I am SO blessed and thankful to my IPs for the updates over the last few years; I think she is just so gorgeous and am SO proud that I got to be a small part of her beginnings. I cannot believe that she'll be FOUR this July!! Where does the time go?

Amazing to think of all the time, love and energy that can be summed up in this little amazing person!
