My baby is 3!!!

I cannot believe my baby is 3! Shayla shocked us three years ago by coming to us more than two weeks early. Both of my boys had been late, so I was shocked and confused when my water broke that morning. But boy, oh, boy did we love having her join our family! There were a lot of babies born that day, and one of the nurses walked into our room and said, "Oh! Yours is the cute one!" Yes, she is ...

Shayla is such a sweet, sweet, sweet girl! I've heard that girls have so much attitude, and thus far I've LOVED my little Shayla's sweetness and joy. I was just realizing today that by her age my boys had stood in time out A LOT ... and with Shayla all I have to do is threaten time-out and/or count and she stops whatever she is doing. (In fact, since she's only had to go to time-out twice, I'm not sure she even knows what it is!)

Anyway, we feel blessed beyond measure to have such a sweetheart in our home. I took some pics for her birthday that are just adorable! You can see that she's definitely growing up, but she still has a little of her baby cheeks. I'm guessing by next year those will be gone, so enjoy while you can!







I seriously just can't believe how cute this little girl is!

Love,

PS - The house progress looks so exciting! Yea! Congratulations with it moving along and getting closer to being ready. Our friends added on and had to move out for several months because it was so unlivable. Way to go, Denise!

My boys get put in time out a lot as well. Shayla looks so cute. I love the pictures you took. I wish we lived closer so that you could take cute pictures of my kids too.

I have to agree with everyone else... she is a cutie! She is so cute that you should probably have another one just like her :)
