Three years ago I went to this baby shower
Its hard to believe come January that our baby bean will be three years old.  She is so full of spunk and fire, and love.  She is one of my tiny blessings.

Her and Macey.
Yes she can be as ornery as she looks.  Macey is very patient and kind to her.

I have nine tiny blessings in my life.  Some of them not so tiny anymore.....last night I was talking to Marcus's mom whose birthday is next month and in my mind he was turning 11 surely not 12, I was shocked when his mom pointed out to me he would be 13!!   I thought, "oh no, he is almost there, ....soon he will be stepping out the door, and leaving with a heartfelt wave, and his love for his family tucked away in his suitcases...............'    I wanted to slow down time..........stop the clock.

Macey, Sarge and Marcus.    He reminds me of my Dad.  That's a present in itself.

So last month Macey had her birthday, I am thinking 7 but now I am doubting if I am right or asked her mom if they could make her party a "REVEAL PARTY", she is such a smart little girl, cos even at my age, I didn't know what that meant.

Her mom thought that was so sweet of Mace to make the party about someone else, and not just her.  So her mom had a special cake made, and when the day of the party came,

 Macey cut the cake, we all held our breath, her family was all watching..............and the knife sliced the first piece and the cake was pink.............she thought it would be blue!

1 more tiny blessing coming our way.
This is baby Pearl. (we think that will be her name)  She is just waiting for the love of her family.   And I know one day just like all my other blessings she also will turn around and wave, with a full suitcase of love she has been given along her life's way. 

I know we all have times we wish we could stop the clock, turn it back, keep them small.

Here is her family who is anxiously awaiting her arrival.  Not to count grandpa and grandma, aunts, and uncles and cousins.

4 tiny blessings.
