Baseball Boy

 G's number one baseball fan of all time.

This kid is eat, sleep, breathe baseball. He has been obsessed with it since before he could even walk. Love the team player that he is. Even if he gets a little overly confident of his skills at times, he is quick to encourage, coach, and cheer on his team mates. He can hardly stand the excitement of a new season. He was chosen to play on an All Star team this year and had a blast. Such a great little athlete!

Mother's Day 2013

 This year as usual, I am flooded with an overwhelming amount of gratitude for motherhood. I am so grateful for my own wonderful, beautiful mother who has taught me almost everything. From the small childhood things to life long lessons, she has lead me by example. She has taught me so much about myself. The longer I am a mother, the gratitude I have for my own mother deepens. So much love, patience, sacrifice, strength, faith and courage. I am of course, beyond lucky to be able to celebrate a day like today, surrounded by these adorable lovies. They are my greatest treasure in life.
 Sweetest messages from G listing reasons he loves me.
 G has taught me silent strength. Though times may be difficult, we can always get through it together. This little man of mine has been a rock in my life. He is so strong, and still so engaging and tender hearted. Quick to wipe a tear and cheer me up. I might never let him grow up and move out.
 P from day one has taught me to be yourself and live life to the fullest. March to your own beat and get off the well beaten path. Life is full of dancing in the rain, singing to the top of your lungs even if you don't know the words, giggles, piggy back rides, sweet secrets before bedtime and poodles. She is always there to point out the beauty in everything, such a gift!
O's smile doesn't have an "off" switch. There isn't anywhere she goes that that gorgeous smile doesn't follow. She has taught me to simply, BE HAPPY.  To hope, dream and believe. Miracles happen and trust the Lord. She has united our family in so many ways. There isn't one of us who wouldn't do anything for our O Bear.

My Preschooler

 P. You are a little doll. Love the swimsuit with the cupcake socks. Such a fun age!! This past month you have been so busy at preschool. You LOVE the butterfly unit & made sure I came to watch you release your butterfly at school. We also went on a field trip to Safeway & the local fire station. Your class has been talking about different occupations. The latest thing you want to do when you grow up is a police officer, construction worker, or a "worker girl". Oh boy, thankfully you have years to pin that one down.
