Tate turns 5!

To my sweet Tate man,

You are getting so big! I feel like it was just yesterday I was in the hospital waiting for your arrival. You were so beautiful. You came out looking big and chubby with some of the biggest hands I have ever seen! I have never felt so much love. You were all mine and I knew I wouldn't be the same. Becoming your mommy changed me. Instead of thinking about myself, you consume all of my thoughts. I would do anything for you. You are my whole world. How did I ever live without you? I would just stare at you for hours in amazement, that you were part of me. Words cannot even begin to describe the joy you bring me everyday! Just when I think you can't get any cuter, you prove me wrong. I think that I can't love you more, you prove me wrong. You melt my heart with your sweet kisses that I don't even have to ask you for! You give them to me all on your own. I know our spirits are in tune, you can tell when mommy is having a bad day, you are extra sweet. You are even more than I could have ever imagined! You were my buddy from the start!. A match made in heaven! And I thank my father in heaven every day for trusting me with your sweet spirit. I hope that I can be the mother you deserve. A mother to teach you to live up to your full potential. And to return with honor to live with your father in heaven. We are a family forever. You will always be apart of me. That is the greatest gift I could ever receive. You are getting too big! I didn't say you could grow up. Next year you'll go to Kindergarten, then high school Then you'll leave me and go on a mission. Then find a girl to take to the temple and start an eternal family of your own. ( please promise me this is very very far far away!) But we will always be connected. You may never fully know how much I truly love you. You will become a daddy some day and maybe get a glimpse of how much your mom loves you. I promise you my sweet Tate, I will always love you no matter what. No matter what life may throw at you to knock you down I will always be there to lift you back up. You will make mistakes but I will be here to help you fix them. Like I said before I would do anything for you! Those days will come sooner than I'm ready for, so for now I will cherish our sweet moments together. You aren't so little anymore. But you make me the happiest girl in the world. I am proud to be your mommy! Love you !

Happy Birthday Tate man!

I was putting laundry away down stairs I came back and this was what Kendyl was into. She turns the water faucet on in my bathroom its right at her level and reach she turned the faucet to were it was pointing outside of the bathtub.

Playing in the rain

Dressing up

Kendyl loves to put clothes and shoes on all by herself I found her one morning like this.

Kendyl's first big owie

Kendyl and Tate were playing in my room and I was in the kitchen fixing dinner and on the phone talking to Shawn when all of a sudden I heard this scream like a really bad hurt cry i run into my room and I see blood dripping down Kendyl's face she hit the window Ceil. I told Shawn I would call him back of course is on shift when anything happens it seems like. I called my best friend Erin to see if she can watch Tate while I take K to the Urgent Care I meet up with Erin and drop Tate off. I then call my sister Heather to see if she can meet me at Urgent Care to help me. They ended up gluing the cut and we were on our way. Miss K did awesome for her first trip to Urgent Care.
