Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

My sweet, adorable first born daughter is 3 today! It doesn't seem possible that it's been 3 years since I held her for the very first time.

This was very shortly after Alexis entered this world, I was still shaking uncontrollably and I was afraid to hold her just yet. Go here to 
read all about her birth story.

My beautiful girl!

This has got to be one of the happiest looks I've ever seen on Ross' face! He couldn't have been prouder.

Being a mother has been one of the most challenging, yet rewarding things I've ever experienced in my life. If you've been following long, you know that I've had some struggles with Alexis, but she truly is the most precious and beautiful thing that I've ever seen. I'm going to share a few of my favorite pictures from her first 3 years.

I'm really frustrated right now. For some reason, blogger changed a perfectly good photo uploader to a new system and it's giving me fits. It's not letting me upload my photos the way I used to. So, you're going to be getting only the photos that I've previously published on this blog, sorry. If I figure it out, I'll do what I originally intended.

We are off to the zoo today and we are having the big party here at our house on Saturday afternoon. Hope I can figure out this new uploader thing because I'll have lots of pictures to share!
Happy Birthday Baby! I love you, Mommy
