samantha-turns-3On September 25th my first born turned 3 years old! Like all mothers, I just sat there that morning and was blown away at how quickly it’s going. We have a little party planned for her, but on the actual day of her birthday we took her to Facebook. They have a neat ice cream/bakery shop. She got a cupcake AND an ice cream cone. (she was supposed to only get the cupcake, but snatched daddy’s ice cream cone too lol). Both the kids LOVE visiting Brad at work. The campus is large enough for them to run around where ever they want, the food is good, and they get to see daddy. Samantha is so smitten with her father. Every year she grows closer to him and it’s such a site to see. Every year has been such an enormous gift of love with this little girl. She’s my little honey. Everything about these early years is so beautiful… even the not so beautiful parts. she humbles and convicts me every day in a way I believe God had intended. She makes me want to be a better person and mom. She forgives me when I fall short and is such a sweet little love to all.

Samantha,

Right now you LOVE dragons, balloons, playdoh, any kind of outing, you play a lot with Sean, You are able to say the Lords Prayer, you can’t really sit still…. ever… even in your sleep, you like to help mommy peel wallpaper off the walls, and band aides are you most favorite thing in the world too. You love fruits, not really a cheese lover, you don’t like pizza and you prefer the green gummy bears over the reds. You are potty trained now too! That’s a big accomplishment! You have a very sweet heart. You’re a good girl Samantha and you make me beam with joy and pride =)
