Sunday Snapshot {Thankful for three}

BLOG reading down for threee

Our little princess is growing up! Hard to believe it but today Lily turns three!

BLOG lily three fingers

She has been talking about this special day for the past several weeks and needless to say she is super excited!

BLOG squinty three smile

Last year we had a big celebration with some of my close friends and family since it was her first birthday to be with us. It was a magical day filled with much love and joy that I will always remember (click here to revisit that golden day).

This year we are keeping it simple.  Lily has already celebrated with my family and Michael's family so  it will be just the four of us celebrating together eating a "Fancy Nancy" birthday cake.

My Nana often says that God hand picked her just for our family and I am so thankful that He did! She makes us laugh, I love hearing her sweet prayers, she is eager to learn and full of joy!

Today I think about Lily's birthmother and pray that she feels peace in her heart knowing Lily is loved and treasured beyond measure.  Her sacrifice of love has made our hearts full.

Lily is missing piece that makes our family complete.

Spencer was three when I first met him and now he will be a teenager in just a few weeks. Time has a way of slipping by...my prayer is that I will be an intentional mom that treasures the stages and seasons I am given so that when I look back I have no regrets.

Even as I write this post Lily is saying "mama come show me how to jump way up high"..."mama I want to play play dough"... 

BLOG double three

So I'm off to make some blue ice cream cones with my girl and soak up the gift of simple moments like these.

  The three's are here and I'm hoping that they will be as fun and smooth as the "two's" have been!

Happy Birthday sweet girl! We love you more each day!
