O how you grow….

Braidi three days..Tristin two years



it feels like yesterday I looked at these lil┬áhands in wonder.Now I stand here in awe at the men you are becoming.How is this possible?Where has the time went.I still get up through the night and feel your chest to make sure you are still breathing,every little bump over the monitor sends this mommy running.I cant believe you are five and seven.I look at you both and see so much of your dad and I in you that it astounds me.If I had one wish for the both of you it would be that you stay as innocent as you are for as long as possible.Its a tough world out there boys and I dont want you to know how bad it is for as long as possible.So lets slow down ok…growing up isnt as fun as it sounds….love always

Not an easy number…


first baseball game...


Dear Braidi,

wow five today lil man..no longer a baby or preschooler.It’s a hard number for any mommy.You grow so much everyday and everyday it is a new adventure with you in our lives.The lil glint that spells trouble is still in your eyes and we wouldnt change a thing.Your our silly child,quick to smile and share your dimples,and quick to conspire with your brother over ways to make everyone laugh.You are still such a cuddely lil boy and still want to be on your mommas lap.You amaze me everyday with your games of pretend and the things you build with your blocks.We love you lil man try to slow down ok?As mommy types this the tears roll down my face over how fast you are growing and how blessed we are to have you.Happy Birthday Braidi xoxo…

love mommy
