Birthday Girl #2

On to birthday girl #2. Sophie will be turning 3 on Saturday. The kids have requested camping to try out our new fancy tent so we will be camping on her birthday. My little Soaps is so much fun. She is the climber of the family and loves to get right in with her big brother and sister with whatever they are doing. She still loves to be my little girl and likes to snuggle and endures my many kisses and hugs. Her favorite things are dogs and riding in the bike trailer. She loves to get out and do things. I am so glad she is my baby and she is still small enough to curl up in my arms. I love my baby and hope she has a happy day!

Birthday Girl

May 20th is Leena's B-Day and it makes me reflect on my little girl. I can't believe she will be 5 and starting school in the fall. It is hard to feel that I have gotten the most out of each stage of her short growth. I don't know that anyone can. She is the sunshine in our day (although storm clouds occasionally arise). She is so full of life and a ball of fun. She loves to learn and is very competitive. Anything her big brother does, she knows she can do too. She isn't afraid of anything, except for the moment, shirts that come dangerously close to the bottom of her shorts. She is a great big sister and a lovable little sister. She keeps me company and I love her many fantastic stories. Her latest funny is when we came back from Central Europe Bradyn was so interested in our stories, he said he wanted to go to Poland for his mission. Leena soon piped up and said she wanted to go to Disneyland for her mission. She's never even been there yet, but she knows there are castles and princesses and that's all she needs. I am so glad she is my girl and I have the privilege to be her mom. I love you Leen. Happy Birthday!
