my peanut is 3.

Three years ago from right now I was sitting in a labor and delivery room getting prepped for a c-section to welcome Pierce into the world. I knew at that moment that I loved this little guy, but I had no idea how this love would take over every part of my life and how it would grow and grow each day. are so many things. You are wild, sweet, silly, loud, all boy, courageous, tender hearted most of the time, your sister's favorite person, not shy, curious, loving, fun to be around, a leader, and most of all, you are MY sunshine. I love you to the moon and back sweet little one. Oh how I wish I could pause time so I could savor these moments a bit longer. I am thankful God has given me the opportunity to be your mommy.

Happy 3rd Birthday, Peanut.

pierce's pajama pirate party.

Shiver Me Timbers....
our Peanut is (almost) 3.

Today we celebrated Pierce's 3rd birthday with some of his sweet friend. We celebrate pirate style. In our jammies.

After decorating treasure bags, we went hunting for treasure. And even found a pirate ship. A breakfast fit for pirates was served after our treasure hunt.

What a fun fun party for our little pirate.

what we've been up to.

sometimes (a lot lately) i wish time would just slow down.
or that there were a few more hours in the day.

i feel like we are going a million miles to the minute - all with good stuff - but just lots of stuff.
we have had a our fair share of stressful days lately ... days when the tears just flow ... but at the end of each day, i can't help but be thankful for this busy season of life that God has us in right now. i guess i am really just thankful for His presence, His love, His peace, His joy, and His comfort in the midst of all this craziness.

so, what have we been up to lately??

i finally decided to join pinterest - holy moly. love it!
and we have even tried 3 recipes that i have "pinned."
it is still pretty warm here - notice the swimsuit on pierce.
p and s are playing good together - even if one is inside and one is outside. :)
i got to celebrate baby kekic this weekend!!
little miss stella is everywhere!!
my 3 loves.
p has decided that popsicles are best enjoyed in the shower.
and we are in the process of planning birthday party #3 for pierce.
how is my little boy about to turn 3?!?!?
