birthday celebration

ready for some pictures? 
here is a picture story of how we celebrated sara's birthday. 
we rode the dart train to the zoo. 
we had a simple picnic (as we bathed in our sweat) and enjoyed our family and friends. 
my sweet mom made the long trek to dallas to spend time with sara this weekend.

happy birthday my sweet three year old! i'm so proud of you.

happy birthday sara girl.

sweet sara,
i can't believe three years have passed since you made me a mommy. it has been such a joy to watch you grow up. i've been thinking about you lately and how much you have accomplished this past year. i am so proud of you. you endured some of the biggest changes in your short little life and you have faced them well.

you became a big sister (to a boy who just keeps growing and requiring more of your attention, love and patience), 

you learned to sleep in a big girl bed (and now its hard to think of you in a crib), 

you learned how to control your body fluids and use a potty (it took some time and tears but you did a GREAT job, sweet girl), 

you watched your first world cup and cheered for the USA so well (although you often jumbled the letters and cheered for SUA or AUS), 

you had your first experience with dance class (you can't hit a ball to save your life but you sure can dance!),

and you continue being such a blessing to your mommy and daddy. 
we are so proud of you and are so excited to walk out many many more years beside you. 
i love you!
your mommy

happy 3rd birthday sweet girl of mine!!
