Kate and Addison

Kate, you came into my life over three years ago. You officially gave me the title "mommy". You changed me from the moment I laid eyes on you. Kate you have taught me how to love more than I ever thought possible, not to sweat the small stuff and that laughing feels so much better than crying. Over the past three years as your mommy I have come a long way. Concerns of napping and ounces in have turned to concerns of learning numbers and letters. You bring so much color and enthusiasm to our family. You crack me up with your newest sayings and discussions with inanimate objects. You can tell quite the story and almost make a believer out of me. God has great things in store for you. I never dreamed the baby I held in my arms on April 25, 2007, would be an independent, free spirited, fun-loving little girl like you. I love you!

Addison, from the time I carried you life was full of questions. From extreme morning sickness to where I would deliever you to where would I bring you home. You rocked our world early on and continue to do so. You screamed on the way out and screamed for the first 3 months of your life - poor baby in so much pain and I did not even know. Addison you changed me as a mother. You taught me to stop and smell the roses. You gave me the opportunity to really embrace motherhood and seize the opportunities - they can go so fast. God sent you to me and I am so thankful that you changed me. I love rocking you each night as you cuddle up next to me. You are quite the little firecracker and stand your own. You are just as independent as your sister and I have a feeling parenting Kate first was to prepare us for you. You are so loved!

To my sweet girls. Motherhood is more than I ever dreamed it would be. I would be lost without you! Always remember you are the daughters of the greatest King!
