Marlie - 5 years old

Marlie, it absolutely cannot be true that you are 5 years old. Its just too big. For five years you've been making me laugh and keeping me on my toes.

You are full of energy all of the time. Like bouncing off the walls energy that makes me smile and also makes me long for a nap :).

You LOVE school. I'm sure that you will be ready for kindergarten in the fall. You love to dance. You love anything pink and sparkly. You love to be outside. You love your little brother. You love people. Half of the time you are the one introducing me to a new friend at the park.

This was a big year for you. You went from being our one and only, to one of two and its been a little rough. Pretty soon there will be a third and I worry a little bit about how you will do, but we'll work out the kinks together. You will always be my first kiddo. I love you to pieces.

Marlie and Tate share the big news

Yep, kiddo #3 is coming sometime in mid-October. Yes, it was on purpose. Yes, are excited! And slightly terrified. Its going to be a little crazy around here,
but life is crazy.

I'm almost through my first trimester already. That was quick! With Marlie and Tate it felt like it lasted forever. I felt so sick that I just wanted to crawl under the covers and never come out. This time around I've felt pretty darn good. Tired, but I can't complain. What a huge blessing!

Welp, that's it. Just wanted to pop in and share the news!

Tate Boy, 1 year old

Oh sweet Tate. I have no idea how a year can have gone by already. I tried not to take the moments for granted and I knew it would go fast, but somehow time still got away from me.

You have a little bit more hair. You have rolls for ankles. You have the softest skin and the squishiest cheeks.

You are talking a lot. You love saying "hi" to everyone we see and "bye" to anyone we leave. You say "no" more than any other word. Sometimes if we tell you we love you, then you will even say it back.

You are walking quite a bit, taking up to 10 steps at a time now. You get so tickled when you walk and giggle the whole way.

You have made this year fun for all of us. You've kept us smiling and laughing. Happy Birthday tiny man. We love you.
