her more and more. She continues to amaze me with her beauty-inside and out. She is so smart, funny, caring, loving, independent, strong, and passionate. She is an awesome big sister. She loves Blake and Kate so much. She is always helping me, even when I don't ask. Haley has a HUGE family and I know they all feel just as blessed as I do to have her in their lives. Happy Birthday Haley! I love you so much!
Here are a few pictures of Haley over the years...

Kate is 7 months old today! What a blessing she has been to us! She continues to be such a sweet and laid back baby. Some new things she is doing are-drinking from a cup, saying dada, picking up stars and putting them in her mouth(she loves them!), laughing a lot, waving bye bye, likes to play on tummy, playing with toys more, watching baby Einstein, and almost sitting up by herself(she does pretty good, but still falls). I thought it would be fun to dress Kate up in the same outfit to compare pictures and see how she's grown! Left: 11 weeks Right: 7 months
Favorites for this month: playing with new book that sings, and banana & strawberry apple star puffs

Blake started preschool today! He went last year to the same place. He gets to have the same teacher again also. We love Mrs. Joyce! Haley had her also. He was so excited about school. All morning he was trying to get me to take him and telling me we were going to be late if we didn't leave. He's so funny! I can't believe he's turning 5 in January! He's such a big boy. I hope this school year is as wonderful as the last. And we don't even want to mention next year... :(
