Four years ago today, my life was forever changed. After years and years of struggling with infertility and miscarriages, I vowed to never put myself through any of it again. I had two precious miracles, and that was enough. But God knew better. He knew exactly what we needed to complete our family. He knew I needed a major lesson in trusting Him, a lesson in overcoming fear, with blessings beyond measure to follow. He gave me my Boo.Photobucket
Our little sunshine who knows exactly what she wants....who dictates what her dream birthday cake should look like. "Pink with star sprinkles, with a big "E", made by mommy".
Our little ray of sunshine who brightens up our every day! This was at preschool as her friends were singing Happy Birthday to her yesterday.
Our little sweetheart with a BIG sweet tooth!
We celebrated her big day yesterday - and no birthday is complete to our little sunshine without a game of Duck-Duck-Goose. I love that she appreciates the "little things" and is happy with just having her family and friends surrounding her - she really doesn't ask for very much.
Our little pink princess who shows us every day to slow down and enjoy the little things in life because they pass by all too quickly.
Our little creative genius who can usually be found at her art desk creating things for those she loves.
I love this picture - when Mollie walked around the corner with the one thing she wanted the most this year. A white horse with a pink saddle for her dolls.
A special hug for Maddie who gave her the doll to ride on the horse.
How on earth do we already have FOUR candles??
We love you to the moon and back a million times!
Happy Birthday Sweet Four-Year-Old Boo! You Are Our Sunshine!!!

Happy Birthday Boo! Can I just say I cried while looking at these pictures! I can't believe it's been 4 years! Looks like she had a great time and great job on the cake Mom!

Maddie said...

Awww, wow she is 4, i feel like an old person saying it was just yesterday that we were talking about the all of 6 or 7 words she could say! I LOVE the picture of her blowing out the candles, the lighting and specially her expression are perfect. <3 <3 <3

I can't stand that I'm not there to share her day with her and give her lots of hugs. I can't wait to see her in a couple weeks. Aunt Jennie will have something for her then. Give her extra hugs and kisses from Aunt Jennie today.

Can that grown up girl in the bouncer with Emily and her daddy really be Kirsten?? I had to look several times to realize it was her.

i struggle with infertility as well... jamie is an ivf miracle and our last attempt ended in loosing 2 of our 9 remaining babies. God is so good to give and to take away. I too am learning to trust in Him more and more and to give myself over to His timing.

Sweet, sweet girl. She's looking so grown up! Just like Breanna. I can't believe our babies are 4!
