God Bless his sweet heart!

The fair was in town last week. Thank goodness its gone! I couldn't afford for it to stay around any longer.

Babygirl has been on the "pet" kick for a few months now. She wanted a puppy and a baby bunny. Well... at the fair her daddy gets the bright idea to try to win her a bunny.. are you kidding me?????????? No such luck, I breathed a sigh of relief and she had a broken little heart. She runs to Grandma who's restaurant runs a booth at the fair.. what does Grandma do? She buys a rabbit! But we can't take it home because its in the rabbit show.. will have to pick it up on Saturday.

So... that's that. In the meantime, babygirl goes to the fair again with her little friend on Thursday. What happens? She wins a rabbit... all by herself! (want to hear the crazy part? her friend does too!!!).

So there you are... what do we have.. not one but TWO rabbits. I'm trying to adjust and learn the creatures. I have no idea what to do with the guys...

Yes, don't worry. I won't be running a bunny farm anytime soon, they are males!

{happy birthday, baby sissy}

In the blink of an eye...

First Cry

{my ONE year old}

My sweet Avery,

I can hardly believe its been a year since your birth. I remember it like yesterday. It feels like yesterday. I vividly remember the night before your birth. I slept two hours at the most. You moved constantly that night. I guess you were excited, too. I tossed and turned and savored every last kick, punch, turn and rolls you made. I dreamed of how much our lives were going to change in a matter of hours, of your sweet face, your tiny cry, your fingers and toes, you in my arms, the first kisses. As your daddy and I drove to the hospital we talked about all of those same things. We were so eager to have you in our arms.

Then you arrived. You were perfect, healthy and in our arms. Our prayers were answered. We were a happy family of four.

From the moment I first saw you and every day since, you have brought us nothing but joy. Your gentle and sweet personality is a blessing to everyone that knows you. Even more so to me.. your mommy, daddy and sister. Your smile is bright and contagious.. your giggles are priceless... your eyes sparkle... your slobbery kisses are love. We simply can't imagine life without you.

I feel like I only blinked and you were one. It's funny how life does that.

I hope you always feel how very much you are loved.

I love you,

{its been a million years}

I don't even want to look at the date of my last post.

Life has been spinning us in a million different directions. Good directions. I promise to update soon. I think about updating a lot but then when I sit down to do it... somehow it never gets done. Just like a lot of things in my life. :)

I've promised before, but this time I'm going to *really* try.
