This little girl really makes my heart sing. She is so spunky, fun, and loving. She runs right up to me, "Come Care, Come." When we are on the playground, "No Mommy, Care push me." Her little sentences are so adorable! She has new words every time we see her! I have such a soft place in my heart for this little one. I can vividly remember when she was born, and visiting her in the hospital with Cali.


Look at that little bundle and all of that hair!!


It is amazing how much time and memories have passed between our families. Cali and I have grown so close in the past 3+ years. It is hard to imagine my life without her. She is such a generous and giving friend, and supported me so much in the past month with Ellie's birth and coming home. I hope I can make it up to her some day!

We got to celebrate Amalie's second birthday last weekend (which she shares with my sister...I knew I loved this girl!). It was a gorgeous day, and Amalie Rose was the star!


Singing Happy Birthday!


Waiting on some cake, of course!

Amalie is obsessed with all things "Baby Ellie" right now. She spent part of her birthday parked next to Ellie's stroller just checking her out.

Trying to show me, "I'm two!"


Gotta include the big kids too, and my do they both look big!

Bradley is showing Larken how to play dinosaur. I'm not sure if she is into it!
