Happy Daddy

Tim became a dad for the first time January 31st, 2005 when Elise was born. This picture of Tim kissing Elise is one of my all time favorites. (My mom took the picture!) So when Corinna was born September 15th, 2009 making Tim a dad for a second time I had to stage a kissing picture. I love these pictures side by side revealing the moment Tim fell in love with his sweet precious daughters.

Tim is the wonderful dad. I am often in awe of his ability to parent with what seems to be ease. He is a natural teacher allowing the girls to listen, watch and participate in whatever the task at hand might be. His explanations are simple, to the point, and on their level. We jokingly say, "Tim's lot in life is to be surrounded by beautiful girls." He takes the girly-ness of our household in stride. He can play dolls, pretend, and yes the occasional dress up with the best of them. He is one incredible dad and I blessed to watch him love and parent our sweet girls!

Happy Father's Day Tim!

Pemanent Marker!!!!

While on the telephone with Tim this afternoon Corinna walked up to me looking like this....

Corinna found a permanent marker. The really big and thick kind you would use to make a poster. She came to me with the marker in hand and my phone call with Tim ended with, "I have to go now, bye." Thankfully her canvas was her mouth and I am hopeful in time her tongue will not longer be black!

She's SIX!

Oh my heart! Today I took a six year old to school. I am not sure how we got here so fast. When I was looking through pictures for the collage I kept thinking I remember that just like it happened a little bit ago instead of years ago.

Elise came into this world January 31, 2005 at 5:32pm weighing 7 lbs 4 oz and was 20 1/2 inches long. Today six years later she weighs 43 lbs 4 oz and is 43 inches tall.

She is growing into a wonderful little girl. She is so hard working, eager to please, and has a very compassionate heart. It brings a smile to my face when her sentences begin with "Mom, did you know..." She has a knack for getting her baby sister to belly laugh harder than anyone else. When asked if she would rather have a big sister than be a big sister her immediate and proud response, "I like being the big sister."

We are so blessed that God has given her to us! Happy 6th Birthday, Elise!
