These girls are obsessed with their mother. I was just telling my Dad the other night how they remind me so much of my sister and I when we were little – always hanging on our Dad.

My forever wish is that they never get tired of hanging all over me, that we always share special dates like this together, and that they always know I cherish them.

It warms my heart and makes me unbelievably grateful for their loving hearts toward me.

A whole living room and they sit on top of me, they shower with me, they constantly bring me books/balls/cards/games to play, they wait impatiently for me to return from the gym or grocery store, they won’t go to bed without “just one more hug” :: I could go on and on.

I love them for loving me, I savor every hug and little giggle we share. This is what mother-hood is – when you love little humans you created with all of your being. When nothing they do can ever change the way I love or care for them.

On Sundays occasionally, me and the girlies like to go to O’Henry Hotel for afternoon tea time – it’s perfect. Dainty little tea dishes, delicious teas, perfect treats and sweets: all while we giggle chatting about all things girly and fun.

I was made to be a mother and our special times together like this remind me why.


Reese turns 4!

Time flies when you have babies and they have birthdays!

Our little Reese turned 4 on Tuesday! We celebrated with cupcakes at her preschool, dinner at Mcdonalds (her choice), ice cream, Build a Bear, and of course: presents.

We will celebrate her again this Saturday with a pool party and family.

A re-cap of our girl:

  • Obsessed with Frozen everything, she dreams of meeting Anna and Elsa.
  • Still sucking her thumb – a habit we are desperate to break!
  • Loves snacks – particularly NutriGrain bars and gummies.
  • Playgrounds of any kind.
  • Pockets on her shorts – for stuffing coins, rocks, and lip glosses.
  • Hair down, no big bows and frills for this cutie – she prefers her hair down always – and with those straight locks, I’m cool with it.
  • dresses and fancy princess costumes
  • Animals – Reese loves all kinds of animals, especially Dixie and Sammy
  • Terrified of bugs: deathly terrified of flies.

Our little May baby is spunky and sassy to say the least. She believes everything is a game and truly makes us laugh often. She is stubborn about getting up, dressed, showering – but full of life and loves to chat.

Happy Birthday to our sweet Reesie-cup!
