My sweet Liberty,
You are my sweet baby girl. My bundle of energy and love. The friendliest child I have ever birthed and had the privilege of loving. You are a spit-fire and know what you want in this world. I love that about you.
You are sweet and sassy, love your friends, your siblings (most of the time), and Mama and Fuzzy Chin. You haven’t called Daddy “Daddy” in a very long time…just Fuzzy Chin. We all love it.
I love how forgiving you are, especially with your siblings. They are not always the kindest to you, but you continually forgive them and keep trying to get along with everyone. When your feelings get hurt, you get mad, but then you get on with life…usually. You have been known to have some pretty epic meltdowns, so when you do get mad, everyone knows it.
I love your sense of humor. You are such a funny girl. You love to make people laugh. This makes everyone like you.
Every bit the girlie-girl, you love all things pink and princess. Playing dress-up, getting your nails done, looking fancy; these are all very important parts of your life.
You try hard to make sure everyone feels included and wanted when you play. I especially love how you make sure to include your sister when you meet new friends. You know it is easier for you to meet people than it is for her, so you introduce her and include her. When you do this, it makes my heart swell with love.
.You are such a great sister to all the kids. Being smack-dab in the middle isn’t easy, but you seem to love it. The little boys adore you, and the big kids do too (even though they don’t always show it). You are so musically talented. You can hear a song once and know it. This makes for some pretty funny moments as you sing songs I had no idea you even knew!
I am so glad you are my sweet baby girl. Your heart is golden and I am so proud of the wonderful girl you are. Keep being a good friend and sister and you will go far.
Love you baby,
We moved!!!! Oh you guys, I can’t even tell you how exciting that is. When we moved to Texas from Utah, we found a rental house and planned to stay in it for 6 months. When that first 6 months was up and our house hadn’t sold, we decided to stay in our rental for [...]
Eight years ago right now, I was waking up with a sweet bundle of baby girl next to me. Her soft cries were met by her older brother discovering his new best friend. Since the day she was born, those two have been the dynamic duo and I love it. My sweet Amelia, You are [...]
Today you are 10. Two whole hands, a decade. Today marks 10 years of my rainbow, my baby that blessed me in the stormiest part of my life. My sweet boy. You are fierce, headstrong, determined, quick witted, and so sweet. You have a tender heart, and a vivid imagination. People flock to you because [...]
When you have a large family, one of the questions that you get repeatedly, from your family, friends, the person bagging your groceries and strangers on the street is, “Are you done?” I’m never sure why anyone feels it is their right to know if my husband will impregnate me again, but they do. I [...]
There is something to be said for having roots. Having a place to call your own. A place where you can really feel like you belong because you know you aren’t going anywhere. In Utah, we had a lovely garden and yard. We cared for our lawn. I planted flowers in the spring, took great [...]
