Happy Rachel Day!


Sweet Rachel, 18 months ago I became a Mommy! Hard to believe how fast time is going by…

18 months

So much has happened and you have grown so much since even  your first birthday just a few months ago.  Giggles, smiles, tickles and “Hi Mama”‘s last all day long.  Of course, who could forget your frequent trips to the dog bed and your “oh-so-serious” face when Mommy grabs her camera! You can always be heard calling for “DAAAH-DEE!!!!” and greeting “Zeusie” with a grin at the start of each new day.  You love your “bear bows” (hair bows), but just as quickly as you ask for Mama to put one in, you can be found pulling it out!  Chasing you all around (since you are always on the “go, go, go!” these days) and managing through the occasional meltdowns can sometimes be tiring, but when you say “lub boo” (love you), it makes it all more than worth it.

You are a Daddy’s girl through and through.  He is your buddy, your playmate and your protector.  I am thankful you are blessed to have that bond.  Your wispy curls and chubby thighs can melt Mommy’s heart any day of the week.


I love your sweet snuggles and butterfly kisses before bed.   Of course, night time would not be complete without reading Goodnight Moon (“Moo!” as you say), at least once or twice…or even three times!


All in all, little one, you are simply the best!

Love you to the moon and back,
