My baby girl turns 3 today. After already having one child with a birthday in the Christmas week, I had to laugh when we got matched with a baby that was born on Christmas Eve. Marlie shares her birthday month with one brother and the birthday day (24th) with the other. Yep. She is a perfect fit for our family. Three is not only my favorite number, but it also happens to be one of my favorite ages too. When kids are three, and can fully verbalize every little thing on their minds... it is then that their personalities shine through. She is my girl and I am blessed to be her mother. I hope to raise her to be strong and proud of who she is. I may be biased, but I think this girl is destined for greatness. And today we celebrate her.
Here are the highlights of her birthday photo shoot Marshall did last week. Marlie is wearing her new birthday dress and glittery birthday shoes.
After the photo shoot, I ran at her, scooped her up and spun her around. Marshall kept taking pictures, capturing the sun flair in his camera for effect. You can see those pictures here.
And if you want to see an unbelievably beautiful picture of Marlie, you should see Marshall's current post here.
