Our Sweet Girl

One of the great things about having two of my kids' birthdays within 5 days of each other is that I get to reflect on how wonderful and unique each of my children are. Myla turns 3 today! She has been eagerly anticipating this day for awhile. We have been counting down the days.

Myla. Where do I even begin with this girl? More than any of my children, she brings out the extreme emotions in me. One minute we'll be butting heads with her screaming her head off (and me wanting to pull my hair out) and the next we'll be cuddling on the couch with Myla giving me lovies and telling me she "lubs" me (and me wondering what I did to deserve her). That is Myla. What she does she does with her whole heart. And she inspires me to do the same. I know that stubborness and tenacity that she has will work for her good someday.

Myla and Cade are the best of friends. They share a room and many times, when they should be sleeping, I'll peek in and find them playing some imaginary game and giggling like crazy. As stubborn as Myla may be with me and Kevin, she is usually very giving and patient with Cade. Even though she may be younger than him, she still nurtures him and tries to make him happy. She does the same with Gavin. I love that sibling bond they have.

Sweet. Sassy. Smart. That's my girl.

Happy birthday Myla!



Oh look at her! What a doll!

OH MY! This post warmed my heart so much! I love stubborn children, and I mean that genuinely. I really love Myla, and I cannot wait to see what she does with all of that focus. :) Happy birthday to MYLA!!!


Happy Birthday Myla you are sure a cutie patootie.

She is so sweet, reminds me of my sweet Elle... gotta love our girls.


Sounds like a cute girl and a typical 3 year old. I am learning more and more that Mom's of little girls are often in the same boat and all feel like we are often going up the creek without a paddle. Happy Birthday Myla


I love what you said about Myla's extemes in behavior. I get that from my 3 1/2 year's was nice to know I am not the only one!

What sweet adorable kids you have and what a sweet and adorable mommy they have!
