Happy Birthday Emily!

Our little Emily Grace turns three today!

Her first year:

Her second year:

Her third year:

Everyone warns you that time flies and it sure does! I can hardly believe that in a few months (six to be exact) she will be in preschool!!! What a precious child we have. I am learning to cherish every single moment with her. One day she's not going to like it so much when I kiss her neck, sing silly song, make silly faces, chase her rear end during her infamous naked runs, call her sweet nick-names, etc. etc. I am so blessed by having her in my life.
"Now I realize what life is all about.
It's hanging on when your heart has had enough,
it's giving more when you feel like giving up.
I've seen the light, it's in my daughter's eyes."
~ Martina McBride
