A Very Special Day

This week we celebrated Avery's 9th Birthday. How did this happen so quickly? How is it possible that i have a 9 year old daughter?


The weather was beautiful, just as she had prayed for. Though i think the presents were far more exciting.


She is fast turning into a young lady... with her own ideas, opinions and sense of style. I can see that the upcoming years are not going to be without their challenges. :o)


There were many gifts she wanted, mostly American Girl...but the one other thing she asked me for was the chance to hold the baby, while standing. Up to this point Delilah has just been too unsteady. I admit it makes me nervous, but i know i can not put it off forever. So we captured that moment so she would remember it until i let her the next time...whenever that is going to be.

Happy Birthday Avery! 9 seems to be a big year, but a really good one too.

I was also nervous about my girls holding Cooper when they were standing, until he was able to hold on and not flop backwards. Now they carry him all over the place!

Happy Birthday to Avery! Oh mom, it goes by so fast!

I can remember the way my heart dropped to the floor when out 4 & 1/2 yo decided to get his preemie baby brother out of the crib and walk him downstairs to me!

Gulp!
