Waverly Birthday Weekend & A Giveaway

Happy, happy birthday weekend to my first baby girl!  Part of me feels like it can't even be possible that you have been here for three whole years, yet most of me can't imagine what life was like without you.  THREE, you make it look good, little lady.
 

I get a little emotional every year around this time, not because I'm sad that you are growing too fast (even though you are!), but because it always makes me step back & truly realize how amazing you have made our lives since the day you were born.  It's crazy how such a little person can do that.  Words can't explain how much joy to bring to our home, how important you are to us, or how thankful we are for you.  Your spirited, infectious personality keeps us on our toes, it always has & these days, it does more than ever.  You are high-maintenance, we are sure of it, you are sassy, spunky, dramatic, and you don't ever like to sit still.  Yet we wouldn't change any of it, because it's all part of YOU, the little girl who has stolen our hearts & who no doubt, is our biggest accomplishment.  You, Wave Maye, LOVE life, you take advantage of every moment & are teaching us to do the same.  You are smart, curious and adventurous, you are beyond funny, and you have the best imagination of anyone I have ever known.  You have a heart of gold & are sweet to everyone, always asking questions & wanting to help in any way.  And best of all, at the end of everyday, you want nothing more than a hug & a kiss, from us, your mama & daddy.  You have shown us the true meaning of unconditional love, & though I know it's supposed to be the other way around, you have taught us more about life in the past three years than all of our years combined before you.

You drive us absolutely crazy, & at the same time, we are so crazy in love with you.  We cannot wait to celebrate you all weekend long!
  

And since we are in celebration mode, a fun giveaway!  Firmoo, a global online optical store, is giving one lucky reader a pair of glasses!  They have so many super cute options, glasses & sunglasses, they sent me a pair to review earlier this year & I loved them.  You can see the post here, I usually don't wear glasses but it has been so fun to wear them every once in a while, they also have a variety of sunglasses as well!  Enter below, the giveaway will end next Thursday & the winner will be announced next Friday, July 31st. 
 
 
Happy weekend!
XO

  8. Happy Birthday weekend! The quote "the days are long but the years are short" totally applies here ;) Nothing makes a mama reflect more than another birthday when you always remember the first moment you got to meet your bundle of joy!
