Today, we celebrated Holden's second birthday surrounded by many of our amazing family members and dearest friends! For two hours my little man, dressed like a cute train engineer, road the rails of his own private train! His smile stretched from ear to ear, his little hand waved vigorously, and his heart was incredibly happy as the train raced down the tracks! It was amazing to see him so excited, feeling special, and loved by all!

Moments like the one captured below do not happen everyday, every week, or even every month! Moments like the one captured today, are the type of interactions I yearn for, relish in, and imprint on my heart forever! I'm so thankful my sweet friend, Lyndsey, captured this moment and sent it to me with no words attached! No caption is necessary here, and only a fellow Momma would understand how special these few seconds of pure connection with my little dude really were! The twinkle in his eye, the crinkle in his nose, and the giggle in his throat captured in this priceless picture are images and sounds that I will never forget! My love for this sweet boy runs further then any train track he could ever build or ride.

It's been a few months since I've last written, last documented, last let my emotions fill a page. Life gets busy, days turn into weeks-weeks into days, and other happenings take importance over the simple pleasures of writing the story of my life, of our lives.
In December, we had our family pictures taken for our Christmas Card at Eldorado Park in Long Beach. As always, it was "fun" to try and get all three kiddos to sit, smile and look at the camera all at the same exact time. At the time the pictures were taken, Giulietta was 6 years, 2 months, Presley was 4 years, and Holden 1 year, 5 months.
Tonight as I look back at the pictures, it's amazing to see how much my trio has changed and grown in the last four months. Longer hair, stretched out bodies and tanner skin are only the easily recognizable changes. Giulietta can read and dance, Presley tells us how it is and makes us laugh with her wit, and Holden says more words and rides his scooter. They grow too fast. I spend each day with them, almost every waking moment in fact, but they continue to grow, continue to change, continue to not allow me to keep them small forever.
