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!!

Love that sweet girl! Can't believe 3 years ago today there were 25 people in your hospital room loving on sweet Sara!

I still remember little Sara crawling around the Ebenezer nursery in her cute little dresses and her chunky baby thighs! I can't believe she is so grown up (and has some sweet Yo Gabba Gabba moves to boot!). We love you, Sara!

Happy Birthday Sara! One thing I love most about that sweet girl is the way she makes everyone feel so special when she greets them by name with such love and enthusiasm!
