    2. I love YOUR pretty babies! Emory is such a girly B and Of course we think B is fabulous! Happy birthday and happy mama day, Nat.

    3. Happy 3 months to Emory and 3 years to Bennett! That darn Dora Christmas special---even Sipsey grew tired of it as they played it CONSTANTLY. She actually requested to change the channel when it came on. I caught myself chanting "shake your travel cape" too much during the weeks leading up to Christmas!

    4. Happy 3's to your 2! What a blessed mama-a beautiful baby girl and a handsome little boy! Love all the pics. And just crazy how fast time is flying! Cope will be 1 tomorrow! Wow! Tear, tear!

    6. Well, I like to think of these precious babies as MINE too! ;)
      Leaps and Bounds, Nat; they are growing leaps and bounds.
      Such fun; Such joy!
      And that train dangling over her face had me...well, you probably know.
