 oh my little one. yes, i still consider you my little one. you are 4 today! 4 years ago today this happened and life has been the very best ever since! i love you so much my heart could burst. you definitely have a zest for life and spunky personality! you are very lovey and love to give hugs, hold hands, and snuggle. you are adventurous and incredibly imaginative. you are so funny and always have us laughing over the silliest things you tell us. our dance parties never get old, and you my dear know how to groove! i love that you get excited over the most simple things, and i love getting to see the world from your view. 

 my little bear, you are loved! we are so lucky to have you as ours! i love that throughout your days you need me, and you know what? i need you too! i'm so glad we have each other! i am the lucky one that gets to be with you everyday. literally every. single. day. day in and day out. i am so happy that it's ME that gets to be with YOU! What fun we have, what adventures we have, days of reading stories, painting, playing with planes, trucks and cars, digging in the dirt, killing bugs, going for walks, baking, eating yummy food, traveling to far off places, watching tv and movies, going to the farm and going to our favorite spots, play dates and the list goes on and on, we have great days, we have days we are laughing so hard we cry and our bellies hurt from laughing so hard, and sometimes we have sad days, some days we have struggles and hard days and maybe some tears, BUT if i were to go through any day with someone, it is you my sweetheart! it's you, it's you, it's you! i love you! 
WE love you!

{ Blessed } ::

On April 14th Tyson blessed Sydney. It was such a sweet special blessing, perfect for her. She looked like a little angel in all white. we were so lucky and both sets of grandparents came to celebrate. It was a sunny and warm beautiful day! we are so lucky to have this little beautiful bundle of love in our family.

you love nap time and well basically love to sleep! 
starting to give us little giggles that are over the moon adorable. you laugh the best for brody.
 if you had the option you would like to sit up all day, stand up all day or be held all day. but being held is probably #1, which i love! 
you've been up to D.C. quite a few times and even did an over nighter and did awesome! 
you went swimming for the first time (while in D.C.) and you loved it!! 
you still hate your car seat with a deep dark passion.
 we've given you little bits of apple sauce, sweet potatoes and butternut squash and you've loved it! 
 you're a champion eater!

 you LOVE to try and eat my hair LOVE. silly girl! 
you love your big brother so much and you are so good to let him smoother you with love and on occasion deal with his silly tricks, like trying to jump over you or kiss your eyeballs (i know, right?) 
you let us SMOOTHER you with loads of hugs and kisses and you just take it all in.
 you always wake up so happy, and you are always so happy to see me. makes my day! 
love you going for walks and being outside. you got very mad at me the other day because we came in the house from being outside. it was sad, but we had to come in for dinner.
