You are my Sunshine

Today I am thankful...

for this little guy.

Who is growing up way too fast.

I wrote him a little belated b-day letter
and thought I would share... (I try to hand-write my kids letters each year)

I did it for the twins and realized I forgot little Reese! So I am making up for it now =)

Dear Reesie,

We have spent 2 wonderful years with you so far and you have changed so much!

You were born on March 5th, and you weighed 8 lbs. 12 oz.

Your personality started out so quiet. You were the best baby in the whole world. You slept soundly, you hardly ever cried, and you just loved to smile and snuggle.

Your daddy said we hit the jackpot with you. =)

Your brothers didn’t really know what to do with you at first.

But now you play and laugh
(and fight) like crazy.

You boys are so much fun to watch!

(back in his slimmer days)

I had no idea in the beginning that you would be Mr. Personality. Your facial expressions are so animated! I can't help but laugh every time you talk.

You think you are big stuff (well in some ways you are ya little chunker). You are so mischievous, but it is hard to get mad when you constantly have the biggest smile on your face.

You say your words so well and I just love to hear you putting new sentences together.

You love your babies (stuffed animals), books, and Dora and you still love to cuddle.

You fit perfectly in my lap and I know I will miss the days when you don’t fit there anymore.

Please know Reese’s pieces, you are loved!

I thank God for you every day, and I can’t wait to see what else He has in store for you!

Love Always and Forever,


P.S. I am also thankful for my sweet little niece Nora, who turns 2 today!

Happy Birthday Nora!

I loved being preggers with your mommy, and it is so fun to watch you and Reese grow up together!

Since we didn't get to see you today, Reese wants to go ahead and wish you...

(please forgive my singing)

What are you thankful for today?
