It seems that only weeks ago I was blogging Carson’s birth story. Can you believe this little squirt is 6 months old!? Someone told me recently that parenthood is when the days are slow and the years are quick. Truer words.
Will you indulge me on a wee jaunt down memory lane?
I knew you would 🙂
Y’all are sweethearts.
Ben and I after 20 hours of labor, and an equal amount of time without sleep. We look faaaaaaaaaabulous.
But it was all worth it to deliver this little girl into the world! Is there anything more precious than a fresh baby?
She didn’t chose the thug life, the thug life chose her. Just a few days old here!
Carson wins most expressive baby face.
Hey Carson, remember that one time you used to sleep? That’d be great.
It’s still hard to believe we’re a family of three. It’s hard to believe Ben and I have only been married just over a year! (See pictures of us before we developed bags under our eyes here.)

I am so glad you are my daughter. I love being your mom. Though this mommy business has been far harder than I ever expected, I’m grateful to walk this road with you and your daddy by my side. God has used your little life so profoundly to show me the places in my heart that still need to be made more like Jesus – my selfishness, my pride, my vanity. Thank you for loving me unconditionally, even though I fail often at being your mother. It isn’t all serious heart work, though. Being your mom is the single most delightful role I’ve ever played. You surprise me daily with your expressive faces and new tricks. Watching you grow is such a joy. Your dad and I love our passionate, spirited little girl. We don’t promise that we’ll be perfect but we do promise to show you how to hold tightly to Jesus, just as we do the same.
