Happy 3rd Birthday Evan

The one thing *every* mom told me while I was pregnant was to cherish every second because it all goes by too fast. I couldn't agree more and I now give this piece of advice to anyone who will listen. This week is a little hard for me because both of my babies are turning a year older.

Three years ago today, I was playing poker most of the morning to pass the time. I was induced and the doctor didn't come to break my water until after noon. Things progressed pretty quickly after that.


You arrived at 4:02pm. You were really easy on me and I only had to push a few times.


I was able to get the first picture of you and daddy sleeping together while in the hospital.


Here we are about 2 weeks later for one of our first family shots.


This is one of my all time favorite pictures of you. You were about 10 months old here.


This was on your 1st birthday. We celebrated at the beach.


You were all about some cake.


We didn't do too much on your 2nd birthday because Isabella was due any day. You can see mommy's big tummy beside you here.


We went and played on bounce houses and other fun toys.


Two days later, on the 5th-you became a big brother. You are an amazing brother and Isabella loves you as much as you love her. I hope that you will always be close.


This year you were so ready for your birthday party. You woke up every morning for a month asking if it was "Evan's Happy Birthday" yet. We had a double birthday party for you and Isabella on Saturday, July 31st.


I look forward to all of the years that we get to spend together and am thankful for every day that I get to enjoy you. I just wish that you would slow down a little for me. You're growing up before my eyes and I want you to remember that even when you have outgrown my lap(in many years), you will never outgrow my heart.

Stay tuned for more pictures from the party and if you'd like to see lots of pictures from Evan's first 2 years-check out his 2nd birthday post!
