3years ago...

It's hard to believe this was me 3 years ago (May 2009)
(maternity pics by Cloud Dust Photography)


..and here we are now....

3 years ago, I blogged This and this was her first real picture at 9:00am (barely a 1/2day old)

And 2 years ago I blogged This and she looked like this on May 12, 2012

And I blogged This last year this time and how she looked at almost 2

She was sooo happy because she learned how to potty at 23 months old!!
Can't believe it..... My how God has blessed us!!!!!! The 3rd bday prep is in definitely in swing!! Here's the invite I created and designed

I'm very upset tho though the fabric I want to make her outfit is all the way in Japan and won't be here before June 9 th(her bday party date)

Is it cute and PERFECT?! Oh well....I've settled on a different print by Michael Miller.....pics to come....because my focus is now on Tonight....it is Shelby's very 1st dance recital and YES I'm gonna try to video this time, if I can contain my sobbing through the dances. Lol. She's such a little miracle. We were told that children may not be a possibility for us but after years of fertility treatments and prayers (#1 most important thing!), God blessed us with Shelby Lynne on June 12, 2009 at 7:54am. Every plan we had to get pregnant, deliver a baby, and everything you "say you'll do," has been blown out tha water, and I wouldn't have it any other way!! The journey to where we are now hasn't been easy at all but has made us stronger and more reliant on The Lord to carry us through! If everything went as planned, there would be no need for God and that's not the life I want for us or myself. Thank you Lord for the struggles that turn into miracles!

Thanks for posting the link to your 3 year ago post (link didn't work but I copied and pasted it). It almost brought a tear to my eye. I can't believe that our babies are getting so big. Josiah would fuss at me for calling him a baby. He is a BIG boy not a little boy and definitely not a baby. LOL

Thank you so much for reminding me of that! God never said this life would be easy, but he did say it would be worth it and that he would be there with us every step of the way. Happy (almost) birthday to your sweet baby girl... errrr.... little lady!! :)
