Echo is Five!

 My baby girl is turning five today. Five! For some reason there is something about that number that just screams big kid to me. Five feels like we are entering a whole new era.

Echo, I am beyond proud of the girl you are growing up to be. You are strong, beautiful and imaginative. You are also one of the sweetest most caring people that I have ever known.

You haven't always been easy on me. In fact you challenge me like no one else, but because of this I feel so incredibly close to you now. All of our struggles throughout the years have helped forge the wonderfully strong relationship that we have.

 On your Birthday each year, it's fun to think back on your early days. Your soft, fuzzy head of hair. Your tiny hands and wrinkled skin. The countless sleepless nights and the wonder and joy that we had created something so perfect. None of this compares to knowing you as you are now however, I wouldn't trade my days with you for anything.

I can't wait to see what this year has in store for you. You are a truly beautiful spirit and I love you more each day.

Happy Birthday my darling girl! I'm so lucky to be your mommy!

August Photos

As is typical of August, I have very few photos. Not only was I super busy but it was also really hot! I usually get tired of lugging my camera around in addition to lunches, sunscreen and swimming gear so a lot of our August activities remain undocumented. Oh well. I do have a couple shots from Clover's Birthday. We had some friends join us at the piedmont park pool for swimming and cake.

 Here is a random shot of the lovely Pandora :-)

We went to Ponce City Market for my mom's Birthday and I got a few pictures of that as well

Lastly our friend Remy having way too much fun with our gel pens on a playdate ;-)

Look forward to more pictures with the cooler temperatures of September.
