couldn't find my water bottle...
became obsessed with finding it and bringing my phone charger with me...barely made it out the door..sang By the sea...200 times on the way..even put lipstick on to distract people away from my tooo short shirt...Dan dropped me off..and took kids home knowing it would be a long morning- planning on picking me up ...after..ultrasound..non stress test..doc visit..just standard stuff because I was " overdue".... nst went great...got 3 compliments on my shirt..
went to ultrasound ..was told my little bellybaby was around 7 1/2 lbs!

dear Ella Victory,
you are 1 week old.
tonight I swaddled you tight and nursed you till your beautiful eyes closed...then I snuggled you against my shoulder..your sweet cheek against mine...and my heart flooded.
what a gift you are..my gift of peace..God is so faithful...He gave me you!
my sweet, strong Ella Victory what a journey we've had together ..you & I..and its only the beginning! I love you.
dear Ava West,
you are 2 yrs & 2 months old.
tonight we read so many goodnight books together...after each book your little arm would sneak around neck and squeeze..like our own secret. my miracle baby..such a big girl..I loved reading with you tonight but I especially loved your squeezes and your sweet smell and your tight goodnight hug and kiss...& I love that when you walk with daddy to go upstairs to bed you always stop at door to send me one last kiss. my bluebird. my gift. i love you!
dear Jack Sullivan,
o my beautiful boy. you are 1 yr & 1 month old.
tonight we played peekaboo 100 times. we read books. and we laughed together..I can't get the sound of your joyful laugh out of my head or my heart. my gift of joy.
I sang you a lullaby tonight..then you sang me one. such sweet love. I didn't want to lay you down ..your growing so fast...my little bear cub so curious and so cuddly.
I. love you.
love doesn't begin to cover how I feel...my beautiful precious gifts from my heavenly father which heard my heart ...I love you. I love you. I love you.
