The Two Fastest Years of My Life

After giving birth to two boys, I'd pretty much settled into the fact that being a boy mom was my destiny. Then, two years ago today at 8:15 a.m. Life turned pretty in pink with the addition of this little girl. 

She's everything I thought our little girl would be: girly, a little shy, adventurous and very funny. And she's everything I never thought she'd be: stubborn, fearless, super sensitive and a tad bossy. 

Before she arrived on the scene, I thought our life was complete with my stepdaughter and the boys. Clearly I'd put a period where God intended a comma. Now I can't even remember what life was like before her. She was the surprise that grew me in ways I never imagined.

Most days she leaves me wishing I'd had her in my younger years rather than my Sarah years. She's forever into something that I'd never pushing a chair up to the stove to snag a freshly baked muffin or slathering coconut oil all over herself. It really seems like just a few months ago, I was a sleep-deprived mother of a newborn girl. Now, I've got a little person who is trying to rule the school with her opinions and demands.

In two short years, her personality has come full bloom. She's headstrong yet nurturing. A smart, quick learner who loves books, music, dancing and Doc McStuffins. So looking forward to the rest of my life with this little girl and helping her to be the best she can be in life. Happy birthday girlie! We love you so very much.
