Comfort of Training Wheels

 

Soon it will be time to let go of the training wheels, but right now she wants that support. Although, I want her to learn to go without the support on her bike, I know that this is extra time I have with her needing that comfort of knowing she is not going to fall.  When we move on to the next stage, there will be cuts, bumps and bruises along the way, but I know it will add character and strength to my growing little girl.

As she grows, she will know that I will be her training wheels until she is ready to spread her wings.  I have plenty of time before then and I am hoping to soak every last bit of her experiences in.  JR-2961 JR-2987 JR-2988 JR-2992 JR-2993 JR-2995 JR-2996

Leanna’s 3rd Birthday

Quite a bit over due, but here’s a 3 year old that’s growing up ever so quickly!  I can not believe she is 3 and don’t even want to believe it.  Once my sweet little child, now my sweet little growing child of which I do not want to let grow.  It’s amazing how much they know at this age, how much of a vocabulary they have and how well they can communicate with you.  It’s also amazing how easily they can melt your heart, either by words, actions or just being.  Emotions run deep in this home and with 3 girls I am sure there will be plenty emotions running about around the 1 man standing in this house.

Little Leanna, you are my joy, you make me smile and laugh and you definitely make my heart sing.  I can’t believe you are 3, it feels as though just yesterday I was holding you in my arms in the hospital bed.  Slow down for me my little one.  I want to soak in all the time I can possibly have with you.

She asked to take photos with her Umi-Zoomi figures, so we did!

Happy 3rd Birthday!  I hope it was Umi-riffic!

Family Photos at Lockridge Park

A trip out to Pennsylvania to meet up with this beautiful family.  Celebrating a little boy’s 2nd birthday and wonderful wedding anniversary this week, there’s just so much excitement how can it all be contained?!  WE all got through this hot day, hopefully they were able to enjoy some well deserved water ice afterwards.  Happy Birthday! and Happy Anniversary!
