#ThrowbackThursday: My Baby Boy....

Hi My Loves!!!

Today's #ThrowbackThursday is very special to me because it's all about my little angel. My first baby and my best little buddy, Phoenix. I'm writing this on Wednesday but by the time you read this, it will be Phoenix's 3rd Birthday! I can't believe it. Three years have gone by since our lives changed forever and we welcomed the biggest blessing we could ever experience. I am so in love with my little man, I can't even describe my love for him. He's so special, loving, caring, sweet. He is always there to make me smile when I need it, tell me I'm beautiful when I feel ugly and tell me he loves me at the perfect time. He's just my best little guy. He told me yesterday, "Mommy, you look so beautiful, you are my best friend." He melts my heart daily ;)

So here is a few pictures over the last 3 years of Phoenix's life, starting with his very first picture. 

How cute is that little smile?

Best feeling in the world after waiting 9 long months to meet your child. It's an instant love that can never be broken.

Here he is at 10 months old on Christmas :)

Just having a conversation on the "phone" :)

Baby's First Christmas!

He's the best big brother to Lily. He loves her so much!

My little angel baby!!

Here he is eating his favorite treat on his 2nd birthday. Chocolate covered strawberries are a hit in our house. How cheeky is that look haha!!

Phoenix loves shopping and loves trying on sunglasses... these looked really good ;)

How beautiful of a little face can you get?

Can't forget him on his Uncle Rob's motorcycle. He had so much fun sitting on this and getting his picture taken this Summer.

It's amazing how fast they grow up. It does not feel like three years have gone by. I just try to soak in each moment with my babies because I know before long they will be grown up and hanging out with their friends and no longer telling me I'm their best friend (I hope they still do but you never know).... It makes me tear up :( 

So here is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my amazing little boy Phoenix.
  You have brought me joy & love each and every single day. You have filled my heart with more love than I could ever imagine and made me smile even when I didn't think I could. You make me feel so special and you've made me a better person. Thank you for changing my life and teaching me patience, everlasting love and making me the happiest Mama in the world. I love you so very much and hope I make you feel as loved as you make me feel. You are sweet, smart, loving, caring and happy. Your smile melts my heart and you are the best son I could have ever dreamed of. Thank you for being the best big brother to Lily and making your Daddy and I so proud. 
We love you! 
Love, Mommy, Daddy, Lily & Moo

  23. The decoration and the props were great. Did you know that there has been a natural gender selection method which is really effective for the women in selecting the gender of their unborn child? Isn't that amazing?
