Layla is 3

It seems selfish and silly, but it makes me heart sing a little the moment I realize my kids have known me the longest of their earthly moms. I got this sweet little girl when she was 14 months old and we just celebrated her 3rd birthday which means she has been mine for the majority of her life. And I love being her mother. She has been the biggest light and blessing to our family since the day she arrived. 

Yes that is a milk mustache on her face. :)

She talked about her "pink" birthday for months before it happened. "Pinkalicious" is her favorite book so a pink birthday party was very fitting.

She made her own invitations. Except I never handed them out. I'm that good of a mom. I ended up texting to invite a few of her friends. She had fun making those pink sparkly things anyways. 

Everything was pinkalicious!

My dad took Perry to the park so there were four little girls who played with pink playdough, ate pink cupcakes, danced in pink tu-tus, and played with pink balloons.

When E and the boys got home from backpacking, they joined in the celebration of their 3 year old sister/daughter.
She got to blow out candles again for the family to see.

Happy birthday sweet, L Belle!

You are an awesome Mom, and Layla is such a sweet little three year old. Macie was so excited to go to her party, and still plays with her tutu. Happy Birthday Layla!
