I can't even believe that it has been THREE years since I first held you in my arms. You were so perfect, tiny and new. I had waited so long for you and I was so excited. You were my first, my first tiny little baby girl. I was so nervous to drive on the snowy roads with you, you were so tiny in your little car seat. You were an angel baby, just what Heavenly Father knew I needed. 

You started changing so much everyday, I couldn't take pictures fast enough of all of your first moments in life. Smiles, giggles, baths... crawling, standing, toddling all about the house. I was so excited for each new thing you learned how to do, I didn't realize how fast my little baby was growing up, and then you were ONE!! My little girl had gotten so big!

You loved to play and climb, no matter how many times you fell and bumped your head you were always got back up and started where you left off. Your smiles and laughter are rays of sunshine for my soul. You bring me so much happiness. You kept growing, and growing and before I knew it you were TWO!!!

Now you're THREE, I can hardly believe it! You have grown up and changed in so many ways. I love how excited you were to become a big sister, 

and what an amazing big sister you are. 

You speak so kind to her and always watch out for her, I know you are going to be the best of buddies forever. You have learned to speak so politely and I love to hear the phrases you come up with. The best part of the morning is having you come crawling into my bed to wish me a good morning. I love your big hugs and kisses, I can't get enough of them! I love what a big helper you are and how happy you are to help me clean up and organize things. You are my precious Sarah Bear.

Sarah I love you so much. Thanks for loving me back no matter how cranky and ornery I am. You'll always be my sweet baby girl, no matter how big you get. I love you to the moon and back Sarah. 

Happy 3rd Birthday Sarah!

Awww cute! Happy Birthday Sarah! I love that girl. June reminds me so much of her when she was little (maybe thats because shes like the only little baby girl I ever got to spend a good amount of time with though...) Hope she had a good day!

Ahhh that's way cute Liz! Sarah was such a cute baby and now she's becoming a gorgeous lil girl, just like her mama. ;)
It's been awhile since I've read. I've been a slacker in the blogging community. Looks like Abby is just like my Freddie. Better keep the two away from each other or we could have serious problems on our hands. I miss ya so much every time I read your blog. I can't wait till you guys come home. :(

You made me cry! My beautiful Sarah is growing up way to fast. Oh how I miss those babysitting days while you were in school. I'm sure you don't.:)

Liz, it is so fun seeing all those darling pictures. She was such a little doll when she was born (still is) but all that hair? Are you kidding me? My poor little girl will probably take after me and be bald till she is two. I loved seeing your cute pregnant pictures too. Did you take the last two pictures??? They are beautiful. I love them!

Thanks everyone!

Ashley S. - the last to are actually taken by Alisha {Hansen} Siddoway, we went to high school with her, she was a year younger than us. She did my family's pictures over Christmas and did a wonderful job. Very happy about them. I don't know if I will ever get THAT good!
