Happy 10th Peanut Pie!

It is so hard to believe that our peanut is 10 today! This amazing little human that we created is double digits. 
We could not have asked for a kinder, better mannered, sweeter, happier kid than our little one. She is the best friend, sister and daughter and is always thinking of others. 
She has a great imagination, a zest for life and an awesome infectious giggle. From the moment she was born she has been a ray of sunshine. She is our sunshine baby. Coming before the storms of loss - the gift that kept us going during the hardest moments. 
In the past year she has been through so much and done so much growing up. We are so excited to see the person she becomes. This girl has a heart of gold and makes us proud every single day. 
For her birthday she requested a slideshow and in that slideshow it was very important to her that I include pictures of her hospital stay and the song "fight song". So along with many others, these are a part of her life and her story, so a part of her slideshow. 
So many changes and milestones. Hard to imagine it has been 10 years since she made me a mom. 
Here is to the happiest birthday and an awesome year ahead! We love you Peanut!! 

Happy Birthday Sam...

It is hard to believe a year has passed since you came into our lives. You have brought absolute joy into our home and our hearts every single day since. Your infectious smile and your giggles and babbles make life even better. You are independent and smart and have no problem letting us know what you want. From the moment you were born I knew that you would be a force to be reckoned with, our little stink. You have wisdom in your eyes far beyond your year and surprise me daily with your expressions and actions. 
You are more than a baby, more than our daughter, you are a miracle. A perfect little mix of daddy and mommy with a slowly growing head of red. Your eyes are so blue they sparkle and your teeth are filling up your little mouth so quickly! 
When I think back to last year, to how scared I was for you to make your entrance. To how that fear vanished when I saw your face.  I am so thankful every minute of every day that God gave us you. I have enjoyed every second of watching you become this little person you have this year and I am so excited to see how much you change and grow as you are one. You are the piece of our puzzle that has healed our hearts and made us whole. We love you so much Sam Sammerson. Happy Birthday Baby Girl!
