Isla Reese turns 3!

Written on 07/06/2012

Today is my sweet youngest baby girl’s 3rd birthday! I’m completely in shock that it’s already been 3 years since I laid eyes on my feisty little girl. She was stubborn the second she came out of the womb and life has only gotten sweeter since!

There’s something so special about Isla. She has these curls that can stop traffic. She has these crisp clear hazel eye’s that melt your soul. I’m so madly in love with her spunky personality and I can’t resist her sweetness! She’s my snuggle monster and my little best bud. She loves to be at my side wherever we go. She loves to dance, sing and give kisses. She can hold a baby doll on her hip like no one’s biz.

She’s amazing.

I’m sad today as I look through her baby pictures (and a bit overwhelmed considering I have about 20,000 of them) and it’s strange to think my days of having another baby are over. I’m so fulfilled by my two blessings but I imagine each year as they grow older will be a little hard on me!

This morning was warm and sunny. A perk to having a baby in July! Isla wasted NO time and changed promptly from her PJ’s to her swimsuit. She had a waffle piled high with whip cream and sprinkles and then enjoyed a fruity popsicle and some pool time fun with her BFF and big sister Cohen.

I’ve been listening to giggles, screams, talking, singing and pure goodness all morning and I am so thankful this is my life everyday.

We leave for a long trip tomorrow to visit family so today I will shrug off the stress and soak in my angel’s birthday!

I love you, miss Poo! You’re my precious angel!

“Isla, show mommy your big beautiful eyes!”


Loves of my life and best buds!

Happy Birthday precious girl! I love you more than salt!
