Happy Birthday Laney Bug!

My sweet little baby girl is 3 today! I cannot believe it...I am in such shock. Where did 3 years go? And who is this little toddler? I can't even begin to tell you how blessed I am that God gave her to me to raise here on this Earth.

We have had good times and bad times, good stages and bad stages BUT it has been a blast spending the last 3 years with her. I love love love her passion, honesty, wildness, stubbornness, blond curls, little beady hazel eyes, her love for all things girly (shoes, dresses, dolls) but also for her love of water, dirt and trucks. She challenges me to be a better mother everyday without even realizing it.

So to my social butterfly who I adore so much...the child who caused me to have 23 hours of labor and 4 1/2 hours of pushing... I love you soooo much and I am so proud to be your mommy! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
